Saint Lucia Fire Service Urges Caution On The Roads After Spate Of Accidents


A recent spate of road accidents has prompted the Saint Lucia Fire Service (SLFS) to renew an appeal to citizens to exercise ‘utmost caution’ when traversing the streets.

“Motorists, please keep your attention on driving at all times and adhere to the road signs. Also, be mindful of each other and pedestrians. Reckless and indiscriminate driving costs lives,” SLFS Communications Officer Stacy Joseph stated.

Joseph spoke on Thursday, one day after a spurt of gun violence claimed four lives.

In addition, one man died, while several people sustained injuries in separate road incidents that marred Independence Day celebrations.

According to the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF), four people have died this year due to road accidents.

And the SLFS is concerned about the impact on surviving loved ones and emergency responders.

Fire service spokeswoman Stacy Joseph explained that the constant road incidents are physically and mentally tasking the responders and emotionally devastating to those who lose loved ones.

” So again, we are asking for consideration and partnership in making our roads safe because safety is everyone’s responsibility,” Joseph said.
