Road Safety Messages:



As Chairman of the National Road Safety Council; I am determined to make our roads even safer for our people, particularly our children and other vulnerable road users. As such, the Government is relentlessly pursuing efforts to improve traffic management and road safety in partnership with road safety stakeholders and corporate Jamaica.
The Most Hon. Andrew Michael Holness - Prime Minister
As Minister responsible for Road Safety, I appeal to everyone to do his/her part in making our road safety culture, one that can be the envy of the world.
Minister of Transport and Mining - Lester 'Mike' Henry
I implore everyone; make road safety a part of your daily lives, reduce cell phone use on the road, wear safety gears while riding a motor cycle, use your seat belt, be alert and practice defensive driving. Walk, ride, drive with care. Be your brother’s keeper; think not only of yourself but of others the life you save might just be your own.
Mikael Phillips - Opposition Spokesman on Transport and Mining
We are urging motorists and their passengers to wear seat belts and helmets, in order to minimize the degree of injuries from collisions.

The Road Safety Unit in the Ministry of Transport, Works and Housing is reporting that vulnerable road users account for the majority of road users killed in road crashes since the start of the year.

Vulnerable road users include pedestrians, motor cyclists and pedal cyclists.

According to the unit, of the 83 persons who have died on the nation’s roads since the start of the year, 22 were pedestrians; 22 were motorcyclists and 3 were pedal cyclists.

This is a 12 per cent increase in fatal deaths when compared to the similar period in 2014, when 74 persons died.

Minister without Portfolio in the Ministry of Transport, Works and Housing, Dr Morais Guy says the statistics are alarming as these crashes are preventable.

Meanwhile, Director of the Road Safety Unit, Kenute Hare says the increase in fatalities for the period is unacceptable and Jamaicans must take charge of their safety and lives in the traffic environment.
