    Not sure what hapened but on a couple different occasions, there have been cones around road work but there aren’t any signs beforehand so you basicly have to swerve at the last minute.

      Years ago lights where placed around the area on the road. Now you wonder why the person in front of you is driving to a stop and then going on the other side of the road until yes its upon you 4 cones around square. There may have been a little red sign to read in the dark

      If you’re going the speed limit, there is ample time to adjust accordingly.

        Not in the dark. I saw it – it looked pretty unsafe to me.

    • Micro says:

    • Scoalsy says:

      While driving down South shore road yesterday i was thinking that something like that would happen.
      What happened to the barricades and warning lights they used to put around
      the new manholes

    Looks like some of the local police need “refresher courses” in SAFE driving as well!! Nearly EVERY day – there is yet another accident to report!! And the Island only has 63,000 residents… Like a small town in the USA!!
