    1. Proper public transport
    2. More police enforcement
    3. Cap importation of cars older than a certain year (10 years if we’re being generous)
    4. Rigorous inspections
    5. Proper education and road testing

    Would cost less than the current projects that are clearly only being put forward to line a few people’s pockets, and have a much better impact on lifestyle in Cayman overall.

    The solutions to our problems are too simple for us not to push forward.

    It sounds as if the driver really was lucky, as the car apparently decided to do that all on its own. The driver did not drive the car into the wall, no. But the car he was driving just lost its mind and smashed into a wall.

    I’m not sure how “lucky” the driver was, compared to all of the other drivers on the road who did not happen to have such luck, but managed to stay on the road instead.

        and those coming from outside of the Caribbean, thank you very much. Lets be truthful and inclusive here. I’ve been nearly hit by those coming from all walks of life.

      Bermuda is smaller and has more road accidents, more injuries and deaths.
      But they mostly have 2 lane roads that twist and turn with no road shoulders and stone walls on both sides. And they have thousands of kamikaze scooters on its roads.They honk when approaching a blind bend to notify oncoming traffic they are coming.
      Cayman roads are open and mostly cars. Accidents mapping and analysis is overdue.

    A female driver was speeding heading West, lost control and a severely impact to our fence occurred around 4.15 pm. She was in bad shape.
    There are so many fences bashed in that it is easy to be confused. This picture is right but not the story here.

    Pass that stretch of road daily and routinely get passed by cars going well above the posted max of 50mph.. corner? no difference…. car coming towards us? no difference ….. car exiting Midland Acres? no difference …. 9 cars ahead of me? no difference: in their minds, it’s a perfect opportunity to overtake as if the mission is simply to get ahead of me.. regardless of the consequences!

    For the love of Country can we please introduce points system for insurance purposes. My gosh, reckless acts like the accident above should have consequences. Happy to learn no serious injuries occurred.

    Speeding like a demented idiot for a car to fold up like that. Another fool heading for an early grave! Thank God no other vehicle was involved or it would have been a different story. When will these boy racers ever learn.
