Road safety advocate Sharmane Roland-Bowen wants jail time for those responsible for road fatalities.

She made the call yesterday while also placing a number of signs near dangerous potholes as she marked United Nations World Day Of Remembrance For Road Traffic Victims And Their Families 2020 and Road Safety Month.
