    Sad for the family but barbadians have the bad habit of crossing roads at the back of buses. As a result cannot often times see cars coming from the opposite direction. We were taught growing up always walk the road towards coming vehicles and never try crossing a road from the back of vehicles.
    As a driver on our roads today we have to drive for ourselves and other reckless drivers on the road and be alert and watch out for pedestrians.
    We need to make our roads safer for each other and avoid another family facing these heartaches at the lost of loved ones.

    My condolences goes out to the family. Parents we need to remind our children they should NEVER cross the road from behind or in front of a bus. I am a witness of one of the same incidents when I was a child going to school and as an adult I can still remember getting off the bus with my friend who did the same thing, fortunate for her it was not her time to die.
