The President of the National Council on Public Transportation (NCOPT), Godfrey Ferdinand, is urging the authorities to ensure that there are more measures in place to reduce collisions on the roads.
Ferdinand made the call while calling for a comprehensive investigation into a collision on Saturday that resulted in the death of mini a Babonneau bus driver identified as Thomas Louisy, aka Bolay.
The collision between Louisy’s bus and a truck occurred on the Millennium Highway.
NCOPT President, Godfrey Ferdinand, told the Times that with the right measures in place, including the use of breathalyzers and speed guns, motorists may think twice before taking chances.
He noted that while there will always be accidents due to issues relating to the use of alcohol or drugs, speeding, adverse road conditions, mechanical problems and driver error, fatalities could be reduced.
Ferdinand called on drivers to be more cautious.
He also urged the authorities to put the necessary measures in place to deter motorists from taking changes and ensure that persons know that those measures are in place.
