Police warned they will be out in force to tackle a surge of speeding motorists.

The Roads Policing Unit resumed speed checks in response to increased traffic on the roads between 6am and 10pm since shelter-in-place regulations were relaxed.

The highest speed recorded so far is 84km/h.

A Bermuda Police Service spokesman said: “The RPU has observed noticeably higher speeds since checks were reinstituted almost one week ago.

“Such excessive speeds pose a threat to the safety and wellbeing of not only the operators of the vehicles involved but indeed other road users, especially the increased number of individuals using the roads for exercise despite the reopening of the Railway Trail and beaches.”

The spokesman said officers would enforce all regulations governing road use.

He added: “Please work with us and exercise care, courtesy and caution as you make your commute.”
