Senior Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Ports, Transport, Physical Development and Urban Renewal Stephenson King told reporters on Monday that recklessness and indiscipline are responsible for road accidents in many instances.
And he expressed concern about a recent spate of such accidents, some of which have resulted in fatalities.
“We are doing all in our power and within our own means to be able to assist in that regard,'” the Castries North MP explained.
King noted that some people complain that some of the accidents occur because of potholes on the roads.
However, he told reporters that sometimes good surfaces provided contribute to the accidents.
“We are hoping in the new financial year to launch a very aggressive road safety campaign to sensetise the general population on the use of our roads, the need to respect signs and signals etc on the roads and of course to be conscious of the fact that when you’re on the road, you are in a situation where you are likely to take someone’ life,” the Minister told reporters.
