Motorcycle and bicycle brigades should improve Traffic Department’s response to road accidents, says ASP Ellis

The Traffic Department Head, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Rodney Ellis, says his Department is now better equipped to respond to accidents in a timely fashion, which will reduce the wait time to have matters investigated.

Recently, the Department received a fleet of motorcycles, and these will assist not only with patrolling but with responding more quickly to traffic collisions.

However, with the Department investigating, on average, five accidents per day, Ellis says it will still be difficult to respond to all these cases at the same time.

Meanwhile, the Traffic Head says the Police Force has also received some bicycles, and these will be used by officers, as well, to respond to incidents within the city limits, in the countryside and on the sister island of Barbuda.
