BPS Operation Vega Campaign Continue With Success

As “Operation Vega” continues, 341 Moving Violation Tickets were issued over the last two weeks. That’s twelve fewer than the 353 issued during the previous 2 weeks.

Chief Inspector Robert Cardwell of the Bermuda Police Service, (BPS), Tactical Support Unit said, “Operation Vega remains a critical incident. “We will continue to lawfully perform our duty to calm and slow things down on the roads with effective enforcement.

Since the deployment of Op Vega six months ago, 4893 moving violation tickets have been issued. Motorists were ticketed for speeds ranging from 55KMPH, to 102KMPH.”

Chief Inspector Cardwell reminded, “The target offences continue to be:

• Driving without due care and attention
• Helmet offence – not fastened
• Disobeying a traffic sign
• Cell phone offence
• Speeding
• Unlicensed and Uninsured vehicle
• Failure to fasten seatbelt
• Driving without reasonable consideration (failure to use indicators).

Please be aware that not using an indicator does not create an absolute offence. The failure to use an indicator must cause someone else to do or not to do something and this must be included in the evidence. An example might be a driver failed to use an indicator which caused a vehicle at the same junction not to move on.”
