Project Yellow Light

99

The Caribbean Development Bank, CDB, is seeking to get young motorists across the region to slow down on the roads.

The CDB has partnered with the Inter-American Development Bank, IDB, to launch “Project Yellow Light”, a video contest for Latin American and Caribbean youth.

Young people between 18 and 30 years, are invited to submit a 25 or 55-second video on the importance of responsible and safe driving.

The CDB’s Operations Officer, Glen McCarvell, says the project is a natural extension of the bank’s work to promote road safety awareness.

The top three finalists will win a trip to Mexico in October, to present their work and attend the Formula-one Grand Prix.

There’s been a spike in road fatalities in Jamaica this year, with 1-hundred-and-78 deaths reported between January 1 and July 2.
