      glad no one was hurt.
      why is there a hummer on island anyway? it is most impractical what with gas prices and is a symbol of arrogance, kinda like the BMW roadster which is also impractical. Ohhh.... sorry I know who owns that one.

        This is a real silly question... If you can afford the vehicle and the gas to put in the vehicle you can buy whatever vehicle you want.. It is a free country.. Stop asking arrogant questions

    Those two corners by paraquita bay are notorious for drivers coming around the corners and not being on their side of the road. I have had to come to complete stops several times at those two paprticular corners because people literally come around the corners on your side of the road. Does not surprise though Tortola roads are a free for all now. Travel on them at your own risk......

    Tourists are hearing through online sources about how bad the drivers are on Tortola and are thinking twice about renting cars.Police need to enforce existing laws.
