  1. Shocking. I hope each athlete makes a quick and full recovery.

    Driver – I don’t want to hear any ‘lost control, collided with lampost BS’. looking at the photo of your vehicle it seems, in my untrained opinion, reckless driving at speed with no care and attention to other road users might be the beginning of how the police and athletes families view your behaviour.

    I hope there is a quick conviction that at a minimum removes license for a year, driver education & practical lessons a must, community service for a year on the highways of our country and complete payment for replacement cycles like-for-like. If a fine is appropriate so be it, but in conjunction with the aforementioned please.

    AG please please please do what it takes legally to ensure the measures I suggested are debated and given to Magistrates as sentencing options.
    Until these speedsters FEEL the results of their actions, beyond a fine, it’s clearly not changing some drivers road behavior.
    Thank you.

  2. The driving test needs re-evaluation now, bad driving practices are now rife and accidents seem to be happening on a daily basis.

    Anyone who has witnessed drivers pulling out too far from side roads, over-taking 3-4 vehicles, poor round-a-bout manoeuvres and inappropriate speeds in built up areas; will know that poor driving on the island has been aroind for decades.

    The solution?

    Maybe tougher penalties, stricter driving tests and possible custodian sentencing for causing deaths by reckless driving …

  3. These reckless drivers smdh…….when will you guys ever learn to slow down and driver with due care? Stop the damm speeding mon, oh gosh, y’all harden?
    Shit man!!!😎😎😎

  4. A general road safety, bike awareness, a be visible awareness campaign for drivers, cyclist’s and pedestrians is long overdue! All road users need some basic do’s and don’t reminders to stay safe
