Traffic accidents continue to be of grave concern here in St. Kitts and Nevis. The federation has recorded over fifteen traffic accidents for the month of January 2020.
In an interview with the VONNEWSLINE on Wednesday 8th January, Head of the Nevis Division of the Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force, Superintendent Lyndon David, had some words of advice for pedestrians.
He urged individuals to be cautious, addressed the use of the pedestrian crossing and reminded these set of commuters that they are not the only road users.
The Senior Officer sought to shed light on animal owners having their animals wandering freely on public main roads across the island.
This he noted poses a danger to human and animal life and advised motorists from willfully striking these animals with their vehicles because of the dangers it poses.
