Police out of traffic tickets

Police out of traffic tickets

Saint Lucia police are out of traffic tickets, a situation which a local official who spoke to the Times on condition of anonymity has described as ‘ridiculous.’

According to information obtained by the Times, the traffic tickets that were previously used by the Police Traffic Department were found to have contained an anomaly.

As a result, the use of the old tickets was discontinued, a reliable source explained.

According to the source, Traffic Police officers have now been unable to issue tickets for more than three months while they await the new tickets.

“The hold up might probably be that something is sitting on someone’s desk waiting to be signed,” one source told the Times.

It was explained that without the tickets, officers cannot ticket persons for certain traffic violations.

“So they are just out there, walking up and down and can’t do their jobs,” an official said.

It was explained that the situation has implications for road safety and government revenue at a time when the current administration has asserted that this country is broke.

      You jackass. They had tickets but they had a problem. Were these ticket purchased under SLP? Does it matter who purchased these ticke? No. Thinking like you I could say that the document is lying on the desk of an old Labar supporter in the RSLPF to create problems.

      Because it tells me where my tax $$ is not being spent- in the RSLPF. Bravo to the big tourism investments, bravo to buying the Daher Mall, Bravo to Boxing in Paradise, Bravo for le Paradis and check the state of our country.
      The things that really really affect us, the common Lucian are ignored the most!

      Hope this is a delayed April fool’s joke!

    Every thing for us is politics, you people are a bunch of idiots with no life and as long as you keep playing politics we ain’t going anywhere as a country. This is a big problem for us because people who has no respect for the law will pack anywhere, which then leads to accidents, traffic jams, and road rage.😖 Didn’t think about that did you??? And that someone may just be you. My advice put politics aside and unite for the betterment​ of the country.

    This country is full of ignorant idiots that cannot leave politics where it belongs, in the political a season. They will find all the reasons in the world to blame chastnet for every little thing after being in office for less than a year. Kenny Anthony was there for about three terms and those hat like him didn’t want to hear anyone blame him . What we are facing now is the actions of the last administration.(Words deleted)

    Seems some people go ballistic about everything being politics when the party/government they support is the one being criticized. If it’s the other side being castigated it become fair, balanced and objective comment. I wonder which is worse, politicizing issues or being a duplicitous hypocrite?

    The document is in a ministry awaiting a minister’s signature. This has nothing to do with the police.
    But they, the police, have the option of arresting or issuing summons for traffic violations. But think of what would happen to the court system if we have to be arrested for most traffic violations- no cops on the streets and a further bugged down judicial system. So Mr. Official sign the document so the popo can keep our streets safe.

      You prick. Go live in the US where there are perfect and efficient police who will kill you black arse just like those in Saint Lucia.

      We have good officers. I have never been afraid of being shot and killed by a traffic cop in Saint Lucia. But this might just be your fate in the US or whatever so-called first world country you are in.

    Traffic tickets were last issued in November 2016. The roads free up. So fellow motorists have fun and drive as you wish. No police on your backs. This is what the transport minister wants.
