      YOLO,you took the words out of my mouth or rather fingers. Lots of folks like the bandaid (speed bumps ) rather than looking at the real issues with the roads in the Virgin Islands

      I agree. With no markers or curbs, as was said, with the high beams accidents can happen. Those reflectors should be placed from the airport to Fish & Lime.

    based on the damage in most of these accidents; speeding contributed to the accident
