    And then there is this story about the time in Cayman Brac where they only had two bicycles and the riders accidentally collided with each other…

    As a driver, I find it quite difficult at times when I am trying to watch traffic at an intersection and the next thing a scooter is passing on my right (or sometimes on my left) in an attempt to beat the light, while at the same time a cyclist is riding towards me on the wrong side of the road! It is not only drivers that need to obey the rules… cyclists and scooter riders can be doing a lot more to help their own cause!

    i don’t know if anyone has noticed but there’s been a lot of crashes on North Church street in these recent times, don’t you think it’s time for Government to make some new rules for this stretch of road? oh, but then again, we have to wait til many die/maimed before any action is taken for years. too bad.

    but still hoping Government will open their eyes and realise there is an increasing problem happening on this stretch of road that needs their attention and to make new rules like a very lowered speed limit. This road is too small for the amount of traffic up and down on it speeding.

    hopefully this doesn’t fall on deaf ears.

    I just want to let everyone know that it wasn’t me, and I’m okay. Thanks

      Maybe late for you but so many people these days are#1. Riding on the wrong side of the road now and want all the drivers to give it them right. Your days are numbered before you get measured up.
