More police patrols, traffic cameras and speed guns to help reduce crashes

4

CABINET NOTES:

The Cabinet took the decision to install traffic cameras.

The Cabinet continues to take note of the number of vehicular accidents on recently resurfaced roads, particularly Friars Hill Road and Sir George Walter Highway.

Motorists are encouraged to abide by the rules of the road and to exercise due care and caution when using the roadways.

There will be increased police patrols on the roadways and the use of speed guns has already been deployed at strategic points throughout the island in an effort to bring to justice those motorists who are intent on causing mayhem on the roadways.

The Ministry of Transport and the police will collaborate to ensure the success of this strategy.

  1. DO THESE PEOPLE BUY THEIR LICENSE?? Omg for the life of me I really cannot understand, how these people manage to get in all these crazy accidents, it’s really sicken now. It’s almost like it’s a death wish being a pedestrian on the road. ABTB NEED TO BE MORE STRICT IN GIVING THESE PEOPLE THEIR LICENSES AND ALSO THE POLICE NEED TO PATROL THE ROADS!!

    • Politicians give them license to bribe dem for votes.

      When they get ketch, fine them heavily, ban dem from driving 3 years and make the insurance company raise up their premiums. Next time 5 year ban then 10 year then permanent ban. And all the time their insurance premium get raise up.

  2. We need to install more speed humps, lumps and bumps. The accident ratio is way, way too high for a country with a population of around 100,000

    If drivers do not heed the government’s public warnings, then drastic and draconian measures need to be brought in … if you can’t hear, drivers must now feel the weight of the law – LONG OVERDUE!

  3. Smh…them nar stop till them kill off themselves. There is this male driver for every time he drives ridiculous and hit peoples car he calls this one female officer and i know is friend they be and she must be getting some sort of money. Bigger heads at traffic needs to look into certain things. Ever so often some police officers doing alot of dirty work and not doing the right thing.
