Police stepping up presence on roads in safety push

Police will be out in force over the festive period as part of an islandwide campaign to prevent road accidents.

The stepped-up measures start on Wednesday and will run through to January 6, inclusive, the police said in an announcement on Tuesday.

“The presence of police officers, mainly on motorways and main roads where traffic will be increased will be particularly evident from tomorrow, Wednesday, December 23 until January 6,” the announcement said.

Mobilisation of police on the road network is necessary this period as there is a higher number of serious and fatal traffic collisions, it added.

Police cautioned drivers to be particularly careful about traffic violations for which there will be zero tolerance.

These it listed as: drunk driving, speeding, not wearing a seatbelt, not wearing a helmet, reckless, dangerous or negligent driving, making a prohibited right turn, jumping the lights, driving against the flow of traffic, using a mobile phone while driving, reckless overtaking and not giving priority to pedestrians on pedestrian crossings.
