    Pedestrians seem to be on the losing end of many of the careless and inconsiderate drivers on our roads lately. No one is safe with all the speeders, illegal bikers and other miscreants menacing our roads with apparent impunity. RCIPS traffic unit, wherefore art thou? Mr. ‘Bikelife 345’ just passed me at high speed going right past the WB police station! Response?? NONE!
