Traffic Department Head frustrated that pedestrians and drivers continue to ignore road-safety rules

Assistant Police Commissioner Rodney Ellis is displeased and frustrated that his continued pleas and cautions to road users are not being heeded.  In his estimation, proof of this is the number of collisions involving pedestrians of late.

The Traffic Department Head has been at pains to highlight the rules and regulations of the road at every opportunity – and, more recently, at the end-of-year press briefing hosted by Commissioner Atlee Rodney.

ASP Ellis admits that persons are taking chances when crossing roads where there are no pedestrian markings.  But he insists that most collisions can be avoided if drivers are more alert behind the wheel.

The senior officer also gives a brief update on the investigation into the latest road fatality, which occurred last Friday.
