129 Drivers Booked For Speeding In 24 Hours

From 6am Saturday morning to 6am this morning, 129 drivers were booked for speeding.

The Western Division recorded the highest number of bookings with 83 reports.

The Southern Division recorded 24 bookings, 15 in the North and 7 in the East.

Seatbelts are proven to prevent injury or death in a motor vehicle accident, however it is worrying that traffic officers continue to book people for failing to wear a seatbelt.

Forty-one people bookings were recorded, and again the Western Division had the highest number of bookings with 38 reports, 2 in the Southern Division and 1 in the Northern Division.

The worrying trend of drunk driving continues, as 6 drivers were arrested during the 24-hour reporting period.

The Western, Southern and Eastern Divisions all recorded 2 cases each.

We will continue to issue road safety advice because accidents are preventable if everyone plays their part in complying to traffic laws.
