Police enforcing amended traffic legislation

Basseterre, St. Kitts, 27th February, 2018 (MyVueNews.com) – The Traffic Department of the St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force have begun enforcing the Vehicles and Road Traffic Amended Act No. 1 of 2018.

Police are warning drivers to ensure that their driver’s license ID is with them when driving and that it is valid.

Police have indicated that a driver can face a fine of up to $250 if the driver fails to produce his/her license upon request. Driving without a valid license, or an expired driver’s license also comes with a fine of up to $250.

According to information from the Traffic Department, an officer can ask to see a license in order to ascertain the name and address of the holder of the license, as well as the date of issue of the license.

Additionally, holders of temporary driver’s licenses are now required to produce both their temporary driver’s license and their foreign driver’s license, or a valid photo identification, if it needs to be examined by a member of the Police Force. They too can face a $250 fine if they fail to comply.
