      The police needs to be at every corner, at every pedestrian crossing at every speed bump at every bar at every shop at every beach on every ferry. The police can prevent every accident! Best we have a police state by your standards.

      This is a normal traffic junction, drivers must exit with caution. Every time we see an accident, it relates to many drivers, driving without due care and attention. More random stops are needed for drivers to present their licence and insurance. Every time a good driver takes to the road, there are risks from those non qualified to be driving and riding. Let’s face it, how many times a day do we see idiots on the road?

    She was taken to the hospital more than 1 hour after the accident. Yes, more than 1 hour laying in the ground and moaning because of the pain from possible serious injuries. Hospital pretty much across the street and she had to stay there on the ground unattended by any medical staff. Will there be any investigation of this mismanagement? Will there be any consequences? SupaCop had to actually go himself to the hospital to get things moving when critical time was passing and no ambulance in sight.

    Someone almost got hit crossing the road lastnight right in that area. It’s not properly lighted and they were not utilizing a crosswalk.

    Stuff like that bothers me! People quick to take pictures/video instead of rendering assistance.

      This bothers me too. Many times you see the picture/videos and no one offering any assistance. Some will be on the blogs posting about police and medical service arriving late but those same bloggers did not call for help. They send these images all around but when ask why they did not call for help, they simply reply my phone has know credit. It amazes me how it can work to create confusion but not to give help.

    Don't know the circumstances of this accident. As a motorist, I find that pedestrians do not use the crosswalks and cross streets anywhere, expecting moving vehicles to stop right on the spot to allow them to cross. There should be courtesy on the road towards pedestrians ON CROSSWALKS. A safety campaign is needed to teach from young age how to cross a road. Many times there are parents crossing with small children roads outside the crosswalks located a few steps away. It is not safe. Safety on the roads should be taught in school and pertains to motorists and pedestrians. There are rules for both. Please follow them. It avoids accidents :)

    The drivers and pedestrians have to respect each other on the roads/streets.

    Ban all vehicles they are running down our people and they have more brakes than scooters. I applaud the scooter riders who stop to let pedestrians cross!!!
