The Bermuda Road Safety Council has said it plans to reduce road collisions and deaths in 2022.

Dennis Lister III, the council’s chairman, issued a statement yesterday saying its goal would take all road users doing their part.

“We want the community’s buy-in, on our journey of road safety,” he said. “If we all take the journey of road safety together then we all have a stake in road safety and each one can do their part to make the roads safe.

“The mission statement of the BRSC is to educate the public with effective tools to reduce collisions and road fatalities.”

He said that along with Operation Caution, the Government’s 2018 to 2023 plan to reduce collisions by 25 per cent and reduce road fatalities by 25 per cent, he hoped to achieve the council’s mandate of reducing collisions and fatalities on the road.

He reminded the public to use the correct gear when driving and reminded those using the roads on foot to face oncoming traffic and wear bright reflective gear in low light or inclement weather.

He reminded motorists to drive “at the correct speed”, use indicators and refrain from driving under the influence.
