      Looks like eight people want some insurance money. That motorcyclist probably bobbed and weave in front of that plastic bag PSV. That’s a busy road at that time so that plastic bag PSV could not be speeding.

          Miche … A bout 15 years ago I was driving a brand new expensive Beemer I received that same day. around 8:00 p.m. that same night, leaving Tweedside Road , going arount the Globe roundabout, a rasta fellow bobbed and weaved in front of me tearing off the entire front bumper of my vehicle. He ended up in front of Acme Engineering lying there motionless. A little crowed gathered and someone shouted “he dead.. de driver kill he.” “mek he pay some money . look , de car brand new an num still got de new smell.” O got out to check de fellow. rthen I said I’m going to call the police. The fellow suddenly sprang up and begged me not to involved the police. He agreed to have the bumper refitted. The next day that fellow met me at Warren Motors, Handed me $ 5000.00 in cash and told me to call him if it cost more. Well it costed me just about $600.00 to fit back on and when I called him to return the balance he told me not to bother, he organized. I told him I don’t operate like thaty. He told me to choose any charity or give it to the church or the poor. I do not even recall his name. He nor my vehicle had a bruise. wuh yuh she now Miche?

          The rider was a postman. The next thing I hate about accidents is that before the police could get to speak to the family, a bunch of yahoos got the entire thing over the internet, as if they are getting a fortune for being first with the news. And they have no care for the families of the injured. The police should handcuff all who turn up at the site with a cellphone in their
          hands.

            @Patricia Harvey, when the bombing at the marathon in Boston some years ago the police was asking anyone that had taken pictures with their cell phone or what ever to check and see if they had capture anything that look suspicious and I know for sure they had a person with a backpack at the scene, its a good thing that you don`t have any power to handcuff anyone.

    One of every two accidents involves minibus or a Zr. When will the laws be changed and enforce before a whole bus load loses their lives?

    May the injured have a speedy recovery.I don’t no why some people sit and cast blame only on minibus and zr drivers,yes there are many who drive with out care and consideration,but there are government vehicles on the roads of barbados that there drivers perform many illegal acts daily and people seem to have cataract. I was in a zr one day at a junction in a certain area and a bus traveling to a particular route had to make a turn at that same junction, although the bus driver saw the road was block and he could not make a clean turn, he still turned and hit the zr, he could have injured people in the zr and the driver of the bus did not even get out and look to see what damage he had caused he just drove along. If that was a zr or minibus everybody would want to keep noise smh.

      The fact of the matter is that most ZR drivers have only fat between their ears. All they know is the next $2. So the lives of their passengers mean nothing to them. Heck! Their own lives don’t. And along with bad driving, they think it is the thing to drink. In this Bim, 95% of all accidents are alcohol-related and has been so for years.
      Lesson: When you soak a fool in alcohol, the result is always a wreck.

    Bajans are slowly killing themselves practically and economically. Said I wonder why now, we’re struggling so. There’s no heating to pay, so why can’t we SLOW down. More and more we’re hearing–‘When those crazy Barbadians learn to slow down then we’ll go’.

    Again! What is wrong with some of the drivers in BIM? There need to go back to driving school or permanently ban the reckless drivers. Barbados is a small island and to be having so many accidents it’s absolutely ridiculous. I which the speedy wunna put in driving wunna use in WORK.
