    What are the issues surrounding vehicular accidents. in Barbados. Bad roads, vehicles not properly serviced, and maintain. The level of driving is not up to standards, are these accidents because of alcoholism. are drivers who cause accidents to persons not being sued. is it as like in the UK , where you can pay someone to take your driving test for you. As for me personally, what I notice about lots of the vehicles ,I wouldn’t risk taken a ride in them. notice the ball tyres, so bad you can see the white thread.

    @jr smith!!!! I am not sure of where you are living, but even the NEW cars that are in Barbados would not be allowed into either Canada or the USA as there are practically no STANDARDS set for them. They seem to Disintegrate even when in a Slow speed Collision.
    Maintenance is a JOKE for Cars in Barbados, and there are no SAFETY CERTIFICATES needed to register a Car in Barbados. all Cars that are to be driven on the Roads SHOULD have to pass a SAFETY CHECK before they can be Licenced and Insured for the Road. NOT SO at Present.
    so consequently there are LOTS of cars on the Roads in Barbados that are actually ACCIDENTS waiting to happen. No one seems to care very much.
    Meanwhile here in Canada. i have to have an emissions test ever so often before i can get my vehicle on the road, and if i sell it to someone it MUST pass a SAFETY CHECK before it can be put back on the Road. None of this is done in Barbados.
    And yes !!! The Drivers are Horrible, they Obviously don’t have to pass the same QUALITY of test that i took when i got my Licence.
    The Roads dont help much either, and you are right about the Tires, 90% of the older cars in barbados would Fail a Safety Check because of the Tires alone.
