Police: give yourselves time to make curfew
Police today reminded motorists and boaters to give themselves “ample travel time” to return home before curfew starts.
A police spokesman added that people should not break the speed limit to get ahead of curfew because it could be dangerous for themselves or others around them.
The spokesman said: “As a reminder, the current curfew is in effect from 11pm to 5am on land, with the boating curfew from 8pm to 5am.
“We all have a role to play in stopping the spread of the novel coronavirus disease and members of the public abiding by the curfew regulations will help to limit the latest outbreak of Covid-19.
“As such, the BPS remains committed to its role of appropriate enforcement regarding curfew breaches.”
Police reminded the public that those caught out and about during curfew will be stopped and questioned about whether or not they are exempt under the current Government regulations.
Those who are not exempt will be reported for violating safety regulations and summonsed to appear in court.
Those who are unsure whether or not they are exempt, or wish to apply for an exemption letter, can do so here.
