2017 Christmas Road Safety Press Conference

Thursday, December 07,2017

Minister of Transport & Regulatory Affairs The Hon. Walter Roban, JP, MP: Good morning: Road safety is a very serious issue and I have a simple message for all drivers, but especially for young male drivers. Slow down. Our roads have no room for error. Stop making other drivers react to your excessive speed. Many don’t have your highly-tuned reaction times. In addition…and this is something you will hear again and again today…do not drive when impaired. Road traffic accidents are taking a terrible toll on Bermuda…and they mostly affect younger people in the prime of life. The number one external cause of death in Bermuda, (i.e. death that is not from illness or disease), is transport accidents at 34.8%.*
