  1. Since they don't know how to drive safety they should put stop lights on all the highways and police officers to issue traffic tickets! they have NO respect for human they drive like crazy going where? the island is this BIG! those Mini Vans needs major maintenance work, but who is checking?

  2. Really?? The only regret the police should have is that they have NEVER enforced a single traffic law. Has anyone ever seen a car being stopped on the rd for reckless driving? Whey de police at??????
