[www.inewsguyana.com] – Any tinted vehicle that travels within the boundaries of the police ‘A’ Division without the required documentation and permit from the Ministry of Home Affairs will be escorted to the nearest police station and the driver of the vehicle will have to remove the tint.
This is according to Traffic Officer in the ‘A’ Division, Ramesh Ashram during an interview with iNews today, Friday January 02.
He warned that if drivers refuse to comply then the fitness for the vehicle will be revoked, rendering the vehicle unfit to traverse the roadways.
Commander of the ‘A’ Division, Clifton Hicken told iNews that this decision was arrived at given the number of road fatalities which the country has witnessed over the holiday season.
The Commander made it clear that Police ranks and other members of the armed forces will also have to remove their tints.
He further explained that the move is part of the anti-crime strategy since there are persons of interest to the police who often use cars with tinted windows to conceal their identity and to move around the city. [Leroy Smith]
