Talks to Address Carnage Underway Countrywide
There are calls for mini-bus conductor’s license to be supported with a photograph and a conductor should first be issued with a police clearance before getting a license. Those were some of the sentiments expressed during a ministry of home affairs community workshop at the diamond primary school for drivers on the east bank of Demerara.
The drivers also called for more stringent monitoring system to be implemented at the various bus and car parks to deal with the issues of hot plate buses and cars.
Assistant commissioner of Police and A division commander George Vyphius said that the time has come to think seriously about road safety.
Minister of home affairs Clement Rohee said meeting drivers is crucial since drivers have a first hand knowledge of road usage.
Over the past two weeks the Guyana police force’s traffic department has mounted a rigorous campaign aimed at reducing the carnage and lawlessness on the roads.
