Head of the Police Traffic Division, Senior Superintendent Calvin Allen, made the disclosure while addressing a JIS Think Tank on December 2.

He said that of the total number of tickets issued, 130,000 were for excessive speeding which, he said, has been a leading factor in fatal road crashes over the last two years.

Excessive speeding has accounted for 25 per cent of road deaths since the start of the year.  “It has accounted for 74 of the 289 …lives that have been lost on the nation’s streets to date,” he informed.
