Motorists warned not to evade cops, 20 collisions over the weekend

The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) said that twenty motor vehicle collisions were reported over the weekend ending on November 5.

According to the RCIPS, they made four arrests while enforcing road safety, including three arrests for driving under the influence.

In some of the incidents, the police noted that motorists attempted to evade law enforcement, which potentially placed other road users at risk.

“We will continue to enforce the traffic laws for the benefit of the entire public, and those who leave the scene of an accident or attempt to evade police roadblocks and hails to stop will only compound their problems when caught,” said Inspector Yearwood, Head of the Traffic Management Unit

The driver is currently on police bail.
