Following new curfew orders, Premier of the Virgin Islands, Andrew Fahie announced that bikers will not be permitted to ride between the hours of 5pm and 5am daily.
The Premier said this aligns with Government’s intention to ensure the safety of bikers across the territory.

Within a detailed address, Premier Fahie said “Cabinet approved the making of Regulation by the Minister in accordance Road Traffic Act, (CAP. 218), Section 56 to restrict the movement of three-wheel or less vehicles, which includes motorbikes and scooters, from 5:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. for the safety and convenience of the public, for a period that will not exceed three (3) weeks.”

The Premier further stated that the Minister of Transportation, Works and Utilities, Honorable Kye Rymer will soon advise the Attorney General as it relates to the drafting of the required Regulation.

A number of residents have expressed concerns about some local motorists, including bikers, who they accuse of constantly breaking the territory’s road laws while traversing the roadways.
