Police recover four illegal guns during spot checks
Four illegal firearms and twenty-two assorted rounds of ammunition were seized by police during spot checks conducted from January 1, 2016 to the end of March.
Police statistics indicate that during the period, 2,166 vehicles and 353 motorcycles were seized and 102,468 tickets issued.
Senior Superintendent of Police Calvin Allen has appealed to motorist to exercise caution on the road.
There have been 111 road fatalities since the start of the year compared with 105 for the corresponding period last year. Motorcyclists recorded 38, highest of all the categories of road users. Private motorcar passengers and pedestrians followed closely with 18 and 16 respectively.
“We are imploring motorists to do the right thing, stay alive and continue to drive. If you do not abide by the rules, which govern the road, you will face the full extent of the law. We must take responsibility as a nation to reduce the carnage on our streets,” Allen said.
