On 2 September, the Royal Bahamas Police Force announced that they had some new equipment in the form of a laser camera to judge speeds. Since that time, they have been on the roads with a vengeance. Of course, speed is an issue on our roads as we are finding out with one traffic accident after the next taking the lives of people. Thus far 56 this year. What a shame. Problem is no one believes a word of it about concern for road safety. The public believes that this is all about the Government desperate for money, not saving lives. So each day on the What’s App chat groups you find messages being sent around that the police are out and to slow down. One lady said that she was going three miles over the speed limit of 25 miles per hour and she was given a ticket. The Treasury is obviously in need of money.
