Representatives from the National Road Safety Council, the police and members of Jamaica’s two main political parties, met today (Thurs) to discuss the safety of political motorcades, ahead of the local government election next Monday.

This after two people, including a teen, were killed and another was injured, in road related incidents on the campaign trail this month.

Vice Chairman of the Council Dr. Lucien Jones, says given the serious nature of the matter, it was important for a meeting to be held.

He says as a result, he invited two senior political leaders, the Jamaica Labour Party’s Delroy Chuck and the People’s National Party’s Peter Bunting and the Head of the police’s Public Safety and Traffic Enforcement Branch Assistant Commissioner of Police Gary McKenzie to a meeting.

Dr. Jones says Chairman of the Electoral Commission of Jamaica Earl Jarrett, also participated in the discussion.

The Vice Chair says during the meeting, a consensus was derived at and more details will be provided on this soon.
