Sergeant Calvin Amory, of the St. Kitts and Nevis Police Force, revealed on Monday, 18th June, 2012, that there are plans by the government to implement traffic lights here in the federation.
Amory while on the Department’s radio programme stated that the same contractors who worked on the F.T Williams Highway, in Basseterre, have been given the task to examine the project and provide the necessary traffic lights in certain sections of the capital city.
He also said that a study was done by the same company and a report was said to be handed over to government.
Amory added that it is a matter that is outside the realms of his department, so it is now for the government to introduce whatever measures they deem necessary.
He went on to say that if these were to be implemented, the education of motorists would be necessary, to ensure that all rules are upheld.
There has been strong public support for such traffic lights to be introduced in the country, to help address some of the challenging problems being faced by both motorists and pedestrians.
