By Rubén Morales Iglesias: With the objective of curbing the high number of road traffic accidents, representatives of the Ministries of Transport and Health, municipal traffic departments, and Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) completed a Defensive Driving Training course.
The Government of Belize Press Office said 27 persons completed the four-day course on Friday, January 21, 2022. The course was done through the partnership of Belize’s Second Road Safety Project, the Ministry of Economic Development, and the Belize Institute of Management with financial support from the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB).
The CDB assisted the Government of Belize (GOB) with loan financing towards the cost of Belize’s Second Road Safety Project in 2019.
The Press Office said GOB is “committed to providing drivers with the skills and knowledge they should have to demonstrate good and safe driving practices”. With that in mind, the course which included virtual theory and driving tests had the objective of improving “road user behavior to reduce road crashes and the resulting injuries and deaths”.
“Therefore, the Defensive Driving Training aims to build the capacity of drivers by curbing reckless behaviours and striving to create an environment of teamwork when using the road system so that all road users feel safe. International good practice suggests that anyone driving should undergo a basic Defensive Driving Course and First Responders Training,” said the Press Office press release.
