The National Association of Driving Schools is unhappy about a video of Prime Minister Allen Chastanet as a pillion rider on a police motor cycle without the required safety gear.

The association has called on Prime Minster Chastanet to issue a public apology and to admit he made a mistake.

Prime Minister Allen Chastanet has come under heavy fire for getting onto a police motorcycle without a helmet.

The criticism by the National Association of Driving Schools follows last weekend’s collision which claimed the lives of two young motorcycle riders. The Association, along with the traffic police have been at the forefront of calls for more caution on local roads and for drivers to adhere to traffic laws. The Association feels the prime minister is sending the wrong message through his recent actions

In the video, the prime minister is seen being driven through Rodney Bay Village.

Mr Jean also addressed a recent initiative by the Traffic Department of the RSLPF designed to crack down on traffic law violators.

St. Lucia has recorded 10 road fatalities already for the year.
