    Kill the illegal racing before the illegal racers kill again.

    What is going on all of a sudden these accidents are happening, I hope it is not what I am thinking, people lives are valueable and should be respected, are the drivers drunk or is it just being reckless, it needs to be looked into .

    All of a sudden? You all probably don’t drive here. I’m surprised this isn’t the norm.

    Until gov and politicians take reckless driving in Bim seriously and stop playing lip service expect more people to die in these kinds of accidents.Barbados wants to be a big fish on world stage but operates more like a tuna in reality.

    Too many people driving as if they don’t care. Just yesterday as I was driving up Kendal Hill I slowed to a stop because a gentleman was walking on the side of the road and there was a car coming down the hill from the opposite direction. The driver behind me, impatient because I choose to slow to a stop, overtook me and almost hit the oncoming car head-on. He even almost hit the poor pedestrian in his haste to avoid hitting the on-coming car.
    Taking chances like that and getting away with it doesn’t mean you are a good driver; it just means that your time to cause a serious accident hasn’t come yet.

    I may not be an engineer, but I don’t think the red car would be fold up like that if the driver wasn’t speeding.

    Rodeesia Singh. There are witnesses to the fact that he was indeed speeding and likely racing another car, and the damage to the car verifies that fact. Go be sick somewhere else.

    too many road accidents are happening

    The speed limit on that road is 80kmh. No amount of oil and sand can cause an all wheel drive car like a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution to leave its lane there unless that speed is SIGNIFICANTLY exceeded.

    Shane Emptage… I know you know that is not so, but the others on here may not.

    If that is an rs, they have thinner glass, less sound insulation and lighter interior trim than the GSR models only.

    Lord, what is Barbados coming to? Even though the roads are slippery when wet, some of these motorists always feel they got it covered without thinking twice. It’s like living life in the fast lane. Please slow down, peoples. My sympathy must go out to Troy Ifill’s family.

    Rodeesia… I don’t profess to know it all, but I do know that the Evo spun out of control, crossed into the oncoming lane and slammed backwards into the oncoming van at a very high rate of speed.

    Lack of due care and attention. Reckless drivers should be ban from driving for life.

    The point is that for that amount of damage, the type and location of the damage given the Evo’s original direction and the final resting place of the vehicle all point to MASSIVELY EXCESSIVE SPEED, not simply exceeding the speed limit.

    Anyone with a modicum of common sense can see that.

    Anyone who says otherwise has no credibility.

    That level of speed, on the public road, nowadays given the fact that the roads are almost never empty, all point to gross negligence and is deserving of the severest consequences.
