    About four or five vehicles were damaged in the collision. These large trucks are being operated in a very menacing and reckless manner. I witnessed an animal being willfully injured by one of these vehicles the other day. Some restrictions need to be put in place.

      Passerby, You are so correct. It's High time we have this looked into, garbage trucks run you off the road, I had to reverse on a hill recently after meeting large truck on a narrow road on a hill closely, no horn blowing nothing, the speed these operators drive with around corners leave not room for correction in the event it's needed.

    The said big truck is not licensed, no insurance, brake lights are non functional. Punish to the fullest extent of the law.

    Those big trucks always speeding going no where. Some drivers no longer has due care and consideration for other motorists and pedestrians.

    Not good, but what else can we expect in a land of no consequence? There is no enforcement of traffic laws at all (other than tinted window stuff), as evidenced by many of the comments above. Nobody likes to be pulled over by a traffic cop, but in places where such exist, people tend to be more compliant. At the end of the day, this is a safety issue. Sooner or later people get killed, injured or maimed if people (especially those in large vehicles) drive whatever way they want like do here.

    I was also there, the truck man was speeding, vehicles stop in front of him and he couldn't stop, he manage to hit only one vehicle before he collide against the tree next to RTW car park. lucky no one was on the sidewalk at that time.
