    jrsmith, would you please tell me a place where there are no road accidents or collisions ?
    You seem to think that none should occur in Barbados and that when they do, such accidents would never occur in your magical far away place, where drivers are highly competent and attentive anf their cars never fail MOT.

    Watchman , hail, hail , where i lived in the (UK) is not magical but a very busy , busy area , hundreds of vehicles an hour lots more than barbados and truthfully I haven’t seen an accident even a simple knock for knock in months…..
    Let me make this clear I am not comparing where I live with Barbados , all I would say to you if the enforcement of the simplest laws which is enforced here in the (UK) , was tried and enforced in barbados , we would have a massive reduction of fatal and serious accidents….We sure wouldn’t have 30,000 uninsured vehicles on barbados roads…
    As for the MOT bit, another good idea for barbados… lots of people is caught out and they vehicles impound and crush ….

    As I read the comments it does occur to me the comments lack an understanding of the root cause of accidents, which stems from gross negligence and carelessness. Please be informed, accidents are caused and just do not happen. Accidents can be avoided if Drivers would exercise more prudence and common sense, while driving. Think of the loss of life and injuries , the pain and suffering that precedes accidents.

    Both the pedestrians and drivers need to adhere tot he rules of the road. I see too many ppl just glancing and strolling across, and the drivers, are not polite to let them cross. Everyone is in a hurry these days. Hope the injuries are not too bad.

    When are the police, courts and insurance companies going to start sorting out reckless drivers?
    We need a dedicated traffic police force, if not then more uniformed police walking the streets, not flying around in their expensive cars and vans.
    Courts must suspend or even force drivers to re-take their driving tests before being allowed back on the roads.
    Insurance companies should be invoiced by the hospital, ambulance service and police every time they are called out to road traffic accidents.
    Insurance companies also need better underwriters, passing on any extra liability costs to the individual drivers responsible for driving up costs, rather than imposing higher charges on all drivers..
