Police appeal

Police are appealing for motorists to exercise greater caution on the country’s roads as the number of accidents continues to climb.

Public Relations Officer Inspector David Welch tells Barbados TODAY that drivers need to be more careful and attentive.

Members of the Royal Barbados Police Force are appealing to all road users, to commuters and especially motorists, to exercise greater caution and to obey the rules that govern the highways. Public service vehicles especially have a greater responsibility since they’re ferrying lives daily. So we’re appealing to them to take every precaution. Everyone must play their part in reducing accidents or road deaths,” he said.

Inspector Welch was speaking against the backdrop of Saturday’s death of 35-year-old Troy Ifill of Cutting Road, Haggatt Hall, St Michael, who died when the car he was driving collided with a Transport Board bus at Lemon Arbor, St John.

Some 29 people were injured in that accident, while another 25 people were hurt when a minibus overturned at Windsor Road, St Philip.
