Road safety campaign planned by task force
A road safety task force commissioned after an emergency summit has met twice and will hold another meeting this week, according to a transport spokeswoman.
A public campaign featuring “well-known Bermudians who support road safety” is now in the works, she added.
Shawn Crockwell, the minister in charge, initially expressed hopes of setting up the task force within a matter of weeks after February’s summit.
The gathering had been called in response to widespread public concern over deaths and dangerous conditions on the Island’s roads.
The Working Group’s creation was not announced until March, and sources close to the group told The Royal Gazette that it still had not met nearly three months after the summit.
The ministry spokeswoman was unable to confirm when the group had met.
The Working Group is composed of representatives from the Ministry of Public Works, the Transport Control Department, the insurance and medical sectors and the Bermuda Police Service.
