Flyovers will be a
solution but they will
come at a cost.
Frightening is how I
view the call for
roundabouts at those
locations. Yes, there are
accidents but how
would roundabouts help
in cases where the
driver dozes off or races
through a red light?
The roundabout on
Central Road, Trincity is
already an absolute
nightmare for me.
No, no, no Mrs
are not the solution.
Have you heard the latest news?
Seven accidents over the weekend with
one person losing his life! Families and
loved ones are now left to grieve.
Judging from the state of those
vehicles no one can convince me
otherwise that excessive speed was
not taking place. Reports verify both
wet roads and excessive speed. Yet
there are people still bent on increasing
the speed limit. I fail to see the wisdom
behind this. At the present speed limit
look what is taking place. Will this
become better if the speed limit is
Trinidad is such a small place that
you can travel to the two furthest
points in a matter of hours, why do we
have to speed and destroy innocent
lives? Let me say this, after someone
dies under these types of
circumstances no amount of "sorry" can
bring any real comfort to those loved
We need to understand this and
make the necessary adjustments on
the roads. Who knows, if the vehicles
involved were moving at a slower pace
probably this could have been avoided.
I cannot in my wildest imagination
say to anyone to increase the speed
limit. Just take a good look for yourself,
our motorists have already done so.
They have already gone back to their
speeding ways. To this what I can say is
to get that speed gun out there daily
and let our law enforcement agencies
get busy. This type of nonsense must
stop for whose knows who can be the
next fatality on the road. Sorry cannot
bring anyone back to life again.

Speed continues to
take lives on our roads
END OF THE LINE: Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron talks to pupils during a visit to Reach
Academy Feltham in south west London, yesterday. He chaired a farewell Cabinet meeting
yesterday before handing over power to his successor following the historic vote to leave the
European Union. Ministers gathered for the final session a day after Home Secretary Theresa
May was confirmed as the new Conservative leader and prime minister-in-waiting. AP PHOTO
As a Caribbean youth I often find renewed
strength and faith from following British
politics, after all we are a Commonwealth
nation with a Westminster Parliamentary
system of Government.
Despite being a Labour supporter with the
possibility of being labelled a "Blairite" I have
grown great admiration for David Cameron,
especially in the past weeks (post Brexit).
I was deeply saddened the day after the
UK population voted to exit the EU when he
uttered the words, "I believe this country
deserves fresh leadership," ushering his
intentions to stand down as Prime Minister
and leader of the Conservatives.
Whereas Thatcher or the "Iron lady" has
left her legacy of privatisation and Churchill
"the Titan" will be remembered for his
strength during World War 2, will Cameron
be remembered as the PM who took the UK
out of the EU?
Well simply, he will, but there is much
more to Cameron's legacy.
The Eloquent and quite polished MP for
the constituency of Whitney was into the
first year of his second term after an
incredible victory at the polls last year---
which saw the Tories gaining an outright
majority to govern the House of Commons.
One must understand that beside the
discussion or issue of the UK's presence in
the EU being an internal fight of the
Conservative Party spurred on by the right
wing, it has also been a contentious issue
with the population.
This was perfectly demonstrated by the
Population voting to leave. Had it not been
close to the hearts of the population Brexit
may have never occurred.
Therefore credit must be given to
Cameron for allowing the population to
democratically speak on this issue which
has impacted their life and sadly enough will
continue to have repercussions on the
The fact is this referendum was not
needed. But besides it being spurred by an
internal political fight the population was
happy to have the opportunity to voice their
Cameron must be further credited in that
after many of his senior Cabinet colleagues
joined the Leave campaign, he mounted a
very strong "Remain" campaign.
