    The $2 is clearly more important than the value of life that these psv transport daily no enforcement of the law seem to be able to control these psv as lives continue to lost and pain and suffering from multiple accidents i have no faith in those in control of these road dogs/hogs as they show that they are clearly not in control

    ZR will not overturned if it was being driven at a normal speed unless something was faulty on it. People should stop acting like cattle being driven to market and put a stop to those maniacs when they drive them like they are going to hell.

    What was he doing in Proute if he plies the Wanstead route? I don’t use ZRs, but if I used to I wouldn’t get on one which was going off route! Those who have been hurt will have a problem getting anything from the insurance company and probably not from the owner either!

      The people were at a picnic hence the “off route”

    @ Anthony Davis: why do ppls always think that when a ZR is not on the approved route that it is off route….why can it be that the driver has just left where the van is parked at nights, or on the way back to where it is kept…..just that the driver may have taken on passengers who live in that district…it happens all the time….not that they are right to do it, but that is what happens…I don’t like ZRs, nor how some drivers behave, but stop judging…..had you been a driver, you may do the same……

    @ Linda Fenty: Until you get a bad driving mishap, stop talking nonsense…I have been driving since ’77. and I had some strange things happen at speeds of 20 – 40…car spun around at that low speed for no reason at all, slid through a few roundabouts at less the 30, ran off the road as if someone else was driving the car, could not control it, all I could do was brake or switch off the ignition…..more that once…..so if you do not understand the crazy things that can happen while driving….so unless you know the reason for something, don’t judge….driving can be a hazzard….just a little oil or water on the road can cause some funny things to happen……

    just my two cents….
