  1. 1. Once a driver (mike, car, truck, etc) declines assistance from responders – something is afoot. The responders should duly notify the police asap, so the police can do their investigations on the unco-operative driver. Ten to one he/she is hiding his driving status (licence, insurance, theft, etc.).

    2. Our bikers on the road need to be more careful, and should attend mandatory safe riding skills workshops – for their safety and well being. while riding on the road. Bikers need to understand that they are riding a “lethal weapon” – which has the potential to KILL! I have seen bikers take unnecessary and dangerous moves on the road, and it is appalling and frightening.

  2. Road accidents on St.Lucia roads is a menace. One who got hit about a month ago
    while crossing the road in Castries was hit by a young driver who had strong alcohol
    on his breath have not been charged. the police who investigated blamed the victim
    saying, he should watch where he’s going.(are you kidding me, on a Sunday morning
    near the Market?) it is said that the young speedster has strong connections, guess of all
    places? yes, that’s where; and that’s sweet St.Lucia – and ‘Mary’ has reason to complain.

  3. He declined to be taken to the hospital,but be sure that they got all his documents drivers license and insurance.They are investigating the incident.

    • It baffles me that insurance companies are silent about all these bike life accidents. Is it that those bikers don’t have insurance. I would think that claims from bikers are very high and that companies would be losing due the frequency of wrecks.
