106 road deaths so far this year

The wreckage of the car that Leslie Mc Gregor was driving when he was killed after slamming into a lamp post on the Solomon Hochoy highway yesterday.

PORT OF SPAIN — The road fatality figure climbed to 106 yesterday, after a car ran off the northbound carriageway of the Solomon Hochoy Highway and slammed into an electricity pole, killing the driver.

Leslie Mc Gregor, 55, of St Mary’s Village, South Oropouche, died on the spot after being flung about 15 feet from his car. His body was discovered by police officers around 10:45 a.m.

Last week coordinator of the Police Service Road Safety project Brent Batson appealed to motorists to be careful on the roads.

He said more people will die if motorists did not adhere to the speed limit. He revealed that high tech speed guns will be introduced as part of the Government’s crime fighting arsenal. He added that there has been a nine per cent increase in road deaths this year, compared with statistics from 2011, so it was imperative that the Government work to combat road carnage. (Guardian)
