Two PSVs collide in St George

For the second time in the same number of days, two public service vehicles (PSVs) have been involved in a collision. Thankfully, on this occasion, no serious injuries were reported although three persons were transported to hospital.

This morning’s accident occurred at Eastland, St George between a minibus and a Transport Board Bus. The right side of the minibus bore much of the impact of the crash.

One Wednesday, 18 people, including a two-year-old boy, were left hurt following an accident at Maxwell Main Road in Christ Church, involving a ZR and a minibus. The injuries, though not life-threatening, have led to a renewed call from Roy Raphael, president of the umbrella Alliance Owners of Public Transport for a review of the age of PSV operators. The proposal is currently before Government for consideration as part of suggested amendments to the country’s road traffic laws.

    What the hell. is this going to happen every day.
    Please tell ,
    ARE THESE VEHICLES ROAD WORTHY,ARE THE DRIVERS QUALIFIED ENOUGH TO HANDLE THE VEHICLES.
    WE NEED TO HAVE A SPECIAL VEHICLE TESTING STATION , FOR THESE TYPE OF VEHICLES.
    WE ALSO NEED , A SPECIAL TEST FOR DRIVERS OF THE SAME AND , SPECIAL LICENSES GIVEN.
    Anyone because you have a driving license,should not be able to drive these buses.
    We seems not to have the bajans in barbados ,who are capable of managing the overall transport system.
    Too many issues, everything in barbados seems to be hard work, things around the world which is so easily done.
