Opposition Spokesman on Transport, Mikhael Phillips is urging the Government not to allow the drafting of regulations for tabling in parliament to delay the passing of amendments to the road traffic act.

The amendments propose hefty fines for motorists.

Mr. Phillips says news that one hundred and thirty persons have been killed in 120 fatal crashes since the start of this year is disconcerting.

This represents a 9-percent decline in fatal traffic accidents when compared with the corresponding period in 2016.
