      If it was him that hit those people, he need to slow tf down. I had an experience with him driving like a lunatic , passing me and hurling curse words. He seem to have an anger issue and if his madman driving wasnt enough.

    I don’t know what’s going on in the bvi. No regard for pedestrians, people can’t even cross the roads where there’s cross walk is like the drivers want to knock you down. I see drivers full speed at a crosswalk and some are stopping on the cross walk, I’m not a driver but I think common sense must come in when driving even if it’s not the law. Where can pedestrians cross when the drivers stop on the crosswalk. It happen to me so many times. Right by eureka crosswalk and by the corner to go by Bobby’s. By the way , why put a crosswalk around a corner? We have to be more careful and so many police are being recruited, what for ? We are not seeing them on the road.

      To Wats Happening,
      I often though of this and wonder if it is not a law of the BVI. I see too many people doing it and I just shake my head.

      That crosswalk should be removed! It was only put there because of the stoplights that was placed there many years ago. The lights were removed but the crosswalk remained and it’s dangerous. There is a proper crosswalk just a few meters further down by Ismart. Minister Rymer, if you are responsible please see about this as many times accidents almost happen there.

      When they stop on the cross walks I'm always tempted to open the back door, crawl in and get out on the other side.

    Where is the 3 alarm fire that you have to always find the need to be driving like bats out of H*ll on the roads. You speeding drivers have to stop this. I hope the persons that was run over be all right.

    A lot of speeding and bad driving practices are happening on these unsafe roads in the BVI. It takes about 45 minutes to traverse from the farthest end of Tortola to the other yet people are speeding as if they are on major highways. People seem not to value their own lives, worse, yours and mine. Sadly, there seems to be no solution in sight. We blog when a story is posted and by the next day we're on to other crap. Smh.

    So very sorry for the pedestrians who were hit. That is the scariest thing to happen to anyone. I wish them well. To the driver...What is the big freaking rush? You have to answer questions now man. Too careless.
