      “Car Mows Down Parked Bikes In Hamilton”

      Police think a gardener may be responsible.

      All joking aside…hope that noone was hurt.

    I love to see our highly experienced drivers on European ,UK or USA roads.

      What amazes me is that Bermudians go away, step off the plane & into a rental car & somehow they don’t kill themselves yet here at 20-30mph they do the dumbest of things on the road.

      How is that?

      • Ride says:

        Width of road, number of corners, number of junctions, number of driveways, changing angle of road surface, changing condition of road surface, and so on.

        Bermuda’s roads and traffic are very unforgiving when traveling at speed along them. It is so unlike driving along a high-/motor-way in other places. This is reason for the low speed limit. There is little room for error or inattention. I see so many near misses each week on these roads.

        People really need to slow down and pay attention.


      • Sigh says:

        who said a Bermudian was the driver?

    This is now totally out of control!!!!!! When will our police service start clamping down and deal with these idiots??? In the last 4 days we have had way to many serious accidents that the drivers were obviously not driving at the speed limit!!!
    We have 500 police officers in 21 sq miles, and I am on the road all day everyday and rarely see one, where the heck are you BPS???? I lived in a county in Florida for almost ten years that was over 500 sq miles and had a sheriffs dept that had just over 200 officers, and while I was driving not 5 mins would pass you would see one of them!!!, Bermuda really is another world!!!!!

      … I commute daily on our roads, during my commute I see multiple Police Officers and Police vehicles along the way. Some attending to matters, some on route, some doing spot and speed checks, some on foot and a fair portion of non-marked vehicles and non-uniform Officers. I must give credit where it is due, they are out there to the tune that some public complain when they are doing their job! Such as, why deez police gotta be out hur when um tryna get to verk! Relax kangoocar, they’re there – just take a happy glimpse around.

      I agree that here lately we’ve had quite a bit of collisions, we can’t speak to the details – but they’re there.

      Yabsolutely!!! Bermuda IS Another World, it’s a Beautiful place depending on your view – Enjoy It, You’ll Be Glad You Did!

      To perhaps answer to some degree your query; if there were 2 cops in the responding car, I’d bet it took them the better part of 5hrs to deal with this ‘accident’ in it’s entirety if they were even able to complete the enquiry during the remainder of their duty that day. Not actually at the scene but the paperwork, computer work, tracking down all owners etc etc.
      This is an extreme case of course with so many vehicles damaged, but accidents take a farcical amount of time for police to deal with and when it rains there are damage only and injury accidents all day, every day. That system needs to change for ‘minor’ accidents. We all pay insurance companies ton of money, to apportion blame and settle these issues is their sole function really. Police need not be involved in a lot of fender benders.
      Also, the BPS doesn’t have 500 cops, it has low 400′s last time I saw (still an unbelievably high number per capita, I concur) but if you think that all are at work at the same time and all are in uniform patrolling, you are a bit naive.

        I was a reserve police officer for 7 yrs starting in 1981, I am very much aware how the police service works, back in those days the officers actually did their jobs!! Now a days it just is not the same. The county I lived in in Florida had a population of about 350,000 people. As I said earlier the area was over 500 sq miles, and the sherifs dept had just over 200 officers. I do realize because of Bermudas high crime ratio that it does give challenges to our officers so I guess we now have to start looking at the generation we have created locally!!!

    Somebody has been watching Smokey & the Bandit. Um, you need a much bigger vehicle to roll over bikes & keep going.

  6. swing voter says:

    narrow roads, over priced cars in the hands of unskilled drivers = 40 collisions per day

    • Triangle Drifter says:

      Don’t know what the price of cars has to do with it. If anything one would think that extra care would be taken with expensive cars. Not here apparently.

      You are right about the unskilled drivers however. Can you imagine what the carnage would be like if we had snow????
