    This is alarming, Lord help, back to back Sundays, both from up north Gros islet. One at 4, one at 5pm. I pray peace over these families affected. I pray that the God of all comfort, comfort these families in such difficult time. RIP Lance,

    Are motorcyclists taken lessons to use the roads safely and adhere to road and traffic conditions. Recklessness on the road is risky and results in death.
    Please Saint Lucia advertise road safety in the media.

    I find the motorbike riders have a total disrespect for the road. The ride from Rodney Bay in to Castries can sometimes be horrendous. They are in and out of traffic and seem to come out of nowhere. The roads need police supervision and I have yet to see any evidence of that.
