Scooter rider racks up several charges after trying to evade police
A local scooter rider racked up several charges recently after trying to evade the police while traversing Norman Fowler Drive on Tortola recently.
Sources told our news centre that the police were conducting a stop-and-search operation on the thoroughfare when the rider was seen on his scooter without a helmet.
It is reported that when the police signalled to him to stop, the rider manuvered his scooter into nearby bushes. The police, however, gave chase and apprehended the motorist.
BVI News understands that the rider was subsequently charged with Failing to Stop Vehicle at Request of a Police Officer, Driving Without a Crash Helmet, Driving Without a Driver’s License, Driving an Unlicensed Vehicle, Driving an Uninsured Vehicle, and Driving Without a front and a rear Identification Plate.
Our news centre has not yet been able to verify the identity of the accused traffic offender. He is scheduled to appear before the Magistrate’s Court at a later time.
