St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN): Have you noticed an increase in the number of Traffic Officers, along the west side of the island, in the Old Road, Boyds, and West Farm areas, equipped with speed radars?

In an invited comment about speeding and dangerous driving on the western side of the island, Police Superintendent Cromwell Henry said the officers are out to target drivers who flout the traffic regulations specifically aimed to target speeding offenses.

“For now we are having officers at strategic times in strategic places who are doing speed enforcement,” Henry explained.

Superintendent Henry also disclosed that officials are moving to acquire and install stationary radar equipment that would capture speeding on the road.

“We are now in the process of working on new technology, a photo radar where we would have a permanently mounted photo radar that would capture speed and a photo of the vehicle and send that date back to a monitoring center where we would be able to once legislation [is] appropriately amended to send fines, tickets to persons who were captured.”
