        Yes. You can say some of it is the police fault. Moped and moped riders are on the increase you can see them in town in and out of traffic two people no helmet passing police and police stations. I saw a big truck full of garbage no covering garbage dropping off from the truck in front of police. Omg. Time to enforce the laws

          But the problem is when the Police start to enforce these and other laws you hear how they are harassing people, blocking up the traffic and how they are not from here and all that. As a people we have a responsibility to uphold the laws of this Territory and this include the way we conduct ouselves on our highways. Enforcement will only go thus far but educating ourselves on the laws and personal expectations is the key.

      The place is running like the WILD WEST since the former one stop the traffic police from going out when an accident happen The place is running as if there is no police in the country robberies is on the rise where is the cameras police should be patrolling the town where there is no cameras and drive around in there patrol cars the place is too small not to have the police them patrolling the town if police close their eyes they do not need to be on the force they get paid to protect the country it is time for a good over haul of that department to get this place secure.

    The driver in the pick up truck is from PR and was on the wrong side coming to town. Sometimes people forget what side of the road we drive on. Sorry about the accident and I hope everyone will be alright. The driver of the car I hope will be alright she has had some rough time lately hang in there everything is going to be alright soon.

      That is exactly what I thought was the cause. The car was really smashed up, head-on impact - it was an old model too so did not see any air bags deployed. The pick up driver was there talking with the Police and could see him constantly looking over at the Fire Officers assisting the injured.
