BRSC: “Our Roads – National Health Crisis”

October 2, 2014

The Bermuda Road Safety Council have extended their condolences and prayers to the family & friends of 46 year old Troy Robinson who lost his life in a road traffic collision that took place on Monday [Sept 29] on North Shore Road in Hamilton parish.

Carlton Crockwell, Chairman of the Bermuda Road Safety Council said, “On behalf of the Bermuda Road Safety Council, I would like to extend our condolences and prayers to the family & friends of the 46 year old St. George’s man who lost his life on the road. To his family, I say the road ahead is a difficult one; however, please know that the council and the wider Bermudian community are holding you up in our prayers.

“The focus of the BRSC is education – to ensure that our community is informed about road safety matters to make better choices on our roads. To this end, we will be launching our new “Slow Down” campaign featuring local musical artists King Cami Cam & Kidd Clazzic this month.

The message is geared towards encouraging the young & not so young to decrease the speeds on the roads. The campaign will be promoted on radio, television, and social media websites.

“The Bermuda Road Safety Council would like to thank the BPS and encourage them to double their efforts in keeping our roads safe; their support is appreciated. Again, we extend our heartfelt support to the family/friends of the deceased.”

    This has to be supported. But would it not be better to sit down with the Police, CADA, education and transport officials and perhaps the media to work out one, coordinated and planned, long-lasting all encompassing, well funded campaign?

    Just one little item,when trimming trees triim too 10 ‘ high so that tall trucks and such can stay leggallly on their side of de road..

  3. mumbojumbo says:

    trees and hedges that protrude into the road are real and present danger,they cause cars and truck to the center ,if they collide the impact is an impact of the speed of both the vehicles combined,between 40 and 60 miles an hour.You remove this possability by trimming the sides up to say nine feet…let the top grow over…looks nice.

    May I suggest that the Police go over to Par-La-Ville Road at 3:30pm every day to stop some of this speeding going by? Seems like all these children get out of school and race along the street to get into town. Maybe by doing this we can stop some of the maniacs on the road. Good luck

    I am surprised that we have to give tree cutting suggestions.
