Fatal motorcycle accident prompts police to warn against going without lights

Posted: Sunday, December 4, 2022. 5:56 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: Last week a man was killed and another injured in a motorcycle accident in the Belize River Valley.

While investigations continue into the fatal collision of Juan Cantun and Lloyd King on the Willows Bank Road, police have issued a general warning regarding motorcycle use, especially at night.

Officer Commanding the police department’s Eastern Division, Senior Superintendent Hilberto Romero, said that in recent times, the number of traffic accidents involving motorcycles has increased significantly and that many times these accidents are preventable if only the drivers adhere to the traffic laws and drive bikes that are properly outfitted.

The following are a few examples listed by the Senior Superintendent: “Sometimes we look around and see that some of this is based on reckless driving, reckless behaviour. We encourage them to follow the rules in an effort to try and minimize these accidents because we are seeing an increase of fatal RTA’s involving motorcycles. We have our highway patrols, and we also have our checkpoints but again we cannot be everywhere so when it is identified and found then we deal with it but again we encourage the drivers to ensure that their motorcycles have on good lights and reflectors and that they respect the traffic laws.”
