Nine students join Road Safety Council
Bermuda’s young people will be represented in road safety matters through the membership of nine student leaders who have joined a road safety group.
The students join nine new members of the Bermuda Road Safety Council.
Dennis Lister III, the chairman of the BRSC, said: “These nine student leaders have taken on the challenge of being the face of road safety for their peers. We must start with the youth to help bring about change.
“To the new council members. The council looks forward to this year with excitement and expectation of building on from last year.”
Mr Lister reminded members of the motoring public to obey traffic and road signs – the theme for the council’s educational message for April.
He added: “The importance of obeying road signs is of the utmost. Traffic signs are there to give guidance, direction and warning, and when we follow them our roads are safer.
“When travelling on the roads be observant for traffic signs and be ready to adhere to them. Bermuda has numerous traffic signs which are stated in the Transport Control Department Traffic Code Handbook.
“Upon receiving your driver’s or rider’s license a person should know what the many signs state and every few years they should renew their knowledge on them.
“Whether it is a speed sign, stop sign, concealed entrance sign or give way sign, signs are there for our safety.”
Mr Lister said that all rules of the road must be followed to maximise safety on the roads.
