READ OUT LOUD!
(CMR) Officers from the West Bay Police Station, Community Policing Unit, and Traffic Roads Policing Unit have been carrying out increased traffic enforcement operations in the West Bay District in response to growing community concerns about speeding and unsafe driving practices.
“This operation is not just one of enforcement but also for our officers to gathering information on how to make the communities and roadways in West Bay safer to traverse and live,” Inspector Lloyd Marriott, District Commander of the West Bay Police Station said
“Our goal is to continue working with and for our communities towards making Cayman safer, and this operation was developed because we listened to the community’s concerns and acted accordingly. The West Bay District can look out for similar projects to be carried out with the assistance of our partners, both internally and externally,” he added.
The operation, which began on February 7 and continued throughout that week, saw officers over the period issuing over 80 tickets to drivers within the district. Of those, 49 tickets were issued for speeding, and 15 were for failing to comply with traffic signs/signals.
The RCIPS urges the public to be vigilant and attentive when driving on the roadways, especially during school zones.
Acting Superintendent Brad Ebanks stated, “As we continue our efforts to keep our roads safe to travel, we encourage all road users to do their parts as well.”
