Exercise caution with big music trucks*


I refer to problems related to Carnival that need to be addressed in order people play mas and enjoy the festival in safety. First, there is the tragedy in which a tourist lost his life when a music truck hit him. Revellers must be careful when following a band and are near to a music truck.
The persons in charge of the truck must ensure those nearby are warned that the vehicle is going to reverse or turn. Secondly, the noise level.
