    With the small roads and careless drivers, I`m surprised that they`re not more vehicle fatalities per day in Barbados. Where are these people going in such a hurry? maybe to Atlantic City.

    I do not know if my theory is correct but since the introduction of the cell phone ban there seems to be an increase in accidents. Everyday I see accident all over the place. I wonder if the attempt at sneakily using phones is a major contributor. Imagine this,…. phone in lap so eyes darting up and down, phone slides off lap, user tries to retrieve phone from on the floor or from between seats etc. all the while keeping an eye on the road for the police enforcers, who by the way think this is some kind of cloak and dagger game, hiding and popping up to catch people red-handed. Then like a scene from catch-me- if-you-can, motorist drops phone behind the seat or in handbag all the while eyeing the approaching cop. As soon as the enforcers leave the search for the phone commence and continues all the way around the roundabout….gotta luv Bajans.

    A great pity: apparently, another avoidable tragedy.

    One more time, the essentials for every caring driver/ vehicle-owner:
    1. Good tyres, correctly inflated.
    2. Good brakes.
    3. Good steering.
    The non-mechanical issues:
    Stay alert at all times.
    Avoid in-car distractions.Yes, all.
    Driving on wet roads and at night: SLOW down.
    Road congestions/delays: leaving early cud save a life….your own.
