      @ Tired. A lot of them are late for work, and instead of getting up early, they race through this place like maniacs! They always ride your tail as though it will make you drive faster. Not me, I go slower so their disgusting selves go around me. I give myself more than enough time to get to anywhere I have to go. This place is like the WILD WIL WEST!

      It seems one car veered into another car trying to pass and had no space to do so since it was a head-on collision. Either way, with this much damage, someone or both were driving very fast and unable to brake in time. I hope they both make it okay without many injuries.

      When will BVI drivers learn that you can’t overtake on a blind corner?

    They always speeding AND overtaking around that corner. People, stop engaging in selfish behavior by overtaking where there is a narrow road, a corner, or little to no pull-offs! Sometimes I wonder if some of these people have a death wish. Well, I don' stop subjecting me to these risks with those nonsensical practices!

    drivers on BVI roads. Nice photo of a head on collision by 2 vehicles. Hopefully it was just a 'test' collision with only dummies inside the vehicles.

    They need back all those retired traffic police. To be honest many did not like much of them, but with us going forward like this I will say bring them. Look at whats happening in this country. These frigging young folks just destroying it no respect for themselves or other road users. Such a shame. This whole thing was a setup from the very beginning. Look it had a drug squad unit, follow by a major crime unit, also a police aircraft and same as a police traffic unit. Today none of those areas exist. They all was removed. How could we we moved forward to regulate these when the system is rig. I want to see all these units return.

    I have had many a close calls or had to run my vehicle to the curb to avoid an accident or a head on collision, especially at night since i left the BVI/Tortola.. . There are many, many inexperiencedand careless drivers in the BVI.Law enforcement needs toesablish "a speeding task force."

    There was a time when the Police would have been out with their speed guns clocking speed along the road. These days like a lot of things are long gone

    So just pointing out something else to add but, besides the "Leap Year Theory" in the BVI almost every month it's atheist 2 Deadly occurances happening. I really hope I am wrong about this but We should limit some things OR more strict of enforcement.

    March just started with this 1, we don't need a 2nd or 3rd to understand value of life right now.

    All the crimes and accident most time are done by individuals who are younger than 30 and more so 18 to 25. Those age and this now generation is just lawless.

    Look what happen at the high school today 5 fights in about 1 to 2 hours. This place is getting crazy, mr governor i don't care if the mass dont like it put metal detectors and have these security train in combat skills.

    If not soon we will have a serious situation at that high school soon.

    So many people here driving with phones in hand, texting, video chatting whilst still driving at top speed.

    People hurrying to go nowhere. Happens everyday on every journey. Only a matter of time until there are more fatalities.

    I believe so too , and I have said it before , it's only a matter of time / it's like a trend now , the incident where those youths rode onto the high school grounds , if that was a wake up call ( aka ) red flag , then the inevitable might , sadly in the event of a school child getting killed , those who could of done something before to avoid it were either - incompetent -
    don't give a damn or still sleeping ???? ( hope not )
