1

The Antigua & Barbuda Road Safety Group is celebrating 6 months of ZERO fatalities.

It was aiming for zero fatalities for 2018 but that target was broken with the country’s first fatality in March.

There has only been road fatality so far for 2018.

President Alice Ho-Tack said a number of factors have contributed to this success, including raising awareness, the increase in enforcement and road safety education.

“We would like to thank all stakeholders and road users for the outstanding work in keeping the figure at zero,” she said.

“Our vision continues for the next five months of the year, with an effort to keep the figure standing by taking it one month at a time,” Ho-Tack said in a statement.

She said It will be a challenging time in the middle of the carnival celebrations and reminds the public to avoid driving under the influence, use a designated driver or utilized the taxi service to get home safe, stay clear of music trucks and high tension wires in the city.

The group continues to lobby the government for the formation of a road safety council, a memorial site for victims and families and to update our laws and legislations before the year 2020

Road deaths are considered needless deaths and can be prevented.
