274 traffic offences recorded on Sunday – Guyana Times
In a rigorous traffic enforcement operation conducted on Sunday, the Guyana Police Force (GPF) recorded a whopping 274 cases against errant drivers countrywide. Among these cases, the majority were related to speeding, while a few individuals were apprehended for driving under the influence (DUI).
Speeding remains a major concern on the city’s roads, with 65 cases reported on Sunday alone. Drivers exceeding the designated speed limits not only put their lives at risk but also endanger the lives of others on the road. Law enforcement officers utilised speed detection devices to identify and pull over drivers
The traffic enforcement operations are part of a campaign to instil a sense of discipline among drivers and make roads safer for all users. By cracking down on offenders and issuing appropriate penalties, the Police hope to send a strong message that traffic violations will not be tolerated.
Since July, “Respect the Road” was initiated, in a desperate move to reduce accidents after a rise in fatalities and reckless use of the roadways.
