Thirty-Two (32) Motor Vehicle Collisions over a Three (3) Day Period

Between Monday 24 December and Thursday 27 December, there have been 32 reports of motor vehicle collisions across all three islands, with the majority of these, (approximately twenty (20)), occurring in George Town District.

Twelve (12) of these collisions were reported as serious accidents involving injury and in some cases even entrapments and vehicles being overturned. Over the three (3) day period there were also three (3) persons arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol, all of whom were involved in motor vehicle collisions.

The RCIPS would like to remind the public to stay safe by doing the following:

1. Do not to drink and drive;

2. Do not to use your cell phones whilst driving. Pull off the road when it safe to do so, to make your call or texts.

3. Ensure that you are driving within the speed limits and if we are experiencing rainy weather, adjust your speed accordingly (reduce speed by 10 miles to compensate for the slick roadway), to avoid having a collision.

4. Look out for roadblocks and traffic stops and slow down as soon as they are in your sights. Come to a complete stop when you reached the officers.

5. Be vigilant and attentive whilst driving. Don’t get distracted by passenger or electronic devices in the vehicle.

The RCIPS would like to wish you Safe and Prosperous New Year.
