The Public Safety and Traffic Enforcement Branch (P-STEB) says it’s already noticing a transition in the behaviour of motorists since its officers have started to maintain a presence on the streets.
P-STEB was launched in August in a bid to increase public order, especially amid several road projects across the Corporate Area, which causes severe traffic pile-ups.
Deputy Superintendent Winchester Watson is the Commanding Officer for the Traffic Enforcement Division at P-STEB.
But he says several motorists are still breaching the traffic legislation. And he says pedestrians are also engaging in reckless activities.
It’s why he says his officers are maintaining their enforcement drives, especially during the busy Christmas season. He says P-STEB will also be addressing the high level of lawlessness in the downtown Kingston shopping district.
