The Land Transport Authority is calling on the public to report any mischievous behaviour by drivers on our roads.
Board Chair, Vijay Maharaj says the LTA is aware drivers are resorting to social media to alert others on the whereabouts of road enforcement officers.
There are also reports of drivers flicking lights at each other along the highway to warn drivers of nearby road patrol officers.
He says this is not allowed as it’s an offense that may land someone in prison.
“At the end of the day if a person is caught and is found flicking his lights trying to warn these drivers because of these police officers, we he can be charged for an offense. But you have to distinguish whether it’s a friend or is it that he’s telling the other driver that there’s police so there’s an offense.”
The LTA Board Chair says they will work together with the Police to introduce new ways to catch the perpetrators on the roads and penalize them.
