IN observance of National Road Safety Month, teachers and students of secondary schools on the West Coast of Demerara came out in full last week to promote road safety awareness, targeting a wide cross-section of adults.

Stationed strategically on the Vreed-en-Hoop ferry stelling where many people pass in a rush to board a ‘speed boat’ to get to the capital, the students held signs with various slogans and messages about safe driving.

Meanwhile, Den Amstel Primary School teachers Jenelle Anthony and Sophia Ally had indicated that the pupils would march to the West Demerara Secondary School for a rally on safe driving. And many more schools were expected to join the activity.
The Ministry of Home Affairs in collaboration with the Guyana National Road Safety Council (GNRSC) and the Traffic Department of the Guyana Police Force on Friday last launched National Road Safety Month 2013 under the theme: “Alcohol, Speed and Inattentiveness Cause Accidents; Drive Wisely and Save Lives.”
