    This is about the third accident in the past seven days where the person has been admitted to the ICU. I don,t know what can be done to encourage folk to exercise the greatest care possible. There may be a few steps to consider before getting on the road 1. mechanical condition 2. ability to operate the motor vehicle and be aware of traffic and weather conditions 3. Defensive driving paying particular attention to every intersection. 4. Try to leave for your intended destination at least 20 minutes before the amount of time you usually require to get there, so you are not developing a tendency to speed or create circumstances that may be dangerous to other road users. 5. keep an eye out for the the other driver. Even the most experienced drivers have accidents, lets encourage each other. I hope those injured are getting all the care needed, and the families receiving lots of support.

    What’s up with all these collisions, far too many, people slow down and don’t drink and ride

    Bermuda appears to not take drink driving serious (if it was drink driving) The court system here is a joke.

    The Magistartes need to be controlled a lot more. Penalty for drunk driving is $1,000 up to $1,800 and 12 months to 18 months off the road.

    Canada makes drink driving a criminal offense. The Government no matter who it is appears to be out of touch. Watching how the courts deal with violence type offenses is alarming.

    This small country can easily be controlled but the court system is a joke and needs putting in check.

      Is it your assumption that this accident comes as a result of operating a vehicle while under the influence of substances–in this case alcohol? Do you have access to privileged information on which you base your comments? Pretty shallow of you, if not. For all we know, the gentleman could have had a medical emergency. Perhaps there was another vehicle or force involved. How about a thought for the gentleman’s better health? #IJS
