Falmouth mayor urges caution on the roadway
TRELAWNY, Jamaica – Mayor of Falmouth and chairman of the Trelawny Municipal Corporation Councillor, C Junior Gager, is urging motorists to be extra careful on the roads during the festive season.
Last week the number of fatalities on the nation’s road jumped over the 400 mark.
Speaking at the annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony in Falmouth, Trelawny last week, Gager appealed for caution on the roads to avoid further loss of lives.
“I make a special appeal to all road users to exercise much vigilance and care on the roads over this holiday season. We are losing too many lives to accidents which could clearly be avoided,” Gager appealed.
“If you must drink, get someone else to drive. If you must get to your destination, leave home on time. Let us be better road users,” he added.
Meanwhile, addressing members of the business community in Falmouth last week, commander of the Trelawny Police Division, Deputy Superintendent of Police Winston Milton disclosed that the number of people who died from motor vehicular accidents in the parish since the start of the year, stood at 21, which were three less than the 24 recorded around the same time last year.
