Careless practices by drivers and motorcyclists continue to translate into too many accidents and road fatalities.
And there is growing concern among insurance companies about the rising number of motorcycle collisions and the number of young people involved in accidents.
Up to December 25, 2012, there were 27 road deaths, five of them involving motorcyclists. So far for 2013, there have been two deaths as a result of accidents involving motorcycles.
Rawle Knight, assistant vice-president of operations and customer service at the Insurance Corporation of Barbados Limited (ICBL), said what was more worrying was that some of the drivers involved in the accidents were not insured.
