      Something gotta be wrong with you. Right hand drive is what BVI supposed to be using. This the only country in the world that drive on the left with a left hand drive. You trynna make dysfunctional normal, but it's not!! They need to correct this.

        And this is the problem. When in Rome do as the f$233 Romans do. Do any of us go other islands and demand that left hand rive vehicles be used? No. Number one, we ain't going no where to spend EC$. Number two, we gonna fix it alright. Statistic speak for themselves. The more you all bring them, the more accidents you'll have and the faster we can bann them once and for all. This tactic of trying the flood the island with them, will not work. The 25% is not as dumb as you think they are.

      Based on your comment you should have your drivers license revoked........the driver entering he main road must do so only when it is safe to do so. This is not a hard case and if you don’t understand even that you should not be on the road.

    The JEEP has the right of way, so obviously it would slam into anything that doesn’t ensure the road is clear before coming into oncoming traffic. I suppose a belonger scooter rider wrote this article.

    Right hand drive are really suppose to be in vi cause we drive on the left to see opposite direction when overtaking

    The VI probably has more preventable accidents per capita in the world than any other place, causing avoidable personal injuries, property damages, lack of vehicle use/inconveniences and increased insurance cost. Now what is the speed limit in the area? The apparent damages give the impression that one or the other of the motorists may have speeding. The rate of speed on our roads should be commensurate with the conditions on the ground. Speeding in this location is reckless. Speed limits are set for a reason, ie, safety.......etc. Slow down, be safe, avoid property damages to other people’s property, injuring others and stay alive and healthy.

    Left hand drive vehicle have been driven in the BVI for years, never saw the kind of senseless accidents occurring like we do today. What I notice persons that drive these right drive vehicles drive in the middle of the road, there tire is over on the next lane, on the highway and I try to figure out why?? I try to avoid driving close to them

    The argument about right hand drive should be used because we are driving on the left is so lame. The only reason why this argument is put forward is for the purpose of overtaking and nothing else. But do we have to overtake? I have driven both right hand drive and left hand drive and personally driving the left hand drive give me a better judgment of the road, it give me the ability to keep dead left. The right hand drive makes me drive more in the center of the road because I don’t have a good judgement of the left side. I presently drive a left hand drive and when I overtake I do so when it is gives me a clear view of the oncoming traffic. Right hand drive can never be the perfect vehicle for these roads.

    I just don't get it why do we have to alway accommodate everybody else, In the BVI persons have been driving on the Left from time I know my self living in the BVI. Why is the Government allowing Righ hand Vehicles in the territory. all it is is a bunch of confusion for motorists. The person driving these right hand vehicle never on their side, and if im not mistaken majority of accidents now are due to right hand drivers. Please Please correct this matter stop the right hand vehicles from being imported please.

    I was standing outside Bobbys when this accident happened. The jeep was coming up from Scotia Bank side and the man in the car saw her coming and was trying to speed out before she passed. His quest to get ahead of her did not work and as she approached him she even blew her horn as he was not in the road, the moment she was about to pass he speed out in the road hitting her on the side of her jeep. The man in this car was dead wrong, I saw that for myself. The jeep did not slam in to nothing the car hit the jeep on the side by the drivers side tire.
