January 26, 2022 | 3 Comments

Operation Vega — which started on July 1st, 2021 — “did not begin impacting collision statistics until the 4th quarter of 2021, when collisions were down by almost 100,” Chief Inspector Robert Cardwell said today.

Chief Inspector Robert Cardwell said, “Based on these figures Operation Vega did not begin impacting collision statistics until the 4th quarter of 2021, when collisions were down by almost 100, compared with the same period in 2018, 2019 and 2020.

“It was not expected that Operation Vega on its own would dramatically reduce the number of collisions, since enforcement would not necessarily have such an impact. This is also the case in other jurisdictions.

“Public awareness and education are what create this desired effect. The reduction in the number of collisions in 4th quarter 2021 may be attributed to heightened public awareness, as a result a continued heightened use of social media to get our message out about our Operation Vega efforts.”

    When will we get serious with this absolute defying of our traffic laws . 40 mph would have gotten you 3 years off the road…. today a slap on the wrist and a fine and we are surprised we have so many deaths and lets not forget all those who are seriously hurt – dismembered – paralysed dis figured and half of these are people who are following the rules but are struck by someone who didnt care
    you cant say you are reacting to this unless penalties triple and licenses revoked
    Get Real where is this so called responsible Government

      What traffic laws? Our Road Traffic Act is really a set of Road Traffic Suggestions. People do not stop a traffic lights, forget about stop signs. It will take a lot more than one cop on traffic duty to change things in Bermuda

    While I applaud the efforts of the BPS I believe this drop in collisions is more due to reduced traffic from September and December COVID waves. I noticed the reduced traffic as work from home remote schooling and increased level of quarantines were taking place.
