  1. In the piaye crash, minor injuries????? and one of the drivers remained critical and is now dead? RIP Chef! Condolences to your wife and kids.

  2. I think it is getting ridiculous now with the number of road accidents which have been occurring lately. People have no regard for road safety whether it be to protect their own and other persons’ vehicles or God forbid protect HUMAN LIFE. Everybody is always in a rush on the road and take ridiculous chances. Sometimes I wonder who taught these people to drive and if they did the defensive driving course, because for the life of me I just don’t understand the drivers of today.

  3. Dear authorities. Kindly erect speed bumps along the bexon highway. Please. Statistically the most motor vehicular accident deaths have occurred along this road. Thank you.

    • Honestly it doesn’t make sense I’ve seen vehicles literally fly over dem it really doesn’t slow dem dwn

  4. The rot on this island runs deep. Every time one steps out of their house it’s like entering a war zone. Reckless driving, shootings and just general disrespect has set this country on a wicked path. I despair for the future of this island.

      • Point proven and I know you don’t like hearing this because the truth (negativity) is scary but until we admit there is an issue there isn’t a chance of fixing it.
