Chairman Correa expressed concern about the safety hazard which speeding traffic has become in his community. The specific area where the accident occurred yesterday is high risk for collisions since persons driving from the direction of San Roman must turn towards incoming highway traffic to get to the polyclinic. The village chairman shared that he had foreseen problems when the Polyclinic was built and had requested assistance with speed bumps several years ago. Those requests were refused by the Ministry, however.

“Looking at it, it would seem that that area it would need some type of speed control a speed bump or something because people are constantly turning off the highway, many times against traffic into the clinic?”

“Yes and that is one of the most important things I mentioned to the ministry of public works as they were building the Poly Clinic that it would need a major thing there like a speed bump or a pedestrian ramp but until now we don’t have but I think…”


Reporter


“You have been asking for it?”


Elvis Correa, Chairman, San Narciso Village


“Yes! I have been asking for it.”


Reporter


“What is the ministry’s response?”


Elvis Correa, Chairman, San Narciso Village


“They said that they cannot put speed bump every hundred feet because they have many speed bumps at the road and that is why they cannot put too much bumps on the highway and that is one of the answers that they gave me.”

 

Reporter


“Do you think that they will put the bump now?”


Elvis Correa, Chairman, San Narciso Village


“Well, I hope that what happened yesterday I will continue fighting for it.”


Reporter


“Now it’s a big issue for you because you have a paved road through your community that you probably have two years ago, explain to me how much of an issue is it right here in the community?”


Elvis Correa, Chairman, San Narciso Village


“Well, in this San Narciso/San victor road I think four people have died and we need some more speed bumps, I can put one and I need more for my villagers specially for the children.


The Chan family is preparing to hold a wake tonight to remember their loved ones lost in the double tragedy. The accident victims are survived by 10 children and a host of grandchildren. Funeral services will be held on Friday at the community’s Catholic Church.
