‘Shameful’ – Attard PL councillor decries refusal to install speed camera on Central Link

Attard councillor Victor Galea said that Transport Malta is still “studying” whether to install a speed camera in the area where a young woman lost her life in a traffic accident this morning.

“It’s shameful,” the Labour councillor told Net TV. Representatives of the two parties had gone to the ministry (of transport) to insist with Transport Malta that a speed camera is required to act as a deterrent in the area, but the matter was still being studied, they were told.

Kacey Sciberras, 17, died this morning when the driver of a car she was riding is as a passenger lost control of the vehicle. The accident happened in Tumas Chetcuti Street, more known as the Central Link.

On Sundays the area is used as a race-track for motorbikes, Galea said. When there are discos in the vicinity the speed with which cars are driven reaches “150, 180” km per hour. The residents know what is happening but the authorities do not want to listen.

“It’s not right,” the visibly emotional councillor said.
