      @ No Name: I hear that! because the matter is getting worse day by day and apparently the police can not bring this issue under some form of control: I thought the department of police have a responsibility to safeguard the general public: this bike muck began with just a few bike riders totally disregarding our laws; if you look around the thing now a sickness: some of these bikers are a hazard to other road users and the police traffic department have this ting to be a joke: I am assuming the commissioner of police will also blame people of the territory for not sharing information with the police department about the bike riders, so his department cant solve this one either(run talk that!!!!!!)

    stop pointing towards the bike because the root of the problem is the enforcement of the road code(enforcement of the laws in our country is mind blowing; we have all manner of laws)

    Why do the police ignore these idiots on bikes?? When school is in and there are police present the riders without helmets just pass them by or stop right by them.Yesterday the moron who rides on one wheel and sticks his leg out in the air was going all the way down the highway to the roundabout.

    I see that young man too very regular. Sometimes I wonder if he’s tired of life a l pray that the powers that be would do something before it’s too late.

      Bigger Bikes, when the riders can't abide by the driving rules as it is, is a recipe for disaster, more deaths of idiots and innocents alike.

    The last two police who tried to enforce the law on a biker were basically charged with excessive force and abuse of power and were terminated from the force. Who is next? Just let them do as they please.

      @ not me: you conveniently omitted from your blog(that the police beat up the people): your level of conversation simply demonstrates that some of you are in the territory primarily for financial gratification(the job/work)and have no serious social interest: the police have a serious role to play in up keeping the social fabric of the British Virgin Islands: if folks who are assigned to law enforcement continues looks the other way and allowing crime & criminals to rule the British Virgin at the end of the day some of you can simply book a flight and leave this territory while some of we have to continue living in a disorderly society:(run talk that....)

    I was there. The road was blocked because of the accident. In the crowds looking at the scene a young man on a scooter without a helmet came down the sidewalk weaving in and out of the crowds. The police, all of them at the scene, did nothing.
