Government of Belize and Caribbean Development Bank review Road Safety Project

Monday, November 30th, 2015. BMG: A press release issued by the Government of Belize and Caribbean Development Bank (CDB), served as a year’s review on the Belize Road Safety Project.road safety

The project began in 2013 after GOB received a US $7,248,000 loan from the CDB to help finance initiatives that have since contributed to a reduction in the frequency and severity of road traffic deaths, as well as injuries on the George Price Highway.

The project’s goal for this year was to see a 20 percent reduction in the frequency and severity of traffic collisions. Those results were released and are currently being discussed in a meeting at the Belize Best Western Biltmore Plaza in Belize City, which began at 9:00 a.m. and featured speakers from the Ministry of Works, Ministry of Transport and the National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO), among others.

The release ends by stating: “We need to continue the ongoing ‘battle’ to prevent needless death through drinking and driving, speeding, texting and driving, overtaking on curves, overtaking on double solid lines or unsafe places or not wearing seat-belts or helmets or adequate protective gears to shield the brain.”
