  1. Bexon always have some intoxicated persons forming the carnival on the highway they just running in front of vehicles

  2. The Bexon Highway is a death-trap and high-risk accident zone –yet the clueless authorities perenially fail to do anything to address this tragic matter! For one thing, how can you have a major highway passing through a densely-populated residential zone with no side-walks for pedestrains??? Just unbelievable!!!

  3. Interesting that the Police always calls on the motorists to abide by the rules that govern the road. Smh. Here the driver is already being blamed. But what about the intoxicated pedestrians walking on the road in the DARK roads we have. I hope King eh come and blame Speed. The roads need better lighting and sidewalks.

  4. TRUTH BE TOLD. Remember how they put up barricades, speed bumps at Rodney Bay when a drunk tourist strayed into the road and got killed by a vehicle? That was one tourist. Now compare that to the number of St. Lucian CITIZENS that have died along this highway already. The authorities don’t give a rats ass about any taxpayer in this country.

  5. TRUTH BE TOLD you are so correct. It is a huge shame for those in authority to perpetuate such a blind policy. The minister for infrastructure one would swear never travels so he is not impressed with road networks in Europe. For heaven’s sake if you do not have the mental capacity to develop ideas of your own……..copy and paste what you see elsewhere and you will be counted as one with “honour”

  6. Drunk tourist sadly gets hit infront of Rodney Bay Marina- railings, speed bump, zebra crossing installed in no time. Millionth local pedestrian get hit along Bexon highway, authorities and their King are on a trip to Mars- nowhere to be found on earth!!

  7. It is about time that special attention be placed on the Bexon Highway( Bexon proper, L’Abbayee and Ravine Poisson). Are the authorities waiting for more people to die for them to do something? In Bexon we do not have side walks leaving us vulnerable to careless drivers who show no concern for pedestrians especially mothers with children patiently waiting to get across the road.

  8. It is about time that urgent attention be placed on the Bexon Highway( Bexon proper, L’Abbayee and Ravine Poisson). Are the authorities waiting for more people to die (their relatives) for them to do something??? In Bexon we do not have side walks leaving us vulnerable to careless drivers who show no concern for pedestrians especially mothers with children patiently waiting to get across the road. Minister For the Roads do something!!!
