  1. We have a lot of inpatient drivers in our society today that can’t wait and they are very inexperienced also it’s sad but if it’s true an example should be made so that drivers will think and be more cautious before they overtake

  2. Sorry to hear about the child….this morning in the vicinity of North Sound going in the direction to the round about the driver of A 5504 (blue honda) overtook a number of vehicles that was going over the speed bump and came around the corner right by the bridge on the uncoming vehicle part…i asked myself if he had hit the car what would be his excuse?

  3. Antigua needs a lot of prayers God is on his way back for his world people stay prayed up andstay in Gods word amen .
