Motorists urged to be cautious as crashes usually spike at month-end

Dr. Lucien Jones, Vice Chairman of the National Road Safety Council
 
The National Road Safety Council (NRSC) is warning motorists to be cautious amid data which show a surge in deadly crashes at the end of each month. 
 
NRSC Vice Chair Dr. Lucien Jones says the Council and the police have noted that there is a significant increase in a number of fatalities in the fourth week of each month. 
 
"This is something they [police] noted in 2023 and therefore we are warning people as we enter the fourth week of January that we need to be extremely careful because it is at this time that we see a spike in a number of road fatalities," he warned.
 
Some 425 road fatalities were recorded last year, with more than 100 motorcyclists among those killed.
 
National Security Minister Dr. Horace Chang and Transport Minister Darly Vaz recently met with members of the National Road Safety Council to discuss the implementation of the new ticketing system.
 
The parties also discussed increased enforcement to reduce road collisions and fatalities.
