Police appeal for caution on the roads

Police are appealing to the public to exercise extreme caution on the road this Kadooment Day weekend, on the heels of reports of several accidents on the island.

“Today we recorded a higher number of accidents that usual, not located in any one area but spread across Barbados,” Police spokesman, Acting Assistant Superintendent David Welch told Barbados TODAY.


Accident in Wildey this morning.


While he was unable to give a specific number, Welch advised motorists to exercise greater caution this bank holiday weekend in order to minimise the number of accidents.

“Drive with care, do not drive under the influence.  Have a designated driver, and if you are tired, find a public space where you can rest before continuing your journey,” he said.

This morning a Suzuki Swift collided with a Transport Board bus in Wildey, and in another incident a motorist was treated by emergency services following an accident on Westbury Road.
