CIRSAC encourages road safety

The Cayman Islands Road Safety Advisory Council recently launched a road safety campaign entitled, Do your part to keep our roads safe.

This campaign is being held in conjunction with taxi companies and will be available throughout the holiday season.

The campaign features 20,000 wallet-sized pledge cards, and approximately 200 posters and flyers will be placed in various liquor-licensed establishments throughout Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac.

All liquor-licensed establishments in the Cayman Islands are asked to support the campaign and encourage their employees and clients to utilise the taxi service during the Holiday Season.

Hotels and condominiums are also asked to encourage their guests to utilise the taxi service if they plan to consume alcoholic beverages.

Event-organizers are asked to make advance arrangements with tour buses or taxi companies for the safe transportation of their guests following personal or corporate Christmas or New Year celebrations.

Participating taxi companies on Grand Cayman include: Ace Cayman Nice, Burdonjay’s Taxi, Burton’s Taxi, Charlie’s Super Cab, Crown Taxi, Holiday Taxi and Yellow Cab.

Cayman Brac Taxi, and D & M Taxi are also participating in Cayman Brac.

General Motors and Chevrolet are the main sponsors supporting the Don’t Drink and Drive Campaign.

‘General Motors and Chevrolet are proud to partner with the Cayman Islands Road Safety Advisory Council in its mission to stop drunk driving,’ said Ignacio Limpenny, General Motors International Sales Managing Director.

James Smith, Acting Commissioner of Police for the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service, said: ‘The RCIPS gives its full support to the Cayman Islands Road Safety Advisory Council’s safe driving campaign. Road safety is of significant concern to the police and the RCIPS will play its part by increasing patrols during the Holiday Season to enforce the law and ensure safe driving.’

Companies may request pledge cards from the CIRSAC for distribution to their employees and clients.
