Looking To The Next Generation Of Adults To Curb Road Fatalities

Mr. Hare is urging road users to consider their families and the effects of their actions while on the road

The director Jamaica’s Road Safety Unit, Kenute Hare, has conceded that it will be left to future generations to reduce the number of road fatalities.

The Unit has released data which show that there have been 425 deaths from 388 crashes so far this year, of whom 191 were in the prime working age category of 25-54.

Mr Hare, speaking earlier this week with the state owned Jamaica Information Service, bemoaned what he said was the failure of adults to take responsibility for reducing road fatalities, so he wants to the children who will succeed them to make the change.

He said the Road Safety Unit has been using social media and traditional media, as well as community outreach to inform the general public about road safety issues.
