Dancehall artiste Influential complains about 'Road Hogs'


Reggae artiste, Influential, is concerned about the high number of road fatalities in Jamaica over the past year, as the death toll resulting from fatal traffic accidents climbed to 305 in 2013, an increase of 17 per cent over 2012.

"The problem of safety on our roads is everybody's business and everybody should be concerned," said the artiste, who is known for the monster hit, Road Hog, which criticises the reckless drivers causing carnage on Jamaican roads.

The bloodletting on the nation's roads show no signs of abating as up to January 14, there have been 12 fatalities resulting from 12 crashes, compared to 10 fatalities resulting from eight crashes over the corresponding period last year.

"A few years ago, I did the Road Hog song to highlight what was going on in Jamaica, but the police need to step in and do something, and people need to change their behaviour because the road hogs are still killing our kids," he said.

On New Year's Day, he got a great forward for the Road Hog song during the 'Jah Love Surround Me' concert at Bumper Lawn in Claremont, St Ann. Performing on tracks, he immediately had the crowd jumping as he sang Road Hog. The crowd erupted into cheering with flags waving and blowing vuvuzelas. He was forced to pull up the song from the top and performed it again, and the ovations just got louder, drowning out the song. The selector then pulled up the song and he performed it for a third time as Bumper Lawn rocked and swayed, the forwards coming from every corner of the venue.

"The forwards are nice, but we still have to deal with the issue because it ah get outta control now in Jamaica, we need change, I don't want to read another news story about a crash that claimed innocent lives, especially those of children," he said.
