    Why there is no centre line markings like most of the roads in Barbados ,this I think causes most of the accidents…no proper road management…

    Do not drive faster than your Angles can fly!! I do agree that all roads need to have paint marks, although this might not be a factor here. It is far less of an expense to the government but a big help to road users when trying to navigate our raggedy roads. I am not talking about a paint brush and a can, but using a paint machine which cannot cost a fortune. Driving with care helps , but having a perspective of the changing road layout, with all types of talent using it, helps to save lives. Most people love to fall rules.
