  1. This is the second time in a year that a minibus drives off the road in Sarot.Can it be that the road is to narrow? or is speed the problem? lets see what the passengers have to say.

  2. Seems alot of people keep having accidents at sarrot for some reason also there is a complaint about a pole which drivers usually crash into

  3. Well you know most of our country villages were just houses sprung up in any fashion with out much order,planning department never came out to see what was going on.So people have the boundaries of their land that ends on the road edge.This leaves no room for a walkway for pedestrians,and it leaves no room to widen some of these roads that were designed in the days of mule carts,and not for these times.Sarot has a main road that runs straight down the, town,the road was built on a ridge,so you have steep slopes on either side with no walls or protective barriers,and the road is narrow,and if you happen to encounter a walking pedestrian,plus a vehicle coming in your direction you have to stop,or fly the pedestrian of the ridge.A wall would be a solution plus some kind of walk way.Are these dreams ?

    • Yeah man but don’t wake up if it’s back to St Lucia’s harsh reality you’re coming back to. Perhaps it’s better that way.
