The tragic deaths this year of five motorcyclists have led the Barbados Road Safety Association (BRSA) to push for urgent safety measures for this “vulnerable” group of road users. “We can no longer sit back, watch and wait for accidents involving motorcycles and non-motorcycle vehicles to stop while motorcyclists are continuously killing themselves or being killed on our roads,” association president Sharmaine Roland-Bowen said in a news release. The BRSA wants a new law to make it mandatory for all motorcycle riders to use daylight running lights during daylight hours, along with formal safety education and better training for motorcyclists. The headlights are designed to come on automatically when the engine is started – day or night – to enhance visibility.
