    This particular spot is quite unusual and need prayers. Anyone ever noticed vehicle's always run into the same area?
    The staff working in that building has mental issues and some not even aware.

    some drivers from the bigger cities comes into little BVI and drive likes a bat outta hell

    Tortola is just 24 square miles and truly no need for speed but some men trying to get home to see what’s happening in the house

    At the end of the day our country has be because very unlawful; gun man all over the place; guns all over the place; immigration gone wild; and most of such cases are done in broad daylight

    Progress is a good thing but the leaders must be watchful be it the police, politicians, immigration and labour

    run chat dat!!!

    Lol listen do not put back in that traffic light. Each time u all put that up some idiot knock it down. Let them take them time going around that corner wondering what color light is causing them to be cautious. When the light there they speed and try beat it forgetting that corner funny badddddd with speed.

    shouldnt be there anyway - karma. I saw a tourist stop right in front it when red...there's no sign indicating the light should be ignored until you get around the corner...typical of us in BVI - we have speed bumps with no warning signs, traffic lights with no explanation, two lane "highways" with not dividing paint, hairpin corners with no warning, faded pedestrian crossings...those of us who live here get used to it. But how can a visitor or tourist be safe on our roads?

    That person who knock down the street light should be charged for reckless driving and should be made to pay for the damage out of his own pocket.

    And if he does not fix it back, take his driver license from him until he fixes it. This will teach them not to seep and drive recklessly.

Reeducation, is the person that makes the driving experience safe ….while there is an point that can be made to say modern vehicles are more pack with safety features data show consistently that road accidents are on the increase and was no different in new or old point is to say “old cars” is arrogance at play ….Reeducation…..not even one get the same blessings “
