VIPD Encourages Motorists To ‘Do The Right Thing’ And Get Street Legal … So They Don’t Have To Ticket You
CHARLOTTE AMALIE — Acting Police Commissioner Jason Marsh announced on Wednesday that he is initiating the “Do the Right Thing Vehicle Enforcement Campaign.”
Effective immediately the Virgin Islands Police Department will be increasing enforcement of all unregistered vehicles and/ or unlicensed drivers in the territory, Marsh said.
During these random checks, if the motorist has all their documents up to date which includes a valid driver’s license, the vehicle’s registration, and the vehicles insurance, the operator/ owner of said vehicle will be eligible to receive a free ticket to one of the Virgin Islands Carnival Committee’s upcoming events in the St. Thomas District.
Also included in this giveaway is free lunches/dinners from some of St. Thomas’ and St. Croix’s finest restaurants.
Marsh’s initiative began territory-wide on Monday and runs to May.
Marsh said he or his designee will present all prizes personally during those vehicle stops.
“Acting Commissioner Jason Marsh encourages everyone to “’Do the Right Thing.'” VIPD spokesman Glen Dratte said.
