    What’s crazy 99.9% of the bikers don’t have a registered bike or have insurance. 99.9% of the time is us the taxpayers who have to cover their hospital bills. 99.9% of the bikers NOT contributing to the community; except for making unwanted noise here and there..

    Many times in the past when other concerned citizens have warned and speak out against ruthless and crazy motorcle riders, we get low positive responce. But often times some foolish jokey things are bloged, many likes are awarded. Crookedness can't stand up for too long. However, My deepest sympathy to the peddle biker that got hurt badly by a wreckless motorcyclist. I hope that the injured man will speedily and fully healed, and that justice be fully served in this and orher sumilar cases.
    Understand this my fellow Virgin Islanders, these happening etc. need urgent responce, now, now, now! Promises not good enough.

    Unacceptable! He left the man there to possibly die! May the victim survive and heal leaving no permanent damages. My goodness, at the speeds these motor bikes are speeding, I know they could easily kill someone not having the protection like a car. I feel so sorry for the victim. I hope they catch him and he goes to jail for a long long time.

    I saw S**** C** son from Bauhers Bay up by Nanny Cay looking at the accident and trying to get a ride so most likely it was him who fled the scene of the accident.

    There is only 1 solution for this...BAN THE SCOOTERS.

      Actually that's not true. You could flame thrower them, shoot them, gas them, hang them, crush them with huge wooden teddy bears, guillotine them with the screws from cruise liners, throw then in a pit of Kimodo dragons, make them watch US TV for a year, all sorts of awful things. Please be more accurate and creative with your posts.

    About a month ago a scooter ran down a man almost killed him today same thing, for years now I'm saying it needs a speed bump by the garbage bin, look like they wating for someone to get killed before they put one very dangerous crossing the road to and from the supermarket, that's all I have to say,

    Someone needs to set up a survey monkey for the subject of banning scooters or at least imposing stricter legislation. Governments only care about votes so let’s show them the numbers

    These damn scooter fools, should not be hard to lift finger prints from the abandoned machine and prosecute to the fullest extent of the law.

    By caucasian do you mean white? The guy probably ran off with no insurance! He needs to be found and convicted fir the injuries tho this guy. These bikes need to be banned.

    This is yet another reason why we have issues with bikers! The irresponsible riders are making it difficult for responsible, legitimate, helmet wearing, licensed and insured riders. How could you collide with someone and leave the scene? Who knows, it could have been the fault of the rider who was pedaling but the rider leaving the scene shows that he is irresponsible and has no respect for law nor man

    What difference does it make what color the bicyclist's skin is?
