It’s good that the Church Wall at St James has been repaired recently. But traffic at the island continues to be dangerous especially for pedestrians. What we know as a local issue is also a global issue and will be discussed by the United Nations in November this year.

Did you know?

·     Someone is killed or maimed every 6 seconds on the world’s roads.

·     Every three minutes a child is killed on the world’s roads.

·     Road deaths in poorer countries are set to rise by 80% by 2020.

·     Road crashes are the single biggest killer of young people in Europe and the US.

·     Only HIV/AIDS kills more young men worldwide.

·     Road crashes kill on the scale of Malaria and Tuberculosis.
