Government responds to the recent rash of road crashes: ‘Slow down!’

Posted: Tuesday, July 5, 2022. 3:03 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: The Second Road Safety Project, which extends the first funded by the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB), has issued notice of the recent high number of traffic fatalities in recent days.

Four persons died in four separate accidents over the weekend across three districts, while a fifth was gravely injured earlier this morning in the Cayo District.

To meet a national commitment to reducing the number of major traffic crashes and fatalities by half by the year 2030, as committed last month, there are efforts to improve road conditions countrywide, educate the public on road safety, build the capacity of traffic enforcement personnel and create new and amend previous traffic laws.

The public must also play their part, the Project says, by obeying traffic laws, rules, and regulations: “We appeal to drivers to slow down, drive responsibly, do not drive intoxicated, and ensure their motor vehicle is in full compliance with the vehicle inspection requirements. We also urge the traffic enforcement agencies to be more visible on our highways.”
