Cut ‘Triangle’ speed limit
THE BARBADOS ROAD SAFETY ASSOCIATION is calling for an advisory speed limit to be added to a specific area along the ABC Highway.
For many, that area remains the most dangerous stretch of highway in Barbados, and has been the site of a number of serious accidents.
As a result of the increased number of near-death crashes on the Barrow section of the ABC Highway adjacent to Rendezvous, Christ Church, known as the “Bermuda Triangle”, president of the association, Sharmaine Roland-Bowen, said the time had come for a 50 to 60 km per hour speed advisory to be added by the Ministry of Transport and Works, which would encourage drivers to automatically slow down before reaching the “Triangle”.
The speed limit on most sections of the ABC Highway is 80 kilometres per hour.
