Crackdown On Errant Motorcyclists Urged After Fatal Collision

There have been calls for a police crackdown on motorcyclists who break the law, after a fatal accident Sunday at Ravine Chabot.

Brad Fatal, 35, lost his life when the motorcycle he was riding collided with a Coaster.

The pillion rider sustained multiple injuries and is currently hospitalised.

Both were not wearing helmets at the time of the accident.

“I would agree that we have an issue,” says Terroll Compton, the President of the Saint Lucia Moto X Club.

He told St Lucia Times that of late, this country has recorded more incidents on the road involving motorcyclists.

“Yes, there needs to be some type of intervention – it needs to be seriously looked at to curb what’s happening,” Compton declared.

The President of the Saint Lucia Moto X Club observed that accidents cost the society as well as affected families.

“For some reason a lot of motorcyclists feel they should not wear helmets because it makes them feel free, but the issue of not wearing a helmet is one aspect of it for safety reasons, but there is also the issue of how you conduct yourself,” Compton explained.

“Even if you have a helmet and you are behaving in a crazy manner, you are showing no regard for life – yours or the person behind you or the motorists who might find themselves in an accident where they can no longer provide for their family because it’s a taxi driver; the driver of a minibus,” he stated.

Compton said in some instances a driver may have to ‘ditch’ a vehicle to avoid a collision with a motorcycle, while the rider may simply continue on his way.

He acknowledged that a motorcycle may make life easy in terms of getting to and from a destination in heavy traffic.

But Compton noted that how a motorcyclist rides to that destination is important.

He said motorcyclists need to consider other road users.

According to the Police Traffic Department, five persons have died so far as a result of road accidents in Saint Lucia.

  1. If the police can charge 70 year old citizens for driving around the William peter boulevard without wearing a seat belt, then why the hell do they allow these a****** motorcyclists to ride around the country without helmets.

  2. Crack down on every motorcycles police and all its a disgrace to see how these guys behaving on the road.when the police want to do nonsense he put his sirine on and off he goes going no where.to do nothing.

    I Proclaim on the rooftop that the “King is coming”! I announce to the ends of the earth, that the “King is coming”. And that the days of Noah are here. “I am coming for those who have laid their burdens down” …. In the name of Jesus.
    The Father says: I have voices in the earth, and I will not allow them to be silent. Those who stand before me while the battle rages to silence them will have legs of steel and their voices will ring all the clearer. I have purified, clarified and aligned their hearts and to honor me is the only reason they speak now. They have no reason to speak for themselves, but they will speak for me with authority and power. They have received their calling during great warfare and humility is your mantle. They will carry more glory and power than any other generation. Hoards come against them and angels protect them, but it is their message that causes the warfare. The greater the resistance against them the stronger their mantle. And this is how I must raise them, I am raising my generals and training them where they stand. I am correcting, equipping and raising the sound of their voice in my hearts. I am strengthening their spine and giving strength to their legs.
    They are being propelled forward with great momentum to fulfill my will. I am building them into who I desire them to be. More than doing what they are called to do, they will be what they are called to be. My presence will be evident in them as they continue to honor me and that will set them apart from those around them in every circumstance and every encounter. They will shine a great light and make a great impact for that is my purpose in them. They will possess great military bearing though none have a military back ground for I myself have seen to their very specific training. I am raising my hidden ones and they are my powerful and indescribably beautiful and undefeatable secret weapon. Tell them, great reward is coming for their obedience. I have brought you to me in a way that no one else would come and showed you the things in my heart. Secret desires that have been hidden in plain sight will be hidden no more, so the world may see my thoughts.
    Now is the time that all must hear, and all must be made to see. Very deep in the dung of the earth is where I have hidden you until such a time as this. But now is the time that you must be raised, and a great light will shine through you. That through you the world will know that I exist. In but a moment I will remove all that have restrained and held you back. I will heal all that has burdened you and you will shine as my light shines through you. This is what the universe was created for, to place you here and bring you to me. In the last days there will be a mighty battle and many lives will be destroyed, but many also will be delivered. This to say to look beyond what you see in the earth, to see the final judgement that is beyond this life. To leave the life you have in the earth is not to be outside of my presence or to lose your place in the kingdom.
    * These are the words of – Yahushua.
    Do you know him, he knows you? Repent; be baptized and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, those of you who have not done so, for when the books are closed, no one will be able to enter in. God is sending warnings after warnings. We are in the End Times and he does not want ANY ONE to Perish. Time is running out, get saved now while you have time. He is the only way to salvation. Amend your ways and you will be allowed to remain in the land. Let those who have ears to hear and those who have eyes to see. Repent now! Remain strong, bold, courageous and steadfast in your faith.
