    People driving within the speed limit do not normally get in to road traffic accidents. We need police in uniforms on the ground.

    Some of the feedback I am receiving from a prominent Swiss travel office is that Barbadians are much too speedy on their few highways and on the village streets as well.

    When are you people gonna come around to the fact that’s not speed or drunk drivers who are causing these accidents. If the bajans want to shift the blame to this group so be it, but in the mean time, accidents will occur and people will die unless the ordinary citizens stop being so selfish and stupid on the roads.
    There is a passive aggressiveness that is part of the Barbadian way of life, this is not dissimilar to what is meted out to each other by civil servants and others providing a service to blacks, these people don’t present this attitude to white people.
    So many times I’ve observed Bajans motorist using the roads in Barbados as if they’re in their private driveways, with total disregard for other road users. Just a few years ago I’d noticed most motorist at nights dimming their high beams as on coming traffic approaches, now every gully monkey is barreling ahead with high beams heedless of the dangers they pose to others. Keep blaming others and don’t be our brothers keepers…We’ll see each other in hell soon enough, Unless this administration choke us to death first.
