      Sometimes I really wonder about some of these scooter riders....you can see them bopping and weaving out of traffic. I've even noticed a noisy arse DIRT BIKE being ridden up and down Huntum's Ghut and also in Road Town, I really don't understand why these rides like LOUD NOISY bikes....do they consider the community members who are trying to live peacefully in their homes???

      My dear I can count on one hand the number of scooter riders I have seen "adhering to the laws of the road". The majority are not... it's already treacherous on these streets with ppl who can't manage vehicles with 4 wheels. What careless scooter/bike riders don't understand is that WE CANNOT SEE THEM until they are along side us, infront of us or directly behind in the rear view mirror. That's why it's extremely dangerous to bob and weave. One wrong turn by someone in a vehicle can cause you your life. I was almost run over by two bike riders TONIGHT.... came out of nowhere from the opposite direction. I had to swerve to keep from hitting them both.

    They think the white line is their lane. They never get a ticket for this behavior so it continues. Not to mention no helmets and no license plates on many occasions.
