PARLIAMENT MET TO REINTRODUCE TINTING OF VEHICLES AT A COST; APPROVE PERSONALIZED NUMBER PLATES; AND MAKE AMENDMENTS TO VEHICULAR ORDINANCE.
This rash incompetent behaviour by a visionless brain-dead so-called government on Anguilla yet demonstrates why the British government needs to take a more hands on approach in administering certainty and prudence, if serious about the well-being of life on Anguilla.
British experts concluded that light transmitted through the vehicle windscreens must be at least 75%. Front side windows (to either side of the drivers’ head) must allow at least 70% of light to be transmitted through them - to be legal on its roads.
Whilst I don’t support a total ban on tinting, measures to limit the impact of irresponsible vehicular tinting on Anguilla must be maintained in line with similar regulations in the United Kingdom. This includes equipping our police force with the necessary equipment and use thereof, to enforce necessary legislation established.
We must never be put in a situation of choosing to raise revenue over our internal security, especially by a set of unlearned idiots. The question is, where is our Commissioner of Police at a time when we need him most?
Anguilla is in dire need of a Top Cop!
How about addressing our irresponsible drinking; strict liability for the sale of alcoholic beverages to minors; giving police the necessary powers to enforce breathalyser testing on Anguilla; criminalisation to the further serving of alcoholic beverage to an intoxicated person; vehicular seatbelt requirement; and the no usage of mobile phones and other hand held devices while driving a vehicle. There is a lot of revenue uncollected there…
Tinting might look great - and you may get away with it - in the same way that there are plenty of motorists with illegal exhausts, lighting, sounds and other outfits - but health and safety must be a government first responsibility to its citizenry. Excessive tinting is a high security risk, and must not be tolerated in any civilised society.
Anguilla's taxpayers must not underwrite the lack of vision or incompetence by our authorities.
