If today’s article in the Royal Gazette is anything to go by, we sure have a group of motorists who simply won’t listen and will continue to blatantly break the law on our roads with a feeling of impunity.
As reported, out of 34 traffic tickets issued yesterday one motorist was clocked at 81km/h and another was arrested for outstanding warrants for traffic offences. While the previous day 41 road users were ticketed for speeding with one recorded at 102km/h (Yes, our speed limit is still 35 km/h!] while others were booked for driving whilst disqualified, driving unlicensed vehicles and having uninsured vehicles.
I guess nothing much has changed since most of our ExPo members were in uniform patrolling our roads, although I seem to recall that driving whilst disqualified usually resulted in mandatory jail time.
