    We are surely making a case for a fully paid health service with this recklessness on the roads. How do we expect the QEH to cope with this deluge of cases from these “accidents” along with its regular load of patients?

    It is totally preventable, people; stop driving like it is going out of style and pay attention to the road.
    After that just pray that one of those moptorcycle maniacs who are permitted to do as they please on the road don’t run into you.

    It isn’t a zr or minibus so the critics ain’t commenting,but I will.I agree with Mr.O Walrond ,too much mad selfish driving going on out on our roads.No one is braking to stop at major stops anymore,the slightest space and its coming out in front of you,is what’s going on.Texting and driving ,speeding up to get in front while approaching roundabouts,jambusting container trucks like they don’t have regards for their own lives and the list goes on and on.License given too easy these days for automactic vehicles,it should’ve been made a mandatory law, that persons should take the driving test on manual vehicles only including reversing in those poles in the Licensing Authority .Then one would think twice about coming out of gaps in front of others without stopping, because if you’re not in the right gear or don’t have clutch control the vehicle will stall ,but its too easy with Auto so people especially WOMEN drive as they please without any care.The traffic police need to be on the road in unmark vehicles to curb some of the lawlessness.

    Pure burden on QEH. Drive with due care and attention. Barbados is a dot and there is no need for the reckless driving on the highway.
