In response to a surge in road accidents in Antigua and Barbuda, Attorney General and Minister for Public Safety,

Sir Steadroy Cutie Benjamin, has initiated measures to enhance road safety. Recent statistics highlight a worrying trend, with 2,448 accidents recorded in 2023, including ten fatalities, and a further 859 incidents from January to April 2024.

The rise in accidents has overwhelmed the Sir Lester Bird Medical Center, especially during weekends and holidays.

To combat this issue, Benjamin has introduced a points system for traffic violations, enhanced resources for law enforcement, and mandated the use of breathalyzers.

He has also coordinated with stakeholders including police and emergency services to reduce traffic-related injuries and fatalities, urging the community to prioritize road safety.
