    Some of those truck drivers don't take into account the size of the roads for 1, and the speed they're moving! The BVI needs more rules, and policing JUST FOR those heavy equipment vehicles mannn!

      From the picture it looks like the Truck was turning, if the front wheel and the position is any indication.
      There're a few turn offs in the area. The SUV may've been surprised by the Truck around that corner.

    Every morning there is a Blue school bus that speeds down this road heading West around 7.40/8am always speeding round corners on the wrong side of the road with a bus full of children. One day its going to end in disaster. Speed Cameras, Speed bumps or Police Patrol is needed on the West End road. He will kill someone soon!

    All the roads needs to "yellow lined" in the center. Makes it easier to navigate especially since that roads are so narrow already.
