With hundreds of motor vehicle crashes reported annually, inclusive of motorcycle crashes in Westmoreland, the parish has built a reputation for being a hotspot for trauma. Last Thursday's Taking Responsibility Road Tour visited the parish to discuss how to prevent these incidents and the benefits of proper safety gear.
