That was how police public relations officer, Acting Inspector Rodney Inniss, described motorists being reported for making the illegal right turn onto Highway X from The Glebe in St George, following temporary traffic changes last Wednesday.

With regards to a video making the rounds on social media of two officers reporting motorists making the now illegal turn, Inniss said he did not know when the changes occurred because he was not informed.

“I saw the video and the point should be made that police officers should be allowed to enforce the laws. We also do educational programmes so if people don’t know, we have a way of informing them [about what] they should know. It is not our remit to deal with things like that. We have no control over that; that was strictly MTW [Ministry of Transport, Works and Maintenance],” he stressed.

“It would appear as if police were there deliberately for that. That is because of the changes coinciding with the police doing their job, but the police were other places as well. The point is well made, but we will want to reassure the public that we are there to help with MTW to do proper law enforcement and safety on the road. We would not deliberately set out to put people before the court with new measures like that,” he maintained.
