CANE GARDEN BAY, Tortola, VI- In what is a frequent occurrence at that location, a vehicle ended up stuck in a drain on Cane Garden Bay Hill sometime last night, February 11, 2018.

It appears that the driver made the same mistake as others that suffered a similar fate have done- turned too early while exiting Brewers Bay into Cane Garden Bay.

There have been no reports of injuries.

It was on June 4, 2017 that an SUV fell in that same drain while attempting to turn into Cane Garden Bay Hill from Brewers Bay.

The drain is not visible to drivers when making a right turn when exiting Brewers Bay. Most of the vehicles that have fallen in the drain were driven by tourists or persons not familiar with the area, according to reports reaching this news site.

    Those are driver errors. They can't drive. It is plain to see. Number one they are on the wrong side of the road.

      Very Very true. My initial thoughts. But is it still a danger and needs to be fixed.

    Poor and unsafe road design. The turning radius/circle is too tight. Secondly, the drain should not be part of the turning circle. The drain should have a head wall that is clearly marked. Why does PWD have to wait until VINO highlights a problem to react? Or worst a either a pedestrian or motorist is injured or killed to act? C’mon Bummer! Where is the pride and professionalism. Furthermore, where is the high level of quality service that taxpayers deserve? Safety must comes before all else. C’mon Mark! You are responsible for this poor level of service? C’mon Premier! You are ultimately responsible and accountable for this poor level of service. You also have the authority to act to effect change. Taxpayers, residents, and visitors deserve better road services. It is not an open secret that the roads are in a horrific and despicable deteriorated condition. Let’s quick wasting money on poor design, construction and maintenance. We borrowed $16M before the devasting hurricanes yet before the hurricane the money dun but roads were in horrible consdition. The taxpayers are sick and tired of being sick and tired of the horrible road conditions.

      You have no idea what you're talking about. You can clearly see they are on the wrong side of the road trying to make that turn

    Common sense, put a guardrail at that corner painted yellow, then if people run into it they are just blind and shouldn’t be driving anyway. It is obvious not all people know it is there, but regardless, just put a rail there, it will only take one day.

    How is that possible when they should be more to their left side.? I have seen some crazy driving that has left me with my mouth wide open. Where do some of these drivers learn to drive?? Some of them really need to redo the road test because this one is a how?.

    Why are they on that side of the road to make that left turn people just can't drive. Has nothing to do with bad road design
