Accident in 2018

(PRESS RELEASE) — The Royal Saint Lucia Police Force would like to remind road users, both motor vehicular and pedestrian traffic, to adhere to traffic regulations when utilising our roadways.

A total of 503 accidents have been reported to the Traffic Units in Castries and Vieux Fort, from January 1, 2019, to date. Twenty-four of these incidents involved pedestrians, one resulting in loss of life.

In an effort to reduce traffic violations, including improper use of roads by pedestrians, there will be an all-out campaign by police to clamp down on traffic violations.

Drivers are encouraged to ensure all relevant documents with respect to insurance and licenses are up to date, as there will be no exemptions in enforcing these regulations.

We wish to thank the public for their support and continued cooperation in our efforts to foster safer road conditions for all.

    Persecution of his Bride due to ignorance and small-mindedness.
    I Proclaim on the rooftop that the “King is coming to redeem the earth of its curse.”! I announce to the ends of the earth, that the “King is coming”. And that the days of Noah are here. “Prepare ye the way of the Lord and make straight his paths.” Tell all the world that I am coming back soon. “I am coming for those who have laid their burdens down”. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
    The father says: I will strip the earth of the curse it has been under and restore it back to its original state. Your stay here is much more temporary and shorter than you realize. Now to address your concerns; I have promised you that I will pour out in these last days, all that you will need to sustain and to be risen higher in me, as I know how dark it has become. Because I am allowing this; I have warned you thoroughly about how all that is good will be called evil and evil good. I have warned that much of what is written in my word will come to pass in this generation before I come for you.
    It is nowhere; yes, but I have not left you and you are equipped with all you need. You are trained and you are walking in my power and authority, so stand. Is there anything too hard for me? Speak boldly and proclaim that the “King of Kings” is coming to redeeming the earth of its curse. And I am bringing to myself my people as they have obeyed and trusted me at great costs. You have the keys to my kingdom; I have given them to you, and you must use them. Those keys hold the answers you are seeking and will bring a higher level of understanding of what is occurring as well as open the door that is before you. I have given you keys because you must have them now for all that is happening.
    This is very important now my bride. I have spoken of this open door and how it is now time to enter in. You hold the keys to this, I await you. It is easier than you think. Do not make this complicated for yourselves, it is a matter of occupying. Come to me and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to you if there are areas in your lives where you are being held back? Boldly proclaiming my word each day in your lives unlock revelation as truth becomes established here dispelling the darkness. This must be done constantly, declaring truth always, standing your ground, being rooted in me and my word never wavering, unmovable, unshakable. This is everything; you in me can wield a power this world has never seen since I walked the earth.
    * These are exclusively the words of –Yahuwah and his son Yahushua Mashiach.
    God the Father, the Great King wants his name to be promoted in the four corners of the earth. Repent now; get baptized and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, those of you who are in the valley of decision. Do not procrastinate any longer but go ahead and choose God, for when the door and the books are closed no one will be able to enter in. God is sending warnings after warnings. We are in the End Times and he does not want ANYONE to Perish. Time is running out, get saved now while you have time. He is the only way to salvation. Amend your ways and you will be allowed to remain in the land. Let those who have ears to hear and those who have eyes to see. Repent now! Remain strong, be bold, courageous and steadfast in your faith.
    The Lord is saying that: there are people in the churches, in the pulpits, the choir, the church boards, (church in general), who claim to know him but do not have a personal relationship with him, his spirit does not dwell in their hearts and they need to learn how to build a relationship with him, so he can dwell in their hearts. Repent now, pray without ceasing, read his word daily and speak to him as your best friend or father. Do not hesitate to do this as his judgments have already begun. The end of everything has begun.
    Credit to Brother Shomrim, may God bless and protect you my, brother.
    - God’s messenger.

  3. Driving on the right

    Some of the CRAZIEST drivers I've ever seen, St Lucians.

    It was funny; you could instantly tell a tourist from an islander.

    Only an islander would use a minibus to over-pass multiple vehicles on an uphill ahead of a blind curve...

    Smdh.

    Please take care of yourselves and each other, St Lucia.

  4. DAMNNN !! YOU ALL CAN'T DRIVE -- Been said it.

  5. Wow those figures are quite alarming to say the least.

  6. What about comparing this years figures to last year or previous year. Or maybe to other countries similar to ours. Btw way why attack the drivers. You don't think they are doing what they were taught by the "Driving School".

    • Don't blame driving schools for the brainless behaviour of some drivers, you are probably one of those drivers that do what they want once they obtain their licence.

  7. justice for all

    St. Lucia has a bunch of brainless drivers operating vehicles on it's roads, including some police drivers who must go back to driving school, or did they ever went to driving school. ? we must seek and punish those so call drivers before they become mass killers on our roads.

    • I totally agree. I live overseas, when I visit St. Lucia, my homes, I am totally shocked by the way some of the people drive home. Some of the bus drivers, drive crazy, just to rush to make money, couldn't careless if passengers are on board. It's all about making money. Some local drivers are just as bad, they drive too reckless, overtaking near a bend or a brow of a hill. They can't see round the corner, but they still over take. This is madness to the highest degree.
      The government needs to come down on such reckless drivers, if not, lots of lives will continue to be lost needlessly. Not sure if there's any speed limit.
      The Marisule high road by Glace supermarket, URGENTLY needs traffic lights or an overhead bridge or walk way for pedestrians. When the Gros Islet bus drop you off, you can't cross the road, traffic fly pass madly. This is a dangerously area. No Zebra crossing, nothing for pedestrians. You have to dash quickly across the road before you get knock down.
      Going down the hill, near to James Morgan hotel, in either direction, it's very very difficult to cross the road. Is the government waiting for lots of casualties to happen before they take action.
