Police warn drivers over coloured lights

The Guyana Police Force is advising owners and drivers of vehicles to stop the practice of installing coloured lights on their vehicles or face prosecution.

In a press release on Wednesday, the police said that they have observed that owners and drivers of vehicles are affixing coloured blue and green lights in front of their vehicles, which is illegal and should cease immediately.

“Regulation 34 (1) (A) of the Motor Vehicles and Road Traffic Act, Chapter 51:02 states ‘every motor vehicle, the width of which does not exceed seven feet, other than a two-wheeled motorcycle not having a side car attached thereto and an invalid carriage, on any road, during the hours of darkness shall carry two lamps, each showing to the front a white light visible from a reasonable distance’”, the statement said.

It further added that the Traffic Department of the Force wishes to advise owners and drivers who are guilty of the illegal practice to desist or face the consequences of being prosecuted.
