Guam - The Guam Police Department's Highway Patrol Division is revving up their efforts to prevent drinking and driving, as officers today were stationed along Route 3 in Dededo heading to NCTAMS, pulling over dozens of motorists for speeding. GPD Sergeant Mike Aguon says its part of the ongoing holiday efforts to ensure that there are no more traffic deaths.
"We're basically here to get people to slow down and make them realize that the posted 45mph is gone, its now 35mph throughout the island so there's no more 45 a lot of people are stunned by that," he said.
Aguon recalls at least 7 recent traffic fatalities on this stretch of road alone. He adds that they booked and confined more than 30 people in the past couple of weeks, while conducting the checkpoints.
