Enough! That’s the warning to motorists who have turned the sidewalks around the Queen Elizabeth Hospital into parking lots.
A concerned member of the Royal Barbados Police Force reported yesterday that the situation had become so acute that complaints by pedestrians of near misses had been pouring in to Central Station.
“Any motorist who parks on the sidewalk can now expect to get a ticket,” a member of the police’s Traffic Department said. “People’s lives are being put at risk and we can’t allow it to continue.”
At the same time he called on authorities at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital to provide adequate space for people visiting the institution, since the problem was particularly unbearable during the midday and evening visiting periods. (RRM)
