Accident toll reaches 101, Arrive Alive calls for change local in road culture


    Arrive Alive is again calling for a change in the local road culture.

    According to the group, this morning’s road fatality in Arima brings the number of road traffic deaths for 2019 to 101.

    Althea Mitchell, who is also a police officer, says while some accidents are due to unfortunate circumstances, others are not.

    She says some citizens don’t take road safety seriously, and usually look to escape the consequences.

    November 17th is the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims.

    Arrive Alive will mark the occasion the day before, November 16th, with a Road Safety Solidarity Walk and Drive at the Queen’s Park Savannah.

    The event begins at 2:30pm.
