More Highway Patrol to be Implemented

Chester Williams

The number of deaths associated with recent road traffic accidents is alarming. Commissioner of Police Chester Williams says that the police department will be working diligently to enforce highway laws in an attempt to prevent further accidents.

“We are seeing that the traffic fatalities on our highways are becoming more and more prevalent. It may have a lot to do with the improvements with the highways and drivers driving in such a way that they are not paying much due care as they should. We will be embarking on a campaign starting today where we will have enforcement on the highways. We do believe that the time has come that we need to go back and play a more active role in traffic enforcement. Just today I directed the commander of national traffic Mr Stevens to ensure that every day we have a highway patrol on the Philip Goldson Highway and one on the George Price Highway. I also want to appeal the drivers on the highway, if it is that you are going to overtake please ensure that there is sufficient distance for you to complete your overtaking and try not to take no chances.”
