Traffic branch issues 98 traffic tickets to omnibus drivers
The traffic branch of the Royal St Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force continues to clamp down on motorists who have failed to comply with regulation 31 of the Motor Vehicle and Road Traffic Act, Regulation 483 of the Revised Edition of the Laws of SVG.
Regulation 31 mandates that motorists who are desirous of playing amplified music in their motor vehicles must first seek approval from the Commissioner of Police.
According to Superintendent Kenneth John, head of the Traffic Branch, 98 traffic tickets were issued to uncompliant omnibus drivers over the past two weeks. The tickets were issued to drivers plying the routes at the SVG Community College in Villa, the Division of Technical Education in Arnos Vale and in several other communities.
Superintendent John encourages all motorists to exercise caution for other road users during this busy Christmas season when driving on the public roads and to comply with the traffic regulations in the State.
He also wishes to remind all drivers and motor vehicle owners that it is their responsibility to ensure that their driver’s licences and motor vehicle insurance are always up to date.
