COUNCILLORS in the Region Two (Pomeroon/Supenaam) Regional Democratic Council (RDC) last week discussed a number of proposals to deal with road traffic.

People's Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/Civic) Councillor and Chairman of the Education and Training Sub-Committee, Mr Tulsie Naraine suggested the Police should help remove

schoolchildren from Anna Regina vehicles park after a certain time.

He told the Monday statutory meeting that students of Anna Regina Multilateral and Secondary schools congregate at the location when classes are finished for the day and idle there for long hours as they wait to select special `RZ' mini-buses with `boom-boom' music boxes.

Naraine called on parents, as well, to monitor the movements of their children.

Another PPP/Civic Councillor, Mr Heerlalall Mohan observed that policing has become a much wider operation and urged any member of the public to report traffic breaches and assist in helping to curb speeding and overloading on the country's roads.

And People's National Congress (PNC) Councillor, Mrs Mary Williams admonished commuters not to travel in overloaded mini-buses.
