    In these difficult times it is very important for drivers to be more responsible while driving on the road. It is important to display Care, Courtesy, Consideration, Common-sense and Compassion for others. Drivers need to be fined whenever they destroy the utility pole and pay the cost of replacement of the said pole or poles.

    What does the nationality/ethnicity do the driver have to do with anything? Why do all of your articles have to state if someone is Caucasian, Filipino, etc? What happened to One BVI? Get with the program VINO. We can do a lot more together.

    Anybody notice that we have tons of utility poles on the island that have no active utility attached? Utility poles with miles of hanging cable wire are an eye sore and as these do not serve any purpose I believe that it would do our tourism product wonders to remove them ASAP.
