    Bermudian drivers. Half of them are absolute idiots.

  5. PANGAEA says:

    Tail gating behind the exhaust of any vehicle is not healthy.

    It is safer and wiser to stay well back.

    Over taking always comes with a big price.

    In a hurry going nowhere? The recklessness and couldn’t-care-less attitudes of some riders and drivers on Bermuda’s roads is a joke!

  7. Realist says:

    The police should take this a step further and start showing licence plates. You may find drivers/riders driving/riding more cautiously on the roads if their identities were exposed. Seems lately car drivers are driving more recklessly on top of the bike riders consistently riding recklessly.
