    Not knowing the full details of the accident. Motorcycle riders seem to don’t care about their life and limbs. I don’t know why they ride like they do. I do however believe that the written test at TCD does not test the mental state of the person taking the test because there are some incredibly brain dead stupid people using our roads…I remember certain tests that ask you question pertaining to common sense. Who is the Premier of Bda? etc etc..

    Guy on the bike came speeding around the corner as the car was already across the road turning into the gate.

      ya’ll need to start using your indicators. @nonsense i hope you were present during the accident opinions dont count. As u can see the rider was half way through the road as the driver in the car tried to turn. young drivers, it should be mandatory for them to have driving lessons. STOP SPEEDING DRIVERS & RIDERS!!!

    @ reality check, the car was already across the street and in the gate. Had the rider not been speeding, there would not have been an accident nor would he have inflicted injuries to himself.
