Police warns motorcyclists to desist from wearing masks
Police have urged motorcyclists to desist from wearing face wraps, warning that the practice is illegal.
In a statement issued this evening, police expressed concern that a growing number of persons are wearing the wraps, which carry various designs such as the image of a skull.
Police pointed out that Section 37 (b) of the Highway Act “clearly states that it shall not be lawful for any person to appear masked or otherwise disguised on any highway or in a public place except in accordance with the terms of a permit granted by the Commissioner of Police.”
Law enforcers have also warned the owners of motor vehicles that tinted windows must not “make the driver of a vehicle unidentifiable from a reasonable distance by a person outside of a vehicle,” as outlined in Section 27 (b) of the Road Traffic Act.
