Push Being Made To Reduce The Number Of Reckless Drivers On The Roads Of SVG

The Traffic Branch of the Royal St. Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force has expressed concern about the spate of recklessness exhibited by motorists on our roads in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

A release from the Police Public Relations Department says incidents of reckless driving have become too prevalent among minibus operators and other drivers.

The police are therefore alerting the general public that an operation to address and minimize these acts will be launched soon, throughout the state.

The release says Motorists, who are committing such acts, will be severely prosecuted in keeping with the Motor Vehicle and Road Traffic Act, with disqualifications imposed where applicable.

Other areas which will be given attention include the playing of loud music and transporting of excess passengers.

The police are reminding the traveling public that road safety is not the concern and responsibility of the police only, but requires the commitment of all road users.
