Region 3 Road Safety Association hosts drivers’ outreach

The Region Three (Essequibo Islands-West Demerara) Road Safety Association, in collaboration with the region’s Police Traffic Department, on Wednesday held a community and drivers outreach programme at Wakenaam, Essequibo River.
According to the association, the outreach was seen as timely, as most residents of the island use motorcycles as their primary source of transportation.
During the outreach, riders and drivers were urged to practise defensive driving, and were warned not to use alcohol or narcotic substances when driving. The issue of speeding was also discussed during the outreach, as it was cited as the main cause of road fatalities in Guyana.
The Police Traffic Department addressed the issue of the road traffic laws and rules during the outreach.
