    Another reason we do NOT need these big trucks on our road!

    • lolwut says:

      Oh come on don’t be so reactive lol. One accident and you are crying.

    • with blinders on. says:

      This is the first reported of to big trucks in low long Susan? If that’s the case let’s get rid of small car and walls here. Those thing are causing all sorts of damage on this island.

    • Bermy says:

      So how else do you reckon we should move construction materials and waste, equipment, food and beverage deliveries and water?

      • Islander says:

        what about the damage that these tankers are causing to our roads do you remember when those dumpsters were goign thru st georges taking rubble and stuf from holiday inns after it was demolished houses were seen to have cracks, roads were getting messed up who needs that and after much complaining I didn’t see any of those dumpsters on the road for a long time and of course, we know who allowed them to come in whistle if you can

    • Build a Better Bermuda says:

      Sorry, but that is a bit of a ridiculous overreaction, both of those trucks are of a common size and dimension that have been in use on the island for many years. In fact both would be smaller than a container hauler. By your train of thought, we should get rid of anything with wheels off the roads, as cars and bikes are the cause of more accidents and traffic issues that trucks.

    • Purple Koolaid says:

      Susan, and how do you propose that we get freight of the docks, by using the trains that we don’t have?

  2. Sue says:

    Hope evryone involved is ok

  3. Andy Neilson says:

    Looks like both were travelling in the same direction. Bravo…..

    • Triangle Drifter says:

      Uh, no…more like W&E truck hitting the low boy tractor head parked without its trailer.

    • postal says:

      the trailer was parked

  4. lick my chicken says:

    another day in paradise. morning.

  5. Just one look at the photo’s speaks for itself,W&E(Government Vehicle) and a Container hauler(Private Vehicle). Government worker mad at private sector, because no money in Government but private sector still making money. So why not beat up on the private sector so they can feel the crunch also.

    • Andrew Little says:

      …Oh, I get it, ‘feel the crunch’…

    • Keepin' it Real!...4Real! says:

      so…who would you say is gonna be footing this bill..??

  6. Scoalsy says:

    To much speeding :(
    I do between 45 and 50 K (speeding) and trucks, bikes, cars and even Buses pass me as if i were stopped, I’m not surprised there there isn’t more deaths from bikers the way they ride and pass people, the law need to be more sticker with punishment, not just fines but take their license also, and if they get caught riding while they are off the road LOCK them up it would be for their own good as well as others.

    • Christopher says:

      Scoalsy, Just yesterday I had to deal with a Bermuda police car, coming head on at me, halfway in my lane, because they couldn’t be bothered with yielding(as the law says to do when an obstruction is in your lane). Instead, he opted to overtake the cyclist illegally, and endanger me. I have observed many other situations where the police either violate traffic laws themselves or ignore violations happening right in front of their face. Until the Police service decides to uphold and enforce the traffic laws, your best bet is to be very attentive and drive defensively.

  7. W900Bx3 says:

    Why would you deliver equipment on North Shore at 8am? Traffic is bad enough as it is. That looks like a trailer and that means the deck of the trailer is somewhere blocking the road to unload equipment.

  8. Family Man says:

    Lots of work for auto-body shops in Bermuda. That sure looks like one business that wont have any layoffs soon.

  9. Ombudsman says:

    Looks like works n engineering won

  10. Joonya says:

    I have noticed lately that bikes, cars, busses, heavy trucks are all flying around!
    SLOW DOWN PEOPLE! Especially large vehicles. You cant continue to bully your way into my lane. You’re gonna kill someone.
    And the multiple road works aren’t helping. Come on Govt get Palmetto Road fixed already!
    And please people use your damn indicators.
    Thank You

    • TonyC says:

      This is a major gripe of mine. It isn’t Government who fix Palmetto Road, it’s the civil service. They are the ones screwing things up.

      Similarly, it ain’t the Government who aren’t policing, it’s the police.

      The rest is right though.

      Today I had a Truck, one of the smaller tankers, come hurtling up behind me, and then tailgated me all the way from Scaur Hill to The Reefs. Scary. I was following a car which was veering onto the verge on the left and then into the lane on the right. I had bikes overtaking on blind corners, I had one jerk who flew by me on the inside, and I had a suicidal fool who overtook the pink taxi on Trimingham Hill just as I was coming in the other direction. We have bikes riding along sidewalks because it’s rider is too damn lazy to follow the road.

      So where are the police while all this is happening? Issuing freaking tickets to people who don’t put their foot down at a stop sign.

      • Islander says:

        police are giong to all the accidents that the riders you have described caused

      • Keepin' it Real!...4Real! says:

        so you get the feeling, that the world is passing you by..?? if everyone is tailgating you or passing you on the inside, outside, sidewalk or what ever… you should step back and take a better look at the picture…your driving technique is the problem…

  11. Christopher says:

    We have an average of 1 road accident for every 35 people on island as of 2012. That is way too much! I’m sure it is still around that too. We need actual enforcement of traffic laws from the Bermuda Police Service(as well as them setting examples when they are driving). That would be a good start.

  12. Rhonnie aka BlueFamiliar says:

    No clue how that happened, but would be interested to hear.

    In my experience the people who drive the big trucks are the best drivers on the island. They kind of have to be.

    • Keepin' it Real!...4Real! says:

      A BIG thank you from Real Truckers! Y’all need to Recognize!…lol

  13. Ameoba says:

    Lets put Susan on a smaller plane when she travels and on her return rent her a pedal bike to take her luggage home

  14. Keepin' it Real!...4Real! says:

    nothing but a case of due care and attention…this was NOT supposed to happen.

  15. MAKE MY DAY says:

    I GIVE UP…. Are half the Island’s vehicle operators driving DWI or DUI most of the time?? The mind “boggles” at the amount of UNNECESSARY accidents – when you have a “speed limit” of only 20-25 MPH!!

    Someone please explain to me why…. Day after day – after day – there are all these accidents!!

    As Dr. Frasier Crane (Frasier) used to say… I AM LISTENING!!
