Minor accidents along Phillip Goldson Highway

Christopher Noble

Two minor accidents also occurred in Rural Belize District.  Although twenty miles apart and not as serious, the number of accidents within his area is of concern to him, says ASP Christopher Noble. Noble explains that there are several causes behind these accidents including road rage.

 

ASP Christopher Noble, Rural Executive Officer, Police Department

“We had another traffic mishap where Saturday night, sometime after seven, two vehicles were involved in a minor accident. The vehicles were extensively damaged in the area of mile eleven—that is where El Cas used to be. The injuries were very minimal thankfully, but again vehicles and lives continue to be disrupted by the accidents.  There was another traffic mishap that had occurred in the area near the Crooked Tree junction. We have the information that we gathered from someone that did come in. And we did have the other party—both parties have come in and we did record that traffic mishap. It is minor; however, some part of it may be attributed to road rage. We are hoping that that is not the case, but drivers again need to be very cautious and sometimes the speed you drive may not necessarily be the speed that you can control.”

    Every morning and every night i watch the speeding coming in and going out of the city from Brodies past Biltmore. Big towheads without rear lights, trucks and cars overtaking at high speeds, cyclists riding on the wrong side of the road without lights make for a really big accident waiting to happen. We need the police out at these hours with checkpoints to slow the traffic and also use the radar to check the speeds. lets do something before a really big accident happens on this stretch of road.
