Road Safety Barbados
Road Safety Barbados, has attracted a great deal of attention in recent times with the unfortunate occurrences of road deaths and serious collision’s on the island’s roads. There has been a concern that Barbadians were becoming too complacent when it came to matters of road safety on the island.
The Minister of Transport and Works in Barbados recently outlined plans for the establishment of a ‘National Road Safety Council’ which would be mandated to implement a national road safety action plan with new initiatives that will entail working committees to deal with various aspects of road safety.
Some disappointment has been expressed with regards to the job the Royal Barbados Police Force is doing when it comes to paying more attention to road safety on the island. It has been expressed that too much attention is being paid to the many offenses being made by Public Service Vehicles (PSV). However, records show that accidents on the roads of Barbados have very little involvement from these PSVs.
The reality is that accidents don’t just happen, they are caused. If they are caused, then it can only be safe to say that they can equally be prevented.
