What is wrong with drivers today in this country? Every morning you wake a lamp pole is down, wires down and power out. Why? Because someone decided to turn roads across the Bahamas into the Indy 500.
Almost every weekend some ends their own life or the life of another in a traffic accident. A few weeks ago we heard how a mother died. She was involved in a traffic accident in the West Bay Street area. With trauma to the head as a result of the accident, she was brain dead. Her final days was spent in the intensive care unit of at PMH. She died last week and left behind a 6 week old baby.
Sunday we saw a minister in the government speeding beyond 80 miles an hour on a 35mph section of town. He was driving himself. Please people, DRIVE TO ARRIVE ALIVE.
This vehicle shown was overturned on Sir Milo Butler Highway early Sunday morning. The impact was so serious the back window blowout several feet away. The driver was sitting up on the side of the road, injured of course.
And late Sunday night our Road traffic ‘deep-throat’ informed us that another serious accident was at the intersection of St. Barnabas Anglican Church (Blue Hill and Poinciana Drive). Someone decided to run the red light at top speed and another innocent soul got hurt. Slow down people, SLOW DOWN! DRIVE TO ARRIVE ALIVE.
