    You know…these ramped-up accidents, make a lotta sense, viewed from all angles, like:-
    1: human toll: deaths, wrecked families, and/ or permanent disabilities; Inability to continue working etc.
    2. Personal financial losses/ costs: replacement/ repairs to one, or two vehicles.
    3: national costs: extra strain on “free” medical attention, medicines; at Q.EH.; rehab; crutches, wheelchairs etc.
    4: FURTHER depletion of F/X current balances, when a replacement vehicle is imported.

    We must have a lot of very intelligent Bajans, hereabouts, and nowabouts. While several ministeries therefore have a vested, joint interests, in such matters, we never hear from ANY of such folks, that having reviewed the availed facts , and statistics from all sources ( I suggest that the Insurers, and the R.B.P.F. Would ( or could, and should) be compiling sufficient and pertinent data on the prime causative factors arising in our accident- toll ( yes, we appreciate that individual accidents cannot be publicly dissected as ” legal toes” might be mashed) but aggregated analyses MUST be possible), and could be key to showing how to go about sundry actions to ameliorate this madness.

    What, exactly, are we waiting for? A drunk lunatic to plunge into the P.M.’s car? Or with all hands now “busy on deck”… Just leave it all in the hands of our hard- working , Pro-Bono, Road Safety Associstion President?

    SHANE ON YOU “Relevant” ministers!
