In a positive turn of events, the National Road Safety Council (NRSC) has reported only two road fatalities since the beginning of 2024, marking a decline from previous years. Dr. Lucien Jones, the Vice Chairman of NRSC, expressed satisfaction with the downward trend compared to data from 2023 and 2022.

The reported incidents involve a Negril motorcycle crash with a 19-year-old male and a St. James collision between a vehicle and a pedestrian. Dr. Jones is cautiously optimistic about the future but questions the sustainability of this trend. A forthcoming meeting will determine the NRSC’s strategies for advancing advocacy in the new year, with a thorough review of 2023’s data.

While acknowledging the positive development, Dr. Jones emphasizes the need for continued efforts to ensure safer road use, recognizing that there is still a substantial journey ahead. Stay tuned for updates as the NRSC works towards a safer road environment in 2024.
