Police to step up traffic laws enforcement from tomorrow

From tomorrow, members of the Guyana Police Force will commence a massive drive to ensure that all motorists, including those in the public transportation system, obey the traffic laws.

According to a press release issued yesterday, the police will be intensifying operations in the enforcement of the laws in relation to the non-playing of music in public transportation vehicles while on a journey or parked on the roadway; the non-use of hand-held mobile phones while driving motor vehicles; the placing of markings/ drawings on minibuses in contravention of the road service licence; and the fraudulent imitating of identification marks on motor vehicles (number plates) or certificate of registration.

Minibus drivers had been given until today to remove all markings from vehicles being used for public transportation or face prosecution.

The press release was issued as a notification to the general public.
