      Easy solution is not to pay for their treatments any longer, sorry it may sound cruel but its the logical choice

    These bikers are ridiculous. They continue to ride without helmets, weaving in and out of traffic with no regards to anyone's safety. Police just ignore them. Recently on Beef Island there were 3 of them racing down the stretch. I saw a police vehicle and I actually stood by waiting for the drama! Police pass just like that. No stopping no warning no checking for licenses helmets nothing! This country is a free for all! Totally backwards!

      The stretch from Big Ben's Gas Station to the speed bump by Driftwood Spa is a drag racing track. The hurtful thing is the police are parked by the station looking at those careless scooter and car drivers.

        the same asphalt used to make a speed bump could fill five potholes. Don't need speed bumps. it needs a speed trap. Police could patrol that area with some radar guns

      Because their children have bikes as well so they wouldn’t bother.. especially at nights they literally force you to stop and wait until they organize their races on the beef island stretch!!! They wouldn’t stop until someone really keeps driving and knock their backside out the way

    I saw this happen, if you going ride a bike you need to learn how to ride a bike. It was 2 scooter man passing by festival grounds speeding. The one scooter man swerved left and went around the lady crossing the road. The second scooter man just try hit brakes and run right into the woman. The scooter man that hit the woman could have swerved right and crash by himself in the bushes separating the doulcarriage way. But instead he just went straight and pow right into the lady trying to cross the road.

    Law enforcement are allowing these little monsters to get away with their nonsense. It empowers them making them feel big and bad and they move with no respect for the law nor anyone. It needs to stop or we will be totally out of control with them. The younger boys are watching as well and they will do the same. Stop the cycle now before it’s too late.
