IN AN EFFORT to curtail the occurrence of frequent accidents at the well-known “collision corner” at Church and New Garden Streets, Georgetown, the Guyana Police Force (GPF) has installed speed bumps at all its approaches.

The corner received this infamous moniker because of the number of accidents which occurred there over the past years. Though some of the accidents have been mere proverbial bumper-to-bumper collisions, others have seen persons either losing their lives or being severely injured, due to reckless driving.

However, road users are contending that one speed bump might have been wrongly placed on Church Street. They base their contention on the fact that Church Street is a “major road.” Added to that, persons are enquiring whether an indication sign would be placed a few yards away from the bump, in order to notify persons to proceed slowly.

Nevertheless, many have lauded the initiative taken by the Guyana Police Force to install these speed bumps.
