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.

If your vehicle is out of compliance with any provisions of the law or you have any question as it relates to your vehicle, please contact the Bureau of Motor Vehicles  in St Croix at (340)713-4268 or visit the St Croix office at the Patrick Sweeney Police Headquarters in Golden Grove; in St Thomas at (340) 774-4268 or visit the office at 8101 Sub-Base #72; in St John (340-776-6262) or visit the St John office at the Government Complex in Cruz Bay to get back into compliance.  

Together, “Lets “Do the Right Thing!” the VIPD said.

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
