    I am going to use some strong words here.

    This is not about the law it is about preservation of life.

    Speed is not the only problem here.

    Not one day goes past that we don’t read about road colisions ,our statistics have long since proportionately exceeded those of other countries.

    I am saddened with the loss of life an personal injuries that result from these need less collisions.

    I wonerder if those restrictive motorcycle helmed are the cause of many bike collisions.

    Fact : There are many unsafe reverse camber roads and corners remaining in Bermuda.

    There is much that can be done and has been done by local business institutions, however the carnage continues.

    Placing blame does not solve the problem .

    The police use restraint as the they know can not fine every body. More on that later.

    Bernews and the RG do their best to bring these pointless collision to the attention of the public and and the legislature .

    A dictatorial strong arm approach to the problem is not the answer either, that has failed in the past.

    Placing more laws on the books will not work because what we have has failed, dont waste our money on cameras and miles of yellow lines to deal with a people problem.

    May I recomend that all of us take a new comprehensive look at the problem with guide lines.

    ********************** Town hall every body **************************

    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ 35 K is a catch 22 law. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    My thoughts are, it is unsafe to have a Bus full of school children or a Tractor Trailer traveling at 50 k around Barnes corner ,for example and so on, that is not just the only problem out there the list of public disobedience is long.

    Bermuda needs to take a good look at speed, as there needs to have some flexibility through out the entire island. Realizing in business that time is money.

    Ever vehicle has its safe driving speed .
    Every corner has its saved driving speed.
    Every person has their safe driving speed.
    Every hill has its safe driving speed.

    The last thing we need to continue here is our island wide Grand Prix race track .

    Graduated speed zones:
    better guide lines
    better warning signs:
    Better road marking:

    Above all personal restraint .
