We are used to seeing the Traffic Wardens set up traffic checkpoints along different streets on the island, surprising unsuspecting motorists who do not have their driver’s license or have their insurance expired! Yes it comes as an inconvenience, at times, but it’s their job to keep us in line.
To the surprise of others, the Traffic Wardens were joined yesterday, Wednesday, July 27, 2011, by the Immigration Department that was conducting documentation checks on visitors and immigrants. It was part of their random and routine check-ups that they conduct on the island to assure foreigners have the proper documentations.
They check for ID’s, passports, legal documents and keep an eye on for foreigners and suspicious characters. Those who cannot provide proper proof or reasonable identification are taken to the Immigration Office from further interrogation.
