    Barbados has gone on prescribed road deathe. They must have one a day. Undertaking is big big business. If accidents don’t put them down. guns will. If not that, diabetes, cancer or heart failure.

    I blame the drivers for most of these road fatalities because of the speed they do. I will also say that I find people in barbados walk the streets with no regard for their lives. I read in the News that it will cost government (the people) 1/2ml to fix the lighting problem where that horrible accident happened. They mention how many light poles are down in the last 5yrs. One pole or light goes down, it`s not fix or replace, the 2nd, 3rd, 4th until they become 12 or more and now speaking of how much it is going to cost, I always hear a stich in time saves nine. I wonder who is at fault and even with lights they use don`t do much to help road users.
