NRSC encourages public to ensure that reflexes are not impaired before driving
The National Road Safety Council, NRSC, is encouraging the motoring public, to ensure that their reflexes are not impaired, when operating motor vehicles on the nation’s roadways.
This, after reports emerged that two hotel workers were mowed down by a driver, who reportedly fell asleep while driving, in Westmoreland, last night.
The workers are reportedly being treated at hospital.
Speaking with Irie Fm news, NRSC Vice-chairman, Dr Lucien Jones, said falling asleep at the wheel, has resulted in crashes, injury and death, across the world.
Noting that 354 people have died on Jamaica’s roads so far this year, Dr. Jones stressed the importance of motorists staying alert while travelling.
