Police charged 11 persons for driving under the influence following the Experience fete at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy last Saturday.

They also issued 35 fixed penalty tickets worth 35,000 dollars to motorists for speed-related offences.

In light of the 10 fatal road traffic accidents already recorded for the year so far, and in recognition of the ongoing carnival season, the police commissioner has mandated increased anti-drunk driving, speed control and general traffic enforcement exercises nationwide.

The police service is asking the public to obey road safety regulations and to ensure that they have all valid driving documents on their person and vehicle in anticipation of these checks.
