Mauritius: National road safety committee created




While 82 people died on the roads of Mauritius since the beginning of 2015, the fifty speed cameras stopped since 1 January; must be operational during the first week of September and flash again the vehicles which are speeding.
 
Six mobile cameras are currently in operation on the most accident-prone roads.
 
For Transport Minister of Mauritius, Nando Bodha, security is "a national emergency" after July which was particularly deadly on the roads of the island.
 
In addition, a national commission on road safety now will meet every six months and will be led by Prime Minister Sir Anerood Jugnauth.
 
A Reunion expert was also mandated for one year to help the authorities to fight this scourge. 40 new police bikers will also soon be assigned to monitor highways and maintain order on main roads motorists who do not respect speed limits.
 
It is to be remembered that warning signs placed 200 meters before radar and the markings indicate to motorists the presence of speed control devices.
 
Repainted in yellow, retro-reflective safety cameras will be particularly visible to drivers overnight.
