Road safety campaign to launch website
The Royal Gazette’s Drive for Change campaign is to launch a webpage designed to highlight road safety in Bermuda.
The site, which will go live on Wednesday, will provide up-to-date information on traffic incidents, developments in roads legislation and reports related to the Drive for Change campaign.
The site will also detail the research that has gone into the establishment of the campaign objectives.
The goals of Drive for Change include the introduction of non-selective roadside breath testing, speed cameras and a graduated licensing programme.
The campaign objectives have been backed by other organisations including road safety pressure group and official partner A Piece of the Rock, as well as the Bermuda Police Service, the Bermuda Road Safety Council, anti-alcohol abuse charity Cada, emergency doctors and EMTs at the Bermuda Hospitals Board.
The targets have also been supported by Joseph Froncioni, an orthopaedic surgeon and road safety expert, who is also a former chairman of the BRSC.
The website will act as a way for members of the public to join the movement for change.
It will include a series of maps, produced by Drive for Change and A Piece of the Rock, collating all publicly available data involving roads deaths over the past ten years.
The site will also have information on deaths in each constituency and details of how to contact MPs.
There will also be a memorial map as a reminder of the 118 lives lost on the roads over the past decade.
The public are invited to come on board and share their ideas on how to reduce the risk of traffic-related deaths and injuries.
People can join the Drive for Change campaign at driveforchange.rg.bm from Wednesday.
