RGP urges caution after four road collisions
The Royal Gibraltar Police has urged motorists to exercise caution after four road collisions resulted in several people being taken to hospital with injuries on Tuesday.
In response, the RGP has tackled traffic hot spots, resulting in 21 reports made in a couple of hours on Line Wall Road on Wednesday.
The RGP issued a statement reminding motorists to take extra care on the road.
On Wednesday, four persons were reported for not wearing seatbelts, eight for speeding, six for using mobile phones whilst driving, two for no MVT and one motorcycle rider not wearing a helmet properly.
A spokesman for the RGP said: “We would like to remind people that road safety is everyone’s responsibility.”
“Speeding, using mobile phones, not using indicators and not wearing seatbelts – all of these cause traffic collisions, which can be avoided.”
“One motorist this morning was driving at almost twice the speed limit on his way to work and was annoyed that we stopped and fined him.”
“It’s this sort of driving that causes collisions on our roads and the sort of attitude towards road safety that we want to get rid of.”
