These accidents are Reckless ànd Dangerous Driving by non experience Drivers .The police should give this Driver who Caused this accident several Traffic Charges
What is going on in our country? Once you hear of a serious or fatal accident rest assured hours later there is a shooting, which may cause serious injury or result in a homicide. This is stretching the emergency services beyond its capabilities. We St Lucians need to act more responsible to curb this scourge and carnage taking place in our country.
So the road has all the necessary markings and signs but yet still. Btw should we also put speed bumps there. That is the only thing Min of Transport, and the Police know as solutions. There been a few accidents on that stretch recently. The Traffic Unit is right there. Not even there they can do a lil Policing. SMH.
Accident, Shooting, Accident,Stabbing, Accident, Drive by shooting, Accident , Robbery. Rinse and repeat. That is all that going on in Lucia. I’m embarrassed for my country.
St. Lucia has become the accident country on the planet. Pure wreck less driving, the authorities need to implement speed control on some vehicles from over 650cc. It will prevent deadly accidents like such, which will continue until they decided to do so. And implement stiffer laws to impound vehicles if you break the law.
