Police Ticket Person Driving Go-Kart On Street

April 16, 2018

The Police Roads Policing Unit [RPU] posted a video of someone driving a go-kart on the street, and later confirmed they caught up with the individual and issued tickets.

The police tweeted the video below, saying, “Unacceptable!! RPU commencing inquiries to identify offender. If you have any information please contact us on 247-1076.”

In a follow up tweet, the police posted the photo below and said, “RPU catches up with go-kart being driven on the road! Tickets issued.”

They subsequently noted, “His excuse was he had no other trans and no money for bus fare. He had to be at a meeting.”


The island does have a proper go-kart racing organisation where scheduled races take place on a track, and the club moved to confirm they do not condone this, and pointed out the person was not a member of their club.

BKC President Scott Barnes posted on social media saying, “It’s been brought to my attention that someone was taking a joy ride today in a Go-kart on the roads.

“This is not something the Bermuda Karting Club condones and we have just found out that it was not a member of the BKC as they have been caught. Our rule book does not allow for any karts on main roads [except for a permitted race event].

“Anyone interested in racing with the Bermuda Karting Club are welcomed to come check us out down at Rubis SouthSide Raceway in St David’s.”

    Overlooking the fact that it was an ‘unlicensed and uninsured’ vehicle it was kind of funny.
    Until the stupid fool overtook in the place that he did .

    This guy had no fear for sure of authority or law, not to mention public safety.This attitude is dangerous indeed and reminds me of the early stages of our gang situation we never properly addressed. If we allow this behavior to go unpunished the right way then Bermuda you will open Pandoras Box again.We have to do better than a ticket this is another avenue of the lawless to give the middle finger to us one more time.

    The children will be running the house and law abiding neighbors will be pulling out of what was once a nice area to live in.

      Well it is funny how the video of the drunk guy weaving all over the road drunk before falling over at the entrance to Fairylands never made it to the news, instead people scolded the camera man, or the cctv footage of the cops driving down the wrong way on Church Street on their way to a bar where responding officers found them and did nothing. I remember seeing a scrambler on the road 40 years ago, pandoras box must open in ultra slow-mo. Stop fear mongering or at least address a real problem.

        Most ‘accidents’ don’t get reported nowadays anyway including the types where Fairylands has nothing to do with amything .

        I’ve had at least 8 accidents outside my gate in the last 3 years where people have tried to hide their vehicles (cars included) and one guy was obviously high as a kite . None of them made the news and I’m nowhere near any Fairylands type of area.

    Hope he has to sell go-kart to pay the tickets. Maybe enough left over for bus fare.

    Feel like everyone’s making such a big deal out of this, when they’re are real problems that need too be addressed. What’s the difference between this and the guys that ride their scramblers on the road or those who ride unlicensed/uninsured vehicles on the road….

    • PBanks says:

      None, except that the go kart fella was filmed in the act. If people have footage or other knowledge on when and where the people driving scramblers, etc. on public road, call the police.

      • sage says:

        Call the police and ask what they did with their cohorts filmed by cctv in the incident I mentioned above.
