    Why oh why did NDP Gov spend precious dollars taking out the traffic calming device that cost VIP gov precious dollars to put in?
    It wasn't perfect but it was going to slow a lot of these idiots down.

    there is no need for all this speed on this tiny island,imagine if they had to drive in the bigger islands they would not last a day.

    law enforcement on our roadways is lacking in the BVI; the commissioner have the police sitting in a room monitoring security cameras rather than having them walking our streets; we have persons operating vehicles in the night with out lights(in the city limits). it is common knowledge that persons exceed the speed limit one that airport road, fraser tried to fix the problem but we all know how that story goes.....

    A radar speed trap would slow things down and put much needed funds in the coffers. That stretch of road is like a race track, especially in the early morning, with lunatics overtaking on corners.

    All the speed bumps in the world won't help if the person in front of you decides to turn without using their indicator. Seriously people its not that difficult, just flick the stalk up or down and you can avoid a potential accident. BVI drivers seem to have hard time comprehending this...

    The problem is simple . Enforcement . If there is no one to enforce the law all the speed numbs and lights won't change anything. Hope all who were in the accident is safe...

      B.S. Speed bumps enforce themselves. I see few people deliberately speeding over speed bumps.

    looks like all u dumb people here want to see a police on every stretch of road in the bvi. how stupid. bvi people need to learn how to drive. u can't over take at a junction plain and simple traffic law.

    First of all bvi ppl learn to drive , use indicator, stop overtaking with speedd, if you cannot see what is coming do not overtake .. Secondly, please put some speed bumps, it might or may not help. And one more thing, to prevent serious accidents do not exceed over 40mph. My opinion. .. K
