      I have yet to understand how it this is NDP's fault when it was clearly a misjudgment 1 and 2 the road was like that 4 years ago when VIP was in power and for years before that... grow some sense not everything is politics

      If VIP was in you would have blame them. So many things have to been done to the country not even VIP or NDP doing there job so they don't make sense to me. We need a new party where Alvin Christopher is not in it. New party new people only. Alvin Christopher has been crossing parties come on now.

    Those photos say a lot about the way our roads are built. If a wheel falls off the edge of the road, even just a little, the driver and any passengers could be in big danger. Never assume our roads have been properly designed or built with a soft shoulder on both sides to prevent exactly this type of thing from happening.

    One little mistake could be your last mistake. Stay focussed at all times people!

      It says a lot about the driver - if you look at the direction the car is pointing the driver was clearly on the wrong sie of the road. No matter how well a road is built you cant build them for idiots

    I hope whoever replaces the NDP in government shake things up and get this thing going. The BVI has become a big joke.
