  1. About damm time attorney General…much can be done to curb reckless driving in Antigua 🇦🇬

    • In response,
      In the absence of the presence of law enforcement on the road reckless will be the orderoftheday. I Pont all fingers at law enforcement, they believe that once in a blue moon which I’ve never seen is police at its best. One in a century you see them with speed guns trying to capture a few individuals, but what happens the day after these mad people are given the green light to terrorize law abiding road users.
      I often make the comment, Antigua is the only country I’ve been to where I see people overtake police, cut off police in traffic without consequence.
      In conclusion here is what I think is going to happen
      They going to introduce some exorbitant traffic penalty, with a threat of jail time, cancelation and suspension of drivers license, but the question will still remain where is the police, with the absence of the presence of the police patrolling our streets, lawlessness will continue to be the order of the day. Thank you.

  2. So little information forthcoming. Just usual BS with no specific plans for a. Better signage so that residents, tourist and law enforcement all understand where speed zones start and end. What maximums are. 2. A comprehensive points system which leads to loss of license to operate vehicles. 3. Speed cameras and display warnings that record license numbers leads to imposing fines for each offence: speeding, running lights, seat belt usage, lack of signals, etc. Transport Board and Law enforcement gave failed in leadership as have the insurance companies and out political leaders.
