From today's Royal Gazette:
All those caught on Saturday will have to go before the courts as Police can only give on-the-spot fines for motorists speeding up to 54 kph.
"The majority of these have court dates in December and January," said Chief Insp. Pedro. "The courts don't have the capacity to deal with our ability to issue tickets."
From a previous Royal Gazette:
Senior Magistrate Will Francis is calling for a change in the law to help free up congested traffic courts...
Mr. Francis claimed that while anyone who is clocked at more than 60 kph could be banned from driving and therefore has to go to court, speeders doing less than 60 kph will only be fined -- and should therefore not have to appear.
"As the law stands at the moment people don't have to appear for speeds up to 54 kph,'' he said.
"What we would like to see is that limit increased for anyone speeding up to 59 kph. We want legislators to amend the law to enable people to just pay the fine without having to come to court.
When was this latter appeal made? June 18, 1999, over ten years ago.
The uselessness of Bermuda's legislators makes you weep.
