    Clearly, there is a need for something to be done about the number of accidents involving minibuses. We visit Barbados every year and hire our own car. We have never set foot in any public transportation and that won’t change. We pick up our hired car at BGI and that’s that. Good Grief!! Why so many accidents, especially at the roundabouts??

    Drivers names should be placarded in the front dash board and a contact number posted at the rear of the bus to be called if unsafe driving is observed!
