      And some of them need to stay in their lane. Most people seem very selfish how they drive because they will be spending or turning corners and they will come over in your lane....they don't give a $h¡t if they run you off the road. I was expecting a crash up Beef island last evening with the car "show" they had up by the airport SMH

    Those folks who drive those “Right Hand Drive “ Vehicles drive very, very reckless.
    They in and out of lanes and they overtake around corners and when another car is coming from the opposite direction.
    When I see this happens, all I can say is thank God they didn’t crash and cause an innocent person to lose their lives.
    Senseless and Deadly Accidents are a norm where they came from and they’re bringing it to the BVI.
    Most time they don’t have a license and the vehicle is not licensed nor insured.

      @ Reckless Drivers... You are a MORON! Most accidents here are left-hand driven cars. Bad drivers come in all shapes and forms no matter where they come from. Tailgating, speeding, lawlessness, no regard for other drivers or pedestrians, no insurance, no license, no registration, etc.

      and the church said amen
      one can asked the serious request where are the traffic police one glimpse traffic police after a collision on the public roads and that is so shameful in such a small territory. School children saying the police now sits in a room watching cct systems

      lots of the incidents going on here could be regulated if the police comes out of hiding

      there is far more police these days yet far more crimes 24 square miles filled multiple unsolved offenses

      That is all reckless hearsay. Nothing to do with right hand drive, and your last comments are libellous!

      So persons who drive Left-hand vehicles do not overtake around corners, do not break any traffic laws and all are licensed and fully insured. Just stop with your reckless comment.

      Reckless driving is reckless driving, regardless of what side the steering wheel is on. In theory, a right hand drive vehicle makes more sense to be used if you drive on the left side of the road (like how left hand drives are used in the USA who drive on the right side of the road).
      Right hand drive vehicles are also cheaper so I can see why they have become popular. I just think people need to familiarize themselves properly with their vehicles (especially if you've driven left hand drive for most of your life) so they don't drive in the middle of the road. Oh and slow down! We have no "highways" in the BVI. Hope everyone involved is okay though. Prays up.

    The speed limit on the dual carriageway in RT is 20mph. The living policeman won't do anything so it could be time for a few dozen sleeping policemen on this road's surface!

    Either increase the Police traffic unit with people or defund the Police. There is no visual presence of officers during rush hours. Loud noise through traffic daily. Vehicles running the traffic light at the Red Cross junction. Earn respect or give up the job. Road rage on the increase. Stop the violence.

    Right Hand Drive vehicles do not cause accidents. We are supposed to be driving rid vehicles since we drive on the left. Reckless drivers cause accidents!!

    The donkeys that is trying to pass you when you are in your lane they don’t signal to let you know they are about to pass. Some people here should not be driving and I often wonder if they bought their licenses or did they had someone take the road test for them.

    Actually, cars with a right-side steering wheel are the ones we should be using. With right-side steering, you can see around most turns quicker than left-wheel cars, making it better for them to avoid a lot of oncoming traffic. We are backward when it comes to what side of the road we are driving on. Most countries with right-side steering drive on the left side of the road, we do the opposite. Ergo, more accidents added to the usual speeding etc.

      the direction we drive in is for right hand drive cars.. which is much safer. for instance.. your passenger does not exit the vehicle in traffic.. plus if over taking you have a much clearer view. the onyt reason we driving lefthand drive is thats all we had from the states and puerto rico back in the day even now... but is british roads.
