    At any given point, I wonder how many Barbadian drivers and motorcyclists are stone-cold sober. Although there could be a myriad of reasons for these all-too-frequent wrecks, one does have to ask. It is interesting that we are rarely told the causes of these accidents. I don’t want to believe that the authorities are not looking at the “whys” of these accidents.

      Until there is mandatory testing be it breathalyzer or blood test they have no legal proof.

      Thanks. That sign was a distance off the road. Glad no one killed but something needs to be done about drivers after partying.

      It could have been a lot worse. At that time there are many people moving between the beach and Deacons. Had he “lost control” 150 yards further up there could have been more injuries.

    Boy if we dont do something about Barbados , I do not know what is going to happen. This inept Govt that is “led” or rather, headed by a Prime Minister who is not a leading man or a Leader IS NOT DOING ANYTHING TO MAKE BARBADOS BETTER

    @,Tony,W, hail, hail, good shot, @, Dave, the same way, I feel, the don’t care attitude, as if the management of Barbados LTD, is up to the people, must add, random , breathalyser checks, checks after accidents, spot checks on vehicles, bringing into to question , the competence of vehicle drivers, most head lines after accidents, drivers loosing control.

    Looks as though there’s an every day and night demolition derby on the island. Are children under fifteen safe while driving along with their parents and guardians? Be logical my friends and love ones the wheel is certainly not the donkey range.

    Drivers in BARBADOS always had a reputation for fast driving even buses…., Overtaking (as they named it passing out each other ) taking corners at speed … that is not good driving. driving….Some of the roads are narrow…

    The police and bad managing insurance companies , should now check the evidence , that this vehicle was racing with other car, identify this other car and they both should be charge with dangerous driving and the insurance company ,should not cover the damages , to this vehicle.

    I applaud this person who , I think is acting in the interest of safety to other road users. this is a case which bajans should keep pace with.
