“I believe the authorities should step up on the question of wearing your head gear or your helmet. I think a six-month grace period should be given, and the authorities should find some creative ways to, you know whether it’s on the duty-free concession to some agency to import all these helmets and sell it to them at a reasonable price and within six months and anybody riding without a helmet should be charged and fined instantly at the court, “Irish recommended

His comments came after a fatal traffic accident which claimed the life of Philsbert Williams, a 33-year-old police officer from Portsmouth, on December 26th (Boxing Day).

“We had an unfortunate death of a young police officer from a motorcycle accident…let me encourage all of us on the roads in Dominica to go slow and if you are riding a motorcycle, by all means please wear a helmet,” he advised while speaking on Q-95 Radio this week. “Helmet saves lives.”

Dr. Fontaine made an appeal for the mandatory wearing of helmets to become law in Dominica.

“And I think it’s about time that it becomes the law in Dominica that helmets are mandated, because too many young people are being killed in motorcycle accidents and it is really too much now.”

Dr. Fontaine also advised motorists to avoid drinking alcohol when driving and also, “don’t speed.”

“Be safe on the roads and as we go into 2021 let’s be mindful of this,” he encouraged.

He expressed condolences to the family and friends of officer Williams.

Former senior police officer, Ainsworth Irish, has also been stressing the need for more stringent measures  regarding the wearing of helmets.

“I believe the authorities should step up on the question of wearing your head gear or your helmet. I think a six-month grace period should be given, and the authorities should find some creative ways to, you know whether it’s on the duty-free concession to some agency to import all these helmets and sell it to them at a reasonable price and within six months and anybody riding without a helmet should be charged and fined instantly at the court, “Irish recommended.

The former assistant superintendent of police noted that most traffic collisions involving motorcyclists result in serious head injuries.

Police constable, Philsbert Williams died after the motorcycle he was riding collided with a car on the E.O Leblanc Highway on December 26, 2020. Dominican cricketer, Tyrone Theophile is now in a Martinique hospital fighting for his life following a motorcycle accident which also occurred on December 26, near the post office in Roseau.
