400 Motorist Involed in Weekend Police Checkpoint Operation

Proactive, highly visible Bermuda Police Service (BPS) activity was carried out within the City of Hamilton from 9pm Saturday, 3rd June 2023 until 3am Sunday, 4th June 2023.

Part of the exercise saw BPS officers perform 315 F checks along Crow Lane between 9:45pm Saturday and 12:10am Sunday, under the authority outlined in the Criminal Code Amendment (No. 2) Act 2005.

As a result, there were 400 motorist engagements resulting in four arrests for outstanding warrants, four traffic tickets issued for no driver’s licence, one arrest on suspicion of possessing a controlled drug and one arrest for possession of drug equipment.

During police patrols elsewhere in the city, one motorist was arrested for care and control of a vehicle while intoxicated 2:15am Sunday, at the junction of Reid Street and Court Street.

Another motorist received an official written warning regarding their manner of driving.

The specific policing action was accomplished in addition to general patrols throughout the island during this past weekend.

Appropriate enforcement efforts will continue at various locations around the island to reduce the likelihood of violence, while deterring and tackling any traffic offences.
