RCIPS and CIFS Reinforce Road Safety Message
The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) and the Cayman Islands Fire Service (CIFS) reminds residents to stay safe on the roads during these unprecedented times.
Commenting on the situation, Chief Fire Officer, Paul Walker QFSM said, “CIFS colleagues have witnessed and received reports of drivers far exceeding speed limits as a result of less traffic, drivers continue to use their mobile phone while driving and reports of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.”
He continued, “This is concerning as it is these types of behaviours that can lead to road traffic collisions, which we hope to avoid. We are calling on the public to be mindful of this at this time.“
Inspector Dwayne Jones of the RCIPS Traffic & Roads Policing Unit, echoed Chief Fire Officer Walker’s sentiments and added “The Traffic & Roads Policing Unit continues to prosecute anyone found engaging in this behavior. The penalties include fines for speeding or mobile phone use, and the loss of driving privileges for a minimum of a year if found guilty of a DUI.”
