      Imagine, you see a report of an accident, have no idea how it happened but makes an assumption it was alcohol related.
      So we in Barbados are now uncivilized because we don’t have breathalyzer laws?
      How civilized are those countries with mass killings, or where it’s open season on unarmed black people by Police.
      I’ll take my uncivilized Bim without breathalyzer laws any day….stupse.
      You can have the last word.

    Here we go again, I don’t think these vehicles are road worthy, when is an independent vehicle examiner, going to be brought from outside Barbados to do the honours let us know the facts , no cover ups.
    But this will never happen ,because of the people who are involve with the importation of these vehicles. but we know when a close family member of one of the big ups get , injured is when something will be done.

    @,Adrian, chase, car accidents is a happening all over the world and one major issue is the matter of drinking alcohol and driving, in countries where lots of our bajan people make they homes, this issues is big on the agenda , when accidents occur any time.

    Why would you consider, bajans are uncivilized, because of not having this type of enforcement , that’s our problem , Barbados is Barbados, I would personally want and wish the best for our bajan people, some of us follow and adopt the most stupid behaviours from the US, but that is alright.
