    This seems to be the year of accidents. Last year it was sudden deaths. I’m Wishing everyone well. Hope no serious injuries. We have to be more attentive on the road and learn to give way sometimes. It’s amazing how courteous drivers are in Canada. I’ve been at intersections and wonder how these people know who goes first. I finally figured it out. Being attentive and diligent. We must emulate this practice

    More fast food more fast cars. Heavy duty traffic and more collisions on our tiny streets. Politicians remain silent and fat from back-room deals. I think it’s a job to be impartial and provide a fair and thorough assessment of what’s happening on the ground from the perspective of what I’m able to see. And looking into my crystal ball I see more accidents, amputations, obesity, lung cancer and the list goes on. It’s time for us to…wake up and live.

    @, Seagul, hail, hail , well said, blame the politicians , I use to lay blame on motorist in Barbados ,but seeing in all cases there is no road management…
    One thing most roads dont carry the centre white line , I will bet if this was put in place with cats eyes , we would see a massive reduction in accidents…….
    @, Aneta , hail , hail, if I had pointed that out and said in the (UK) some people as I would give they stage names would have fire shot at me comparing Barbados to the UK,
    The idea is how good you are a driver, in (Canada) they drive on the right and traffic you give way to the left, in the (UK) we drive on the left hand giving way to traffic on the right always..
    But in barbados good road management is required, simple cheap technology in place and enforced would prevent lots of accidents and save lives…….
    White lines….
    Cats eyes …
    Speed limits and cameras…
    Road humps..
    Road width restriction signs ,which allows a single vehicle every time….
    Speed control informers which warns the driver what speed he/she is doing referring to speed limit……..
    We just need to step into the 21st century…….

      White lines, Yellow lines, double lines, signages are all in a bad state and they are not international standard. I passed a road this morning and this road has 4 crossings, they painted 2 in the first 4 hrs and put cones around it to divert the traffic so they will probably return after midday and do the other 2, those 4 crossings took a day to complete and in a week or so they would be not be visible. What a waste of the taxpayers money.

    They are accidents between camels in the desert daily, and there’s no congestion on the desert roads. I said that to say that they’re accidents in each country in this world everyday. So really let’s just get on with our lives. Vehicular traffic has increased and so will accidents. Once we build more houses when they’re occupied we will have more break ins. With development comes an increase in every area. It’s called social development, so stop focusing on the things we can’t change and address what we can change.

      @Greengiant, any one with half of a brain would know that accidents will occur but barbados 21×14 mls and with roads that can`t accommodate the 2 bicycles riding side by side and the speed that they drive at on the roads like they always in a hurry, you would believe that they are on I-95 in New Jersey.

    @jrsmith – you might as well throw in box junctions. There are some selfish drivers in Bim who see a gap and put their car and block it off preventing cars from turning in or out thereby holding up traffic. Use cameras to obtain addresses and post a ticket too.

    @jrsmith!!!! Had any other Dreams last Night???

    @Sonia Small!!!! These are NOT Accidents, They are Collisions caused by Incompetant Drivers.
