Watch: Traffic: 'It's a wonder there aren't more accidents'

Times Talk meets with Malta Road Safety Council member Pierre Vella

Reckless driving is so widespread that traffic analysts sometimes wonder how there aren't more accidents on Maltese roads, Malta Road Safety Council executive manager Pierre Vella tells Times Talk

"People act as though they're the only people on the road," Mr Vella notes in the course of an interview in which he argues that there are ways of cranking up enforcement without having more officers policing the roads. 

Mr Vella argues that road safety is as much about pedestrian behaviour as it is about drivers' and hints at his disagreement with authorities' decision to relax enforcement for a variety of motoring contraventions, saying "I don't see how you can let someone get away with it. We can't afford it."
