By Aaron Humes: This month has seen the increased loss of life due to traffic accidents along the highways and byways. There were three fatal incidents alone over the weekend.

In Belmopan on Monday, Commissioner of Police Chester Williams met with the senior command of the Belize Police Department to address the issue.

The Commissioner said the Department would look at reorganizing its strategy for dealing with accidents but insisted that motorists must take the laws more seriously: “…no matter what we do as a department, we will not be able to stop these accidents if the motorists do not play their role. Motorists, drivers need to learn to be more careful in the use of the highway and we must have due consideration for other road users.”

He cited improper overtaking by motorcycles in particular as well some of the other usual causes of accidents – speeding, worn-out vehicle parts, intoxication.”

Police will establish their presence on the roads, added Williams: “So we will be doing a sensitization campaign, utilizing highway patrols, random checkpoints in different parts of the highways and we will also be partnering with national traffic to see if they can join us on this campaign. Like I said, it must be addressed.”

Additionally, Williams has directed that each formation’s Highway Patrol – North, East, South, and West – work their jurisdictions as it relates to accidents and transport issues and link up with each other as needed.
