No Roadside Sobriety Checkpoints This Weekend

Tue, 2018-09-11

Acting Deputy Commissioner of Police Martin Weekes – The Bermuda Police Service (BPS) advises that due to an administrative error by the BPS, regarding the publication of the road sobriety checkpoint notice, the road sobriety checkpoints specified in that notice will not be conducted this weekend.

The public will note that an Official Gazette Notice was featured yesterday (September 10th) and today (September 11th) advising that road sobriety checkpoints would be conducted in Paget and Devonshire on September 14th, 15th, and 16th. However due to this error in the Notice these checkpoints will not take place.

I would like to reiterate the message that the BPS will continue to actively address drinking and driving on the roads this weekend using existing legislation.
