    Court collects $30,000 in an hour for 3rd lane “due care” tickets, radar popping up everywhere, increased police presence on the roads and promises and campaigns but yet there has never been a crackdown on drunks leaving licensed establishments and driving under the influence. We wouldn’t want to violate drinkers rights they say. Police twitter reports the 41 year old victim in the above story had his foot amputated this morning but since Bermudians love to drink, no one cares.

    It is reported that most road deaths stem from use of drugs or alcohol causing bad road decisions.I hope these same road users don’t wake up in hospital one day to the knowledge that the person they ran over was a close family member.

      Please break down the stats, itemize how many were from which drugs and exactly how many were alcohol (another dangerous drug), saying 75% of fatalities were due to alcohol and drugs is purposely vague and misleading, unfortunately no one seems to care.
