    The digging up of these roads over and over wasting tax payers money is criminal. Especially after just paving them.

      Some years ago, one sped up to block me from merging and end-up colliding with the vehicle in front. So I simply reversed and merged behind and around her. Kudos to the other drivers who let me merge.

      I sympathize with the innocent driver she hit, but always have a good laugh whenever I see that bi%ch.

    Sad story in our territory even the in queens clothing who should give more respect to the road was in a road rage next to the high school junctionYesterday afternoon. What a shame. I had a lot of respect for her but for a simple matter she lost that respect. Mr. Commissioner these are the type of people that we look up to. Please send this woman to an anger management class I wonder if she flip. On duty or off duty once you have on the Queen's clothing you need to respect your self.

    How many times in last two years this same road has been dug upp....Let me count.. 3 times.., This is the real issue. The accident is minor. The amount of tax payers money is wasted can buy new cars for half of us... Once you are driving accident will happen. However bad road conditions is an increase factor.

    We avoid rush hour. Drivers are fools. No need for not being polite and not observing rules & laws. If Police could issue all wrong doers a ticket, the BVI would not need new taxes!! Do not tax the honest, catch-up with the dishonest and law breakers and let them pay!!! Tell me why not.

    too many impatient drivers with the incorrect attitude. Manners maketh man. Learn to respect other road users, and the majority of accidents will not be happening.
