    My experience is, some persons are definitely driving to cause accidents. I don’t know if its insurance money they are after, but when they have caused you broken bones, soft tissue injury or even death, what help will that be to you?
    I also think that the relevant authorities should install cameras at these stop lights as too many persons are breaking them. This is one sure way for the government to collect extra revenue which could help pay the policemen. Too much recklessness on the streets.
    Some times at these stop lights your side is saying go and the person from the other end is still boring through and you are left scrambling to get out of the way before the other persons from the opposite end who have the right of way can proceed unencumbered.
    Another thing there is too much road rage at these blinking lights
    where some persons are not allowing traffic that is not on the straight to gain access or merge. You are at their mercy. I think the authorities should try to have the lights fixed as soon as possible, especially those at the University West Terrace junction.
    I also experienced serious difficulty with those at Eastmond corner last week.

    My sympathy goes out to the family of this young girl
    whose life has been snatched.
    May God grant them the strength to bear this loss. So very sad.
