The Southern Division continues to be vigilant in their road traffic exercises in an effort to combat errant road users throughout the division and to make the roads safer for all.
On Saturday 13th February, 2021 the Oropuche and Penal Police Stations conducted these exercises between the hours of 3 pm and 11 pm.
During the exercise 69 persons were ticketed for various offences.
The breakdown of the 69 tickets issued are as follows:
18 – No Seat Belt
17 – Excess Speed

5 – No Certificate of Insurance
5 – No Identification Light
3 – No Booster Seat

Snr Supt, Brandon John notes that all 69 drivers along with their passengers were found to be in compliance with wearing their face masks, which is part of the COVID 19 regulations. He believes the particular reason for this circumstance is the consistency of the work performed by his officers to ensure that everyone complies with the Covid 19 regulations.
The Trinidad and Tobago Police Service is reminding drivers to ensure that they follow the road traffic regulations to avoid being ticketed.
