    I can’t imagine what your father is goin through, I’ve known you since you were a child and saw you grow into a man and to say goodbye now is heartbreaking but god knows best.

    My deepest condolences to your mother and father🕊

    • Even if APUA was to remove utility poles, would that stop motorists from losing control, crashing into something else, and possible loosing their lives?

      After continuing from your suggestion of removing poles, what else would we need to remove?

      My best suggestion, is that, motorists, whether speeding or not, whether their vehicles are safe or not, whether they are sleeping whiles driving or not, whether there is a pot hole or not, whether there is a hard to see slow moving iceberg or not, just take your time on these tempting roads and tempting vehicels.

      If per chance you feel sleepy while driving, pull aside, inform someone in your contacts that you are taking a quick nap in your vehicle and see if they can call you back in about 5 minutes.

      Condolences to his family.

  2. Speeding thrills but speeding also smh sad situation…
    RIP youngster 🙏🙏🙏🙏

  3. Good. At least he didn’t kill or injure anyone else. He learned the hard way and now he won’t be a danger to anyone else on the roads. He learned his lesson well.
