Road safety is a shared responsibility!
ARRIVE ALIVE was launched on December 31st 2004. At inception, our primary objective was to bring Road Carnage and Road Safety to the National forefront. Through the efforts of many, including local Soca Artistes, Corporate sponsors, the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service, our collective attention has been focussed on the problems faced on the Nation's roadways. Road Safety messages are everywhere, unfortunately, the fact remains that the Road Fatality rate remains virtually unchanged.
