A 17 year old Chaguanas boy is the latest road fatality, after the car he was travelling in crashed on the Uriah Butler Highway.
One report stated that Jeremiah Prince was ejected from the car when it crashed into a concrete culvert near Warrenville.
Senior Superintendent Sharon Gomez-Cooper of the Traffic and Highway Patrol Branch says seatbelts are important, and it seems the teenager was not wearing them.
Meanwhile, the officer today outlined the traffic plans for the reopening of school and how the newly acquired police motorcycles are being used.
She called on motorists to obey all traffic laws.
