Barbados Traffic Report - Stop using blinding headlights
Created : 13 December 2017
Here is a look at traffic conditions and any major concerns.
There were two minor accidents in Graeme Hall, Christ Church and Government Hill, St Michael. No injuries were reported.
Traffic is flowing across the island at this time.
Sergeant Seibert Johnson of the Royal Barbados Police Force's Traffic Division is appealing to motorists not to use headlights above 60 watts, stressing that they cause challenges for other drivers to see at night:
"You are not supposed to have those blinding headlights. 60 watts is the maximum and you tend to see persons with some close to 200 watts.
"Be considerate think of the other driver. The standard 60 watts can light up ahead of you."
He also went on to warn that "the law states to dim your headlights on the approach of another vehicle," while urging drivers to practice this at night
Practice the golden rule on our roads: "do unto others as you would have them do unto you."
