Have your say

After the tragic accident on Anderson Street recently, its disgusting that motorists driving from Ocean Road up here still drive excessively fast and completely ignore the give way signs on the roundabout.

Four times in the past week I have had to take urgent action to avoid a car ploughing through me at 50-plus mph and it's been a regular occurrence for months before that.

Something needs to be done to stop these morons before they have blood on their hands.

Incredibly, they accuse me of being at fault as well so maybe instead of buying these young men Mercedes and BMWs, they should buy them common sense and driving lessons.
