    However most motor cycle rider ride recklessly arrogant and selfishly stupid. If they were given helmets free of cost, plus being paid to wear them, they will take the helmets and the money, throw the helmet away, or simple refuse to wear them, and continuing their ignorance for attention sake. In spite of this truth, they are our children. We are responcible to help protect them. Another truth is, that we adults are partly to blame for their blatant, reckless behaviors.

    Maybe it's time to lockdown the scooter kids again. Not really a good time to go to the hospital during this virus surge! The injuries might not kill you but the virus could.

    Mr.Skelton , Hon. Rhymed the Police. So much efforts have been placed in curbing the vexing problem of these motor scooters on our roads with nothing to shown for it. In some cases the scooter rider is not at fault however, because of the way these bikes are being used on our road one assumes that each time a collision between both vehicles occur the scooter is wrong. I would like to bring to the attention of you gentlemen that persons are involved in the illegal sale of cone test, road test or even the written exams and drivers licenses . The names of these persons are known. You will be surprised This is not an allegation this is a fact. Question your staff, question the so called driving schools. Mr. Skelton question your boys. If this continue the evidence will be given to the authority.

    Please try to apply your brakes a lil when its curving road/blind spot(i mean drive with brain inside your skull) . Let the Police officers do their formal or systematic investigation. Fabricated story/Gossips/ Fake story its not helping to this kind of incident. Just saying.
