Better road safety programmes needed

The Trinidad and Tobago Road Safety Council is lobbying for the implementation of better education programmes for road users.

The request comes following last Friday’s early morning smash up which claimed the life of two and injured thre others. The accident occurred along the Churchill Roosevelt Highway in the vicinity of Beetham Gardens between an SUV and a flatbed truck. It caused a major traffic pile up on the highway for hours.

Speaking with News Power Now, President of the Road Safety Council, Stan Huggins highlighted the need for a change in the mindset of road users.

He also called for the creation of a local defensive driving module.
