Motorist Caught Speeding Twice In 30 Minutes

January 17, 2022

One motorist was clocked at 81kmph in St. Georges and 30 minutes later the same motorist was recorded doing 60kmph in Warwick, while another motorist was clocked at 103kmph and “narrowly missed hitting three officers,” the police said as they provided an update on Operation Vega checkpoints this past weekend.

The Bermuda Police Service posted the photo online below, and said, “This past weekend Operation Vega checkpoints were put in place island-wide. The most notable incident recorded over the period, involved a motorist who was clocked at 81kmph in St. Georges and 30 minutes later, the same motorist, was clocked at 60kmph in Warwick.

“Meanwhile, around 12:25am on Monday morning, while checks were being conducted in the Warwick area, a motorist failed to stop for police, after that vehicle was clocked at 103kmph. The driver of this vehicle narrowly missed hitting three officers who were already engaged in traffic stops with several other motorists.

“This type of driving behaviour is unacceptable and puts the lives of others at risk. We once again remind the public to leave your locations early enough to make it to your destination before curfew. Please drive responsibly and slow down Bermuda!”

    Just take a look at what’s going on on the streets and who’s involved.
    Is it any wonder I keep asking how it is we have such a large number of people who seem to be incapable of learning OR obeying laws ?
    Where does this mentality of ‘I’m going to do whatever I want to’ come from ?
    I know how we ended up here , does anyone else ?

    Most of us are observing this kind of thing every day. Much stricter policing of the roads would be a welcome relief to most of us.

    I grew up in the 90s and 2000s and can say speeding was FAR worse back then. You never see pack racing anymore. You dont see racing anymore. You dont even really see single people speeding fast anymore. Honestly, it is very rare. Compared to when I grew up, the roads today are far better in that regard. Anyone saying otherwise is only deluding themselves. The density of traffic has gotten worse in these years, and people in cars and trucks are irresponsible and pull out in front of bikes every day. These are some of the major issues.

      Your time on this island is far shorter than mine so your recollection is comparatively just a blink in time .
      Pack racing (as it was known) pretty much ended well before your time of awareness.
      Traffic exploded in 1993 after the then UBP passed stupid vote winning legislation to allow a second hand car market where instead of waiting a year or more after selling a car before they could have a new one people could get their new toy as soon as they got tired of their old ride. Remember , unlike now , money was plentiful then.
      While I agree with you about cars and trucks pulling out in front of bikes constantly and the amount of traffic to say ‘single people’ aren’t speeding anymore makes me wonder if you reside at Beacon House. It’s never been worse .

      Exactly. I was on the roads in the late 00s for the first time and we never raced. Its the boomers that look both ways and take 4 seconds to pull out slowly and then do 29kmh for the first km while reading a newspaper that end lives. That and drunk drivers.
