  1. you know a few years ago there was an accident with a bike and a pick up in that same area

  2. that's a Lucian thing ... speeding going NO where.they need more police officers on the roads issuing speeding tickets they would make a lot of money to help clean up Castries.

  3. I wonder if the bike got trashed

  4. New Testament Verse of the Day:
    "The second is equally important: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' No other commandment is greater than these."

    –Mark 12:31

  5. God wants him to be on earth

  6. Masye! What's up with all these accidents? PPl take it easy on the road.

    • I was taking it easy as f and a drunk dude still hit me. Moral of the story is that laws need to be enforced and the court system need to work swiftly to prosecute those that deliberately infringe on others' right to life.

  7. I was just behind him when this happened, he overtook me recklessly and I remarked to my passenger he is going far too fast, next thing as I rounded the corner he was laying in the road, his wrist was almost severed but luckily he was wearing leathers and a helmet and was concious so I knew he would be OK. People watch your speed, and drivers look for bikes.
