Antigua and Barbuda: Police traffic department speaks out against riding in bed of commercial vehicles

Residents have spoken out against the practice of riding in the beds of pickup trucks and similar commercial vehicles.

The plea came from the head of the police traffic department, Superintendent Rodney Ellis, following the tragic death of a 28-year-old man who recently fell from a truck while he was on his way home from work on August 5.

The man, who was in a coma in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at the hospital, died last Friday.

This is not the first time that Ellis and other officials from the traffic department have made this call, as, over the years, the bad practice has been an ongoing issue.
