Thursday 3 February 2011  The Royal Saint Lucia Police Force is once again making an emphatic plea to  all road users to acknowledge the driving  regulations  of the country.


This appeal comes as the island registered its first deadly accident for 2010 on Wednesday, February 3, 2010.


Police Public Relations Officer of the RSLPF Trevor Constantine says for example there is much danger in the   manner in which drivers switch lanes along the Castries/Gros-Islet Highway.


“When switching lanes most people don't check their rear view mirror but that is what it is there for. People switch lanes not realizing there's an oncoming vehicle or a vehicle to the that sometimes is also switching lanes resulting in a collision. We are appealing to people to always check their rear view mirrors before attempting to switch lanes.”


Corporal Constantine also made a fresh call for drivers to strictly  adhere to speed regulations.


“If you are  late,” Constantine said, “simply state your reasons for being late, but there's no need to rush on the highway putting your life and the lives of other persons at risk;  just take your time.”
