    It’s about time Bermuda creates a bridge stemming over the harbor, to help get traffic in and out of town. Just do it for heavens sake. Traffic is bonkers on this island, out of control congestion. Takes forever to go home. No room for emergency vehicles to get by in or out of city is ridiculous. And Im sick of almost getting hit by a car every day of my life trying to commute to or from work on bike with all these crazy car drivers who drift lanes and dont indicate. Also, end the loophole allowing people to own many cars just due to being rich and owning multiple assessment numbers.

      Or stop letting senior citizens drive/ride and own cars/bikes that would cut down on more than 50% traffic
