    If blood will flow when flesh and steel are one
    Drying in the colour of the evening sun
    Tomorrow’s rain will wash the stains away
    But something in our minds will always stay
    And all this speed is like dark clouds….like sargassum on our income—we are fragile people.
    Some will suffer and some will burn
    But I know one day they will learn………..Soul

    Barbados accident madness, what are the causes.
    Unroadworthy vehicles, speeding, bad driving attitudes, people who cannot drive, the use of cell phones, and any other road problem.

    What I cant understand , the persons who suppose to manage the traffic on our roads , where are they, what is wrong , in Barbados , technology is there to help, rules , regulations, all simple and effective to prevent this driving madness.

    My take, first step , speed limits, on motorways ,enforcement (CAMERAS) fines and driving bans.
    Speed limits in villages, road humps/ sleeping policemen. continuous random stop by police, this becomes so effective,
    police will check the car, road worthiness, drunken driving, driving without licence, or insurance, car search , stolen property, guns, drugs, stolen vehicles, this is all simple applications but very effective.

    @jrsmith!!!! if that was a Multiple Choice Exam, my CORRECT answer would be, F:all of the above

    You asked:What I cant understand , the persons who suppose to manage the traffic on our roads , where are they, what is wrong ??

    The Answer, they have all become Bureaucrats, which means sitting behind their desks for their tours of Duty, and NOT venturing out into the Real World, then they go back home after.

    You Stated: technology is there to help, rules , regulations, all simple and effective to prevent this driving madness. Yes you sre so right, but none of it is being or has been used, because someone’s FRIEND might be snared if that was done.

    In my Present Jurisdiction we have RED LIGHT Cameras, if your car trips the Camera, you are consider a red light runner and you get a $375.00 Ticket in the mail, if not paid by a certain time you will not be able to register your car for the road when it comes due, unless that fine is paid and it would have increased with a Late penalty.

    The Highway speed limit in Barbados are OK, any slower on the ABC and you will have Mayhem. all is needed is a Highway Patrol to enforce the Rules and Regulations as they pertain to The Motor Vehicle and Road Traffic act.
    I am just back from a Month on the Rock and i travelled that ABC Highway NUMEROUS Times, and i would be lying if i could tell you how many times i saw any police of any type on that Highway.
    the only time i saw police whilst iwas there was when there was an accident in Codrington Hill and the van came from District “A” which is not far from my House.
    there were Police in Swan Street, who refused to take a complaint from a Citizen about a fight about 200yds from them, until one of the Combatants ran past them, then they reacted, only too Late.
    seems to be a common thing with the Police in Barbados, In the Eversley Murder the Bus Driver showed an off Duty Policeman who was on the Bus , the Man and woman struggling in the field and the Policeman chose to do Nothing, that ended up with the Woman Murdered. if that is investigated and found to be True beyond any doubt, he should be fired from the RBPF, as off duty Policemen?Women are still Policemen/Women, and should still try to stop crimes in Progress.That’s not my Business is NOT an option for Policemen on or off Duty.

    have a friend in England who entered a street and exited at the other end, a few weeks later he got a summons in the mail to pay a speeding charge, and was flabbergasted, until he found out that he was clocked when he entered that street and when he exited, and it was from that, that it was determined that he was driving too fast, as he exited before he was supposed to, an old fashion speed trap technologically enhanced, it needed no human interaction, this is just to show how other places enforce traffic rules, we don’t need to go that far , Brathalizers, Radar Guns, and LEGAL Stop and Search is all we need for now.
    MONITORED Street CCTV Camera would also help, when lasi i read, thjere are over 6000 CCTV Cameras in Metropolitan LONDON alone.
    WE NEED a revamping of our Traffic Devision.

    Stewart Hill is a by way that needs due care and attention when attempting to enter the bends, both parties should exercise caution when traversing the byway. Reduction of speed climbing and descending is the important factor.
