Police to add more checkpoints along highways; urge drivers to follow road rules

The devastated families of last night’s incident are pleading for drivers to exercise caution and use this recent tragedy as an example to prevent further deaths on the highways. The police are also making a public appeal for drivers to respect the rules of the road. Assistant Commissioner of Police, Hilberto Romero, says the police will be adding more vehicular checkpoints on the roads to discourage motorists from driving carelessly. 

ACP Hilberto Romero, Officer Commanding Eastern Division: “Yes, we have our checkpoints up and we are currently working on putting other checkpoints along the highway, again to discourage drivers from this issue of reckless driving. And again we encourage drivers to exercise extreme caution. Yesterday it was raining really hard and so these persons should have been more precautious, you know, ensure that you have a clear path when overtaking because that seems to be the issue here that led to this accident. The ones that are up are managed 24 hours but we will also have others that will be set up for this coming Christmas season.”

We’ll have more on road safety and the dos and don’ts of the highway in tomorrow’s newscast.
