    I am not sure of the circumstances of this accident. However i beleive it high time our ministry of transport take tough actions against motorist.It i time to install speed cameras, speed limits need to be enforced and regular police patols on our roads. I visit St lucia frequently and i have had four near misses with other driver coming towards me in blind spots. My wife has vowed never to return to the island again after the last encounter.
    To the family of the deceased may god strenghten in your time of sorry.
