“Given the nature of the numerous accidents that have been occurring on the George Price Highway and the Phillip Goldson Highway we have put a proposal together where we will be submitting to the Commissioner of Police for the Minister of National Security and Minister of Health to consider where we train police officers to be paramedics and serve as dual functions and we have an ambulance based out of Sandhill and another based out of Mahogany Heights so that we can have much quicker and faster response by the medical team to render aid and services in the effort of protecting life. As well we are looking at setting up speed traps in various parts of the George Price Highway as well as the Phillip Goldson Highway.”

There were no fatalities reported in these two cases.
