Road Safety

ROAD SAFETY
It has been statistically shown that during the past five years, the number of fatalities
and injuries associated with road accidents are steadily increasing.

Fatalities due to road incidents have now reached a grand total of 181 (1999),
significantly greater than its total, five years ago, in 1995, which was 105. Since 1995,
road deaths have increased by an average of 14 people per year. This type of carnage
impedes the positive growth of our country and needs to be stopped.

I think the most important factor that needs to be looked at in our goal to sustainable
development is social responsibility. That is, drivers need to have a responsible attitude
and a level of maturity when given this privilege.

The attitude of drivers plays a major role in road safety. Drivers need to be cautious,
and sensitive to all the rules and safety regulations of the road. Safe habits need to be
adopted and practised constantly. Drivers must take responsibility for their condition at
all times. For example, if some external stimuli affects normal bodily activities, such as
normal vision or normal reaction time, for example, alcohol or drugs, drivers should not
drive. Drivers who feel sick, tired, or upset should also not drive during these periods.
If drivers use corrective lenses, these should always be worn. All these are elements of
social responsibility. It must be understood by all drivers that driving is the privilege
of mature, responsible individuals who need to recognise that things such as these are
potentially dangerous, if not taken seriously.

Road rules such as speed limits and no parking zones also need to be strictly adhered to
by drivers. Due to drivers disobeying these simple rules, they significantly increase the
risk of accidents and make it difficult for other drivers in the process. Typical examples
of drivers practising very unsafe habits in Trinidad are drivers who cut people off in
traffic, because they are in a hurry and drivers who make sudden lane changes or attempt
to outrun yellow lights.

Drivers however are not the only ones to be blamed. Drivers cannot effectively drive
safely in unsafe conditions. For this reason, next in line of importance when addressing
safety on roads is general infrastructure of the country.

Roads should be properly maintained in order to function safely and efficiently as means
of allowing transport to take place. Impediments on roads cause drivers to lose control
over their vehicles and force drivers to make illegal moves. If impediments such as
potholes, stones, tree branches etc. are present drivers would need to infringe upon
traffic flowing in the opposite direction in order to pass. Should these impediments be
remedied, roads will be made safer to a significant degree. Maintenance of infrastructure
should also include properly functioning lights on roadsides for night drivers and
properly maintained street signs and traffic directing arrows. Many accidents are caused

due to improperly lighted streets. Drivers are unable to see oncoming vehicles in time and
thus collide. Some streets have improperly functioning lights while some street have no
lights at all. This is a major safety breach. A great many accidents are similarly caused
by vandalised or missing street signs. Drivers who are familiar with signless routes will
tend to drive at a confident speed while unsuspecting novice drivers to the same route
might turn to go the wrong way on a one way street and this could result in loss of lives.
Good infrastructure is a necessity in the area of safe driving.

Areas of congestion are also common key locations of road injuries. Congestion tempts
drivers to make illegal and dangerous turns, violate road laws and also provides
temptations such as overtaking in critical areas, such as intersections, which is
definitely harmful and dangerous.

Problems such as these can be solved by the introduction of traffic wardens in key
locations who will regulate the passage of vehicles and thus ensure a smooth, freely
flowing line of traffic which avoids putting temptation before drivers.

Another alternative is making aware to the public, other routes which enable drivers to
reach the same destination. This will altogether avoid the problem of congestion and
reduce harmful road incidents.
