LINSTEAD: Motor vehicle accident prompts call for speed bumps

A motor vehicle accident this evening in the Heathfield area of Linstead, St Catherine, reignited concerns about motorists speeding in the community.

Residents who converged at the crash scene were overheard claiming that drivers are constantly putting residents at risk.

“It is like a race track over here and most of the cars are running as robot taxis,” one resident told The Beacon.

He continued: “The police can do so much and no more because, as the drivers hear that the police are on the road, they call each other and hide. Then it’s back to business as usual for them. Not even your dog is safe on this road from it has been fixed.”

While the residents attended to the male driver involved in the crash, they accused him of speeding.

It is alleged that his vehicle got out of control, slammed into a utility pole, and then hit another vehicle that was at the entrance of a home.

The driver did not sustain any physical injury, but the motor vehicle was damaged.
