      Mostly, yes, but the non Caribbean expat showing off his new Audi on south sound road yesterday reminded me it takes all sorts. Can we please get more and more effective enforcement. Whay no speed cameras?

        You didn’t mention the model of the Audi, but in any case I am always amazed that people purchase or import so many sports cars to Cayman. What is the real purpose of a Corvette, Alfa Romaro, Lamborgini or other super fast car? Showing off in parking lots or in front of fancy restaurants is one thing, showing off on Caymans poorly disigned and hardly maintained roads is another.

    Can someone please educate these drivers that unless you’re passing traffic or turning….STAY IN THE LEFT LANE…. that’ll reduce some accidents.

    I’ll educate the dumb-ass drivers of cayman reading this who did not know that next time about taking roundabouts. I don’t have the energy today!

    Wow I’m surprised there wasnt fatalities in both cars. The lack of respect for the road or life is appalling.

    Cyclists being mowed down, police cars involved in accidents, people on the phone, speeding trucks depositing their loads on the traffic behind, poor indication on roundabouts, speeding vehicles in residential areas, motorcycle wheelie shows almost every day and almost daily near death experiences. Driving is poor in Cayman. The police need to police all the laws and not be selective, there must be stiffer fines and penalties

    i drove past there at 10 am and it was clear what happened. The car travelling North was speeding, lost control on the corner, hit the median and landed in the South bound lane hitting a car. The skid marks paint the perfect picture. The End
