  1. Truth is killin’ me... says:

    74 years old! Should know better!! Every drunk rider/driver is capable of vehicular homicide. Yes I’m judging him by his actions.

    • puzzled says:

      He only killed a few pieces of coral wall.
      Stop telling the truth; it’s killing you.

      • Truth is killin’ me... says:

        Hell. There’s only a few pieces of coral bleeding at the roundabout on East Broadway too in 2 locations. That’s the problem. People enable too much on this island. If the person was on medications that affect driving ability he shouldn’t have been in a Taxi. Full stop! Wait till a person you love is killed by a drunk driver and your tune will change REAL QUICK!

      • Jus' Wonderin' says:

        still unacceptable for a taxi to be full hot and crash…what if he had passengers?! you sound like an idiot puzzled

  2. Judge not says:

    No issue with you judging as long as his impairment is due to alcohol and not medications. Sometimes things aren’t always as they appear.

    • Clint says:

      If the medications cause impairment he shouldn’t be driving while using them either.

    Not surprising at all .
    Many years ago the cleaning gal who had a gig at the end of my driveway would get her sweetie to pick her up at the end of her shift .
    He would have been in his 70′s at that point and on his way down in his taxi would pause outside my place and chug back a few miniatures and then toss the empties in the hedge.

    I believe this is a lot more common than people think. Bags of mints in the vehicle might be a giveaway .

    • puzzled says:

      That is totally different Toodle.
      In all my years Taxi drivers were and still are the biggest DUI’s going.
      As for the mints all they did was say ‘yah eye haid a foo’ ann um nut drahunk..

    • Jus' Wonderin' says:

      not just taxi drivers, bus drivers, ambulance drivers, work crews, politicians, the list goes on but hey we don’t have a problem here in bermuda…smfh

  4. Cranberry says:

    Taxi drivers should be made to retire at 65. Can’t tell you the number of times I’ve had to make an emergency plan cos I thought the cab driver was going to die of old age at the wheel…

  5. JUNK YARD DOG says:

    At the end of the year will we get a list of all the convicted drivers who were driving under the” influence of what ever”, or are they being protecte by ” DONT TELL “.

    Please do not repair the wall at the Crow Lane roundabout, leave it be for all to see.

    The day will come when the overseas Car & Bike rental agencies will not rent to Bermudians.

    If only walls could talk !

    We know that walls have Ears !

    If someone was hurt or killed those defending these action would be singing a different tune. Right is right and wrong is wrong. If he was drunk then he’s at fault. If it was medication, ALL meds come with instruction. So he’s still at fault. Thank God he had no passangers.
