ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- New kid on the block Tortola Auto Group (TAG), the official Hyundai dealer in the Virgin Islands, continues to make its impression in the territory, the latest being a Valentine's Car sales event where all four banks on the island were on location offering attractive deals.

The event was held on Friday February 12, 2016 and Saturday February 13, 2016 at TAG's Showroom and Service Centre at Slaney, on the main island of Tortola.

Virgin Islands News Online was on location on Saturday and noticed as bank representatives, especially from Scotiabank were kept busy as customers came in to see what was there for their liking and pocket.

They were also assured that that the dealership was ready to make orders on their behalf once their vehicle of choice was not in the showroom.

This was also assured by one of the partners of TAG, Patricia M. Romney. “We find this to be very successful. This is our first opportunity to showcase our venue and everyone can come and see our showroom.

“We just brought in a whole new fleet of vehicles and we invited in the banks. We have four banks represented here today and so far we are measuring it to be a great success.”

Davita N. Frederick, Sales and Service Representative of FirstBank, said customer flow was satisfactory.

She noted too that it was the first time the bank was partnering with TAG and that FirstBank would also have a car sale of its own during Emancipation Festival this year.

Scotiabank Managing Director Sarah L. Hobbs told Virgin Islands News Online the car sales event was going “really great” for the bank. “We are always happy to partner with TAG. I think we have a great representation and great rate going at 6.99% for the auto financing so we encourage our Scotiabank Customers and other customers to come and see what their options are. We have a great team here to serve them.”

First Caribbean International Bank and Banco Popular also supported the car sale.

    Tortola is 21 square miles. The number of cars that are presently on the road at any given point in time in a day is just too many for the size of the island. Is this really sustainable?

    Can we really handle this volume of traffic? Can everyone on this island be permitted to own and drive a car on a day to day basis? Many times the driver is the sole occupant of the car.

    When are we going to put a moratorium on the import and selling of new cars until we get this thing sorted out?

    Any person who cares about this country can see that this can't continue. Everyone over the age of 18 cannot own a car or two or three!

    Which ministry is responsible for this? Communications and Works?

    Where are the planners? What about Park and Rides? Are we familiar with these and how they can help us? Mr Vantec pool said some time last year that a building for parking will be erected in town. In the Heart of town. But is that the best plan? Parking and volume of traffic and all that accompanies such a high volume of traffic are separate and distinct. Do we not know this?

    The people who travel on our money, these same ministers and others; do they not observe how other cities manage their traffic? Do they actually take public transport and get a sense of how the cities are managed in this regard? What do they do when they travel? Why are we so arrested with this thinking that we are on the right path?

    Let's face it. We don't have any more space for any more new cars! We don't even have space for the ones on the road presently.

    But then again; every mouth must be fed, right?

      Streups and double streups. People always here talking piss about the number of cars. First of all there is no public transport and secondly the cost of taxis are very high and most of them won't even go where people live. Furthermore if I own three cars how will i drive all three at the same time. So what are people to do walk with their groceries and whatever else for miles on their backs while you drive around high and mighty in your BMW Lexus Audi or whatever chatting froth because you have 5 or 10 minutes of traffic when you get to Town? You better get back into your BMW, Audi, or Mercedes and drive on and leave the poor people struggling to make a buck.

    I went to the event - the vehicles were expensive. I have found better deals from most of the other dealers on Tortola. Look harder next time.
