    Ahh that red anti-skid stuff compliments of Derrick Burgess, it should be removed. I have seen many a vehicle slide even after slowing down and hugging the corner there. Glad no one was injured today.

      The nonskid grip if done properly and maintained from time to time is really good. If it is left to deteriorate then it becomes dangerous as drivers/riders will corner as they are used to with the high traction, but then when they roll over the extremely slippery when wet polished sections, the vehicle will spin out completely unexpectedly. In this case would sympathize with the driver.

    • I so agree. Everyday I ride as slow as possible going around that bend and still drift over. It’s beyond dangerous and frightening.

    I spun out on the same corner years ago while going the speed limit.

      The idea is to keep your vehicle under control, not to do the maximum speed limit everywhere.

    • Good Stuff says:

      Same lol.

    • Bob & Margaret says:

      A speed limit is exactly that, a limit to the speed you are allowed to drive along a roadway legally. It is the drivers responsibility to drive at a safe speed, not just within the limit.

      Spinning out is not safe and it therefore must mean that you were driving at an unsafe speed unless other factors out of your control came in (not the quality of the road surface which you should have been judging).

      In the UK many country lanes have ‘open’ limits which essentially means the limit is 60mph. However, many bends would be unsafe to negotiate even at less than half that limit – if you crash on one of those bends at 60mph you cannot use the fact that you were going the speed limit as a defense.

      I sympathize with you, but this is an important point for Bermuda’s motoring public to understand.

    sed the bill to Burgess,he had that red crap put there,he needs to pay to have it removed!

    • Time will Tell says:

      Having it installed is one thing, having it maintained is something completely different. It is designed to be resurfaced after a couple years which is something that just hasn’t happened.
