    the highways on Tortola have no police and it is evident some bike users ride right by police departments without helmets on uninsured bike nothing happens. It is amazing how some folks on bike can continue to be up and down all day simply violating the law of the land. Must say some bike users ride in accordance with the traffic laws. Where is the police traffic department we seeing the rapid response unit back & forth

    The majority of bike riders can not handle their small bikes safely so why even consider bringing in more powerful ones ????
