An eye-witness whose car was left damaged after a Department of Vehicle and Drivers’ License (DVDL) inspector knocked down a street pole using a private vehicle, says she understands the test drive may have been legal, but she thinks the system should be changed.
Meloney Syms says the DVDL should test vehicles on areas that don’t put the safety of the general public at risk.
She told Cayman 27, “If you want to test it out in the realm of your job, there are marked out places for them to take vehicles and test them. I’m sure about that, because they take you there to do your tests.” She added “Take it on an abandoned road or somewhere else, but not on a road full of traffic. Take it in an empty lot where you will not endanger the lives of others.”
The DVDL told Cayman 27 the employee has been placed on sick leave and an internal investigation is underway.
