Road Safety Week ends with appeal to ‘drive so others might survive’

The Minister of Transport closed out Road Safety Week by urging motorists to “drive so that others survive”.

Lawrence Scott told MPs that the Bermuda Road Safety Council had run “a social media blitz” throughout the week “to shine a light on road safety“. The campaign kicked off last Monday at City Hall.

Mr Scott said: “The council, along with the Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service and Bermuda Police Service, had booths available on site where information was shared to raise awareness about road safety, promote safe and responsible road use, and ultimately reduce road casualties.

“Beyond this week, the council will continue public education and awareness through the Operation Caution road safety strategy.

“During this week, all of Bermuda is urged to take that extra moment and think about the people we share the road with because our driving behaviours and the decisions we make while driving and riding can have fatal consequences.

“I take this opportunity to remind the public that driving responsibly and safely goes a long way in helping all road users to arrive home, and the greatest gift you can give your loved ones is to come home safe.

“Although today is officially the last day of Road Safety Week, let’s continue to ‘drive so that others survive’.”
