The Royal Grenada Police Force hereby notifies the motoring public that regular Radar Speed Checks will be conducted at various points throughout the island. This has become necessary as a result of numerous complaints received from citizens, and also, as a growing concern for the RGPF regarding speeding on our nation’s road.
Motorists are therefore reminded that the speed limit within the town is 20 miles per hour for all classes of vehicles, while out of town is 40 miles per hour for P Class and 35 miles per hour for T, H and SL classes.
According to Section 58 (1) of Chapter 1 of Volume 1 of the 1994 Continuous Revised Laws of Grenada: A person who drives a motor vehicle of a class or description specified in the Fourth Schedule at a speed greater than the speed specified in the Fourth Schedule or in an Order made under section 59 subsection (1) as being the maximum speed for a vehicle of that class or description on the road on which it is being driven, commits an offence and shall be liable on summary conviction to a fine of one thousand dollars or to imprisonment for twelve months or to both such fine and imprisonment.
Recently, speed checks were conducted in the Calivigny area where five tickets were issued to drivers for excessive speeding.
The Royal Grenada Police Force is therefore seeking the cooperation of Motorists to adhere to our laws and, also advises drivers to be extremely cautious when utilising our roadways.
Drivers, “Kill your speed; speed kills.”
Office of the Commissioner of Police
