    No vehicle travelling within the speed limits would look like this, unless attacked.
    We need a dedicated traffic police service, on the roads 24/7. We also need speed cameras.

    There is video footage from a house showing the brake lights on the bus while it was coasting on the road. Don’t be so quick to judge. He did his best to stop it.

    All drivers from private cars to city buses drive way too fast and very recklessly.. we’ve been travelling to barbados for 20 years and it’s only getting worse.

    So many times I’ve observed these fools driving these buses at a speed that is so not right, I often wonder would this be so had the buses been their own or were they to foot the bill for mechanical repairs. Also, the travelling public would be afforded a much better chance at getting a bus at a slower rate of speed. One is making their way to a bus stop only to see the bus acting like an emergency vehicle minus the flashing lights and sirens.
    I should imagined there is some technology to monitor the speed at which these vehicles travel.
    Another thing, what the hell is wrong with these bus drivers and the high beams even when stopped at a bus stop?

    Sometime ago a driver with over 50 motor convictions came up in court. Whatever happened to him?
    Our top notch newspapers never tell the outcome of court cases, a basic in news reporting.
