Crackdown On Central Motorists

Sunday, January 15, 2012

A police crackdown on delinquent drivers in central Trinidad on Friday afternoon resulted in the issuing of more than 250 fixed penalty tickets within three hours. The exercise which was headed by Senior Supt Edward Castillo began at around 1 pm and was conducted in Cunupia, Longdenville, Enterprise and the Chaguanas areas. During the exercise tickets were issued for various offenses including drivers with no permits or insurance, faulty lights and number plates. Scores of drivers were also ordered by police to strip illegal tints off their vehicles.

Police said it was part of their zero tolerance approach to traffic offenses on the nation’s roadways which contribute to the high road fatality rate. Police said similar exercises will be conducted more regularly in the future. Two men were also arrested on outstanding warrants, while one was arrested for drunk driving. The exercise included Superintendent Johnny Abraham and Inspectors Wayne Lawrence and Nazroodeen Pragg, all of the Central Division CID.
