Safe students in Bahamas
NASSAU, BAHAMAS // High school students in the Bahamas participated in the nation's fourth annual National Road Safety Youth Symposium with transport minister Neko C. Grant as the keynote speaker. Topics covered at the symposium included factors that cause accidents, road safety challenges facing the disabled and injuries caused by traffic accidents. Organisers hope that by engaging young people in road safety dialogue, road fatalities in the tiny nation can be reduced. In 2008, 45 people were killed on Bahamian roads and 37 people have been killed so far in 2009.
