    Why does it matter if the human victim was a visitor or resident? It’s very unlikely there are any cruise ship passengers ashore by 8am. Shitty stores aren’t open for at least another hour. People don’t wait on the road for them to open.

    did they check the drivers phone?

    Half of drivers on our roads are texting and police have charged only 1 driver, and he admitted to it.

    Phone use is the biggest reason for accidents, not speed or drinking.

    Its also the reason, with the awful driving skills, for all the heavy traffic.

    Drivers looking at their phones causes delays at all intersections, roundabouts and traffic lights.

    That and the idiots that block roundabout entrances, sitting stationary in the middle of the roundabout.

    I read pickup and thought, well that makes a change from a Honda. Wadda ya know.

    Cayman needs hardscaped sidewalks and bike/scooter lanes like the modern urban community/destination it professes to be. Drivers would then need to stop TikToking while driving.

      I completely agreed. Due to lack of interest from CIG I built a sidewalk at Red Spot Beach on North Church Street requesting owners and CIG did the same.
      No one was interested. I went ahead anyway.
      Cayman needs a sidewalk all the way to four mile beach.
      Until then we remain a banana republic.

        Agree 100% especially now that you can’t walk it from the ocean side.

        What happens when the sidewalk is too crowded? More concrete isn’t the only answer. Aren’t you worried about Sea Grape Trees already?

          What sea grape trees. There is plenty of space to build sidewalks on North Church Street. The fish shack was a fine example and several other locations going north.

          The narrow strip at the North end of Fort George, alongside the traffic light is a very dangerous with cruise tourists spilling into traffic.
          The National Trust were approached to move the railings back to widen the sidewalk, they refused.!
          Perhaps they may wish to reconsider.
