Grace over for Brac drivers

| 04/12/2008

(CNS): Despite the continued difficulties for those living on Cayman Brac, the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) says the grace period for unlicenced vehicles has expired and all drivers need to get coupons for unlicensed vehicles to avoid running foul of local officers.

Police officers on the Sister Islands said they are now prosecuting offenders for unlicenced vehicles. “In the aftermath of Hurricane Paloma we had a grace period to the end of November for drivers who were unable to licence their vehicles,” said Acting Sergeant Ashton Ferguson. “We are now strictly enforcing the Traffic Law and expect vehicle owners to have their licence and insurance up to date.”

The Licencing Department is operating from the parking lot of the District Administration Building on Mondays to Fridays between 9:00am and 12:00 noon. The Treasury Department, where all fees are to be paid, is also open daily at the Administration Building from 9:00am to 3:00pm.

Anyone with information about crime taking place in the Cayman Islands should contact their local police station or Crime Stoppers on 800-8477 (TIPS). All persons calling crime stoppers remain anonymous, and are eligible for a reward of up to $1000, should their information lead to an arrest or recovery of property/drugs.
