The Guyana Police Force is clamping down on the use of illegal coloured lights on vehicles.
During a two-hour campaign on Thursday, which began at sundown, the Police stopped and escorted several drivers to Traffic Headquarters, Eve-Leary.
They were found to be in breach of 34 (1) (a) of the Motor Vehicles and Road Traffic Regulations which speaks to illumination.
This regulation states that: “Every motor vehicle…during the hours of darkness shall carry two lamps, each showing to the front a white light visible from a reasonable distance.”
The exercise in Region Four was spearheaded by Deputy Traffic Chief, Deputy Superintendent Joseph Jack with the assistance of Traffic Education Officer Inspector Raun Clarke and 30 other police ranks.
Additionally, similar exercises were carried out in Regional Divisions # 2 and 7. In Region 2, the exercise was spearheaded by Inspector T. Griffith while in Region 7 it was spearheaded by Inspector C. Hooke.
