The Guyana Police Force is advising owners and drivers of vehicles to stop the practice of installing coloured lights on their vehicles or face prosecution.
This past weekend, Police on the Essequibo Coast engaged in a ‘White Light Campaign’ where a number of vehicles were stopped and examined for coloured lights resulting in eleven vehicles being detained.
The fitness certificate for all of the detained vehicles was revoked.
The Guyana Police Force is today putting all motorists on notice.
“The Guyana Police Force traffic department wishes to inform all motorists that the use of coloured headlamps, fog lamps, and rear lights on motor vehicles is in breach of the motor vehicle and road traffic regulations chapter 51:02,” the Guyana Police Force reminded in a notice this morning.
According to the Force, during the hour of darkness every vehicle shall carry two lamps each showing to the front a white light visible from a reasonable distance.
