      Just really enforce the traffic laws that exist and fine the offenders with no new license of car stickers if fines outstanding. This will shape things up FAST!!

    Waiting to see how this plays out. The driver of the rental fled the scene, from being on the scene it is clear he caused the accident. Passengers in the other vehicles damaged and other motorist has given a description of the male driver. RVIPF do your job lets go! Black or white get the job done as some of you does treat cases based on skin colour. Enough Said..the BVI is watching...the world too

    Since the NDP removed that traffic calmer from beef island, there were several accidents on that stretch of road, 2 fatalities.
