    Past the airport today around 5:30, there were about 10 motorbikes ready to drag race. I thought to myself, they will be on VINO tonight as they crash and burn. These drivers really are putting their lives in danger with all of this speed racer mentality.

      you seem upset they can race incident free, meanwhile, the regular driver can't even avoid crashing into a pole...

    Anyone that hits an electrical pole whether you fell asleep, was drunk or speeding, need to be off the road for a bit. Consider the fact that the vehicle could have exploded, caused electrocution or knocked out electricity...yea, stay off the road please.

    hey , the undertakes got to live too , a lot of accidents can be avoided if some drivers just use simple common sense / some can't drive ,some just showing off, some don't service their vehicles and then there are those who belive they own the road and the rest is history ( hopefully not innocent persons are in the wrong place at the wrong time ????
