    Speed is not an element in every crash.

    What do you suggest the government do?

  7. Vernon Chandler November 23, 2015 at 12:53 pm

    Lol. And exactly what is the government/police to do about anyone it? The govt already put the laws in place making it unlawful to drive over a certain speed limit, & the police already charge people who are caught going over that limit. What more can they do? Drive behind every car on the road to ensure that they don’t speed?

    @,Vernon, hail , hail, what an attitude, most organise police forces dealing in traffic management, around the world , deploy cameras, to enforce the laws for speeding ,and many other easy ideas, which seems to be as like mountains to climb, in Barbados. they don’t have to follow ,decent vehicle drivers who is not carrying big attitudes and lawlessness.

    Why do people fail to understand that ‘accidents’ are just what there are, accidents. It can happen to anyone and in many cases are due to the inattention or distraction of a driver, a medical emergency can also be the problem because we are all human.

    The most disturbing of accidents are those in which a driver without regard for life or property gets drunk or ‘drugged’ and drives in a manner to cause damage and even death and he/she walks away unharmed or also dead.

    The police cannot be everywhere and there is ever so much the government can do except to make sure that the highways are properly maintained. Whenever there is a police officer on patrol handing out summonses for speeding drivers, there is a backlash when someone who think they may be driving about five miles over the limit gets a summons. “Ohh! why did he give me a ticket? it was the first time I went over the limit, he should be out looking for the young boys speeding everyday” are usually some of the comments.

    Drivers have to be constantly aware of ALL ROAD conditions, make sure their vehicles are well serviced and in GOOD OPERATING condition, ie. Brakes, tires, etc etc. look out for pedestrians, and be courteous, courtesy is one factor I must say is part of the culture of the Bajan driver. Yet it must be taken into consideration the number of vehicles on the road and last but of most important, when driving always expect the driver of the other vehicle will do something stupid.
    Happy motoring.

    @,Chris,W, hail, hail, you are a bit all over the place, a police officer on patrol handing out speeding tickets, that’s a long , long time ago, research show, in countries where many simple ideas and electronic devices are used, one speed camera does the job of 5.6 policemen , with a hit rate of 98.5%,
