    i was in Dominica last year for the carnival. I was great but i did notice that a lot of vehicles would drive at high speed, even on shall narrow roads.
    Seeing bus/cab drivers doing this alarmed me.
    I have recently published a health book giving drivers guidance on how to manage the stresses of their job, With advice on how to stay alert, considerate and maintain a professional approach to their job. With lots of info on healthy eating and exercises that a driver can do to encourage a healthy attitude and sustain their lives.
    This manual will help, It would be a positive start to give the public and tourist some comfort that Dominica does care about lives lost to vehicle accidents.,
    If readers could to let Minister Officials, Tourist Agencies and drivers know this book is available from Jays LTD, 42 Kennedy Avenue Roseau, TITLE: Health & Well-Being For The Professional Driver, This book is also available from Dominica Taxi Association, 16 Steber Street, Pottersville,…

    I’ve read numerous comments on this issue, and not one person has mentioned the lack of seat belts in our local buses. I tell you what, a significant number of road fatalities this year alone could have been avoided with seat belt usage. People always crying and praying for God to change things- well 1st we got to change our mindset in not using standard safety equipment. We are 9x more likely to survive a vehicle accident using a seat belt. Looking at the accident pics, and from the reports out- I bet the driver was using a seat belt (usually the only person on the bus who wears one), and he survived despite the side of the bus he was on took the full hit in the accident.

    Do the research, wearing a sit belt saves lives, and if we want change then demand every bus has a seat belt for every passenger. If not then just carry on and keep your mouths shut cause within 6 weeks we’ll be here on DNO again crying over the same thing.

      Where do most buses in Dominica come from and does the sources have many buses available with seat belts ? How much more would it cost to buy a bus with seat beats ? How much would it cost and how difficult would it be to have them fitted here in Dominica ?

    Any of the drivers arrested? Excessive speed was the one and only cause of this incident – Not an accident. Someone must be charged with vehicular homicide. This will send a strong and powerful message to speeding drivers – Letting them know that there will be consequences when someone dies on their vehicle due to speeding. But again, Dominica we talking bout; No law here. :twisted:

      How can you realistically police speeding in Dominica outside Roseau – put speed humps in strategic locations (something I would actually support as its the cheapest solution in my opinion) ? How much will it cost to implement and would it be worth it considering other priorities for the county ?

    Every day I see people, particularly bus drivers, overtaking on blind corners. It is only by the grace of god that more people are not killed. On the way to the Creole Music festival a bus tried to overtake 4 vehicles on a blind corner, and had to slam on his brakes, and cut up the vehicles he was overtaking as a truck appeared. It seems they have a total disregard to their own lives, the lives of their passengers, and other road users. Do the police ever prosecute for reckless driving?

    I don’t know what happened but I highly doubt the bus carrying the passengers was speeding. Usually these tourist buses would be driving a bit slower than regular traffic to allow the visitors to take in the sights. I would really like to know what happened. This is a sad day for the visitors and family and for Dominica. This is not a good start to the season at all.

    Listened to Matt this morning on the Hot Seat and was astonished to hear that DBS, the national radio station still has to report on this tragic accident. P&O Cruises, the operator of the boat, the “Azura” already issued a statement from the U.K. on Facebook last night, through their Sr. V.P. Paul Ludlow, expressing his saddness and telling the public that the bus carried 12 people, of which 10 were Azura guests, 1 dead and 9 injured.

    Such a sad story with reeling int’l implications for Dominica. Even worse that it’s another bad report for the tourism industry. Instead of offering only prayers We need more cautious drivers on the Road in Dominica. Some of the local businesses can help by erecting small signs/billboards along route advocating cautious and responsible driving. So this is not only a Government issue, every Dominican using the roads can do their part. The Police, traffic department needs to be more visible on the roads.
    I am of the firm view that Pond Casse area needs a Police and Emergency outpost. Essential services are too far from the central region, people can die waiting for help along those scenic but windy routes up the mountain and through the central region.
    Nowadays to blow approaching corners seems to be weak and a sign of cowardice, a poor and shallow mentality prevalent especially among young drivers.
    Dominicans shouldn’t only be reactive to everything..proactive planning avoids…

    No road rules being implemented. No regular vehicle inspections by a certain deadline or be fined. No ticketing of drivers. Bus drivers make their own rules here. Anybody can drive buses. They drink alcohol while they wait for passengers….they speed and overtake all the way to their destination in corners and over cliff hangers…other drivers andvpassengers should be allowed to forward these driver hire number to a certain department to deal with even if by a points system. I wonder if the police check dno for tips and ideas of improving theit job.

    As a British cruise passenger and a regular cruiser to the Caribbean I can tell you now that it is my intention never to set foot in Dominica again. The standard of driving is appalling and the treatment of vendors outlined by Carnival is the reason. The cruise Industry must bring in a lot of revenue to the Island but there appears to be no reinvestment.I will now ensure my family remove this port from their itinerary And ask P&O to do the same. My sincere condolences not only to the family of the deceased but to all the passengers/drivers on this bus who must be traumatised by this terrible fatal acccident.

    It appears the vehicle in front was turning the corner (or driving uphill) and the vehicle behind ran into the one in front. That driver may have been going too fast and caused the accident. Guilty without a doubt.

    Tourists visiting Dominica should make up their mind to walk to whatever destination/site they wish to visit. We have no roads suitable for automobile in Dominica. Yes, we have tracks paved with ASS-FAULT; But no roads. The visitors should be given proper instructions on the “roads” condition; Telling them to “RIDE AT YOUR OWN RISK.” :twisted:

      Yes, I remember that poor 18 month old Italian baby that was killed in a similar accident ivolving a tourist bus only last January and his mother seriously injured. People, these vehicles must be thoroughly inspected before every cruise season and not just any old policeman looking at them and make sure all passengers wear a seat belt. We must give an assurance to our visitors that they are safe with us. Dominica is beautiful but also treacherous, so we have to proceed accordingly.

    My condolences to the family and friends of the deceased, a very terrible accident wish all a speedy recovery, I can hear from their voices that they were British, it must be terrible for those people having to be on an island with such poor health care, ( I know I am going to get stick for this but before you do tell me what you know) You are boasting how you got improve tourist bisniss, again like melvillehall no hospital, there is no Troy mariama centre in Dominica, we don’t have hospital near to the airport, if the accident had happened closer to marigot or they were coming in by plane, where would they taken them . I don’t lie to people I tell them Dominica is the most beautiful n the world, I tell them we have plenty of fruits and food, but when come to the health care it’s non existent for the ordinary man, before you all start cussing me have you got a hospital that can take 20 Troy mariama patients no . So come tell me all you want Dominica needs to open thei

    Hi——i am not from DOMINICA but i have stayed in this beautiful paradise several times. i have driven hopped up cars and larger old big cars all my life . when i get in most vans or taxis on the island from Portsmouth to Roseau—-i am terrified. These gentlemen driving are good drivers but under conditions of road structure- narrow roads and very steep plunges —-you HAVE-to slow down ——you cannot drive to the max and expect to win every time. gotta remember if trying to make an extra run by pushing it to the limit cost you or someone else life then it becomes a crime .the island in its beauty is only so long and so wide sooooooooooo–slow down and all will enjoy the trips more–peace

    I have seen a video of the aftermath of the accident on Facebook and while the intentions may have been good by the individual who posted it, there are a few factors that we really really need to keep in mind during those times.
    1. I do not think that family members who are not aware of the situation would appreciate learning of or even seeing their loved one sprawled over in agony like this.
    2. I think that we should learn to refrain from making comments such as ‘he or she is dead’ unless we are trained professionals, nurse practitioners, ME’s, MD’s, etc
    3. I will again reiterate and plead with the health department and schools to undertake some form of emergency, first aid, or even first responder training in schools or community so that more of our citizens are prepared to render aid during such times.
    4. Something simple as securing the scene and preventing a constant flow of onlookers, photographers and directors to add anxiety to an already anxious scene.

    I wonder if all the preachers who come praying online whenever something goes bad, whether they pray offline in privacy. God truly hears us when we have a private heart to heart talk with him. He does not hear LOUD sounds for the world to hear or see. Pray for peace and protection and give him thanks always.

    Any accident that results in a death is very sad. My condolences to the family of the deceased. May the deceased soul rest in peace.

To the drivers of the vehicles I pray it was an accident that was unable to avoid; must not be easy with anyone involved.

  37. November 9, 2016

    When bus drivers are driving 100 miles per hour full with passengers ,to make matters worse sometimes on a wet road.If a bus or as a matter of fact there are no buses in Dominica ,there are mini vans,when these vans normally takes 15 people ,they squeeze people on on the other and to make matters worse they add little wooden boxes where there is a little space next to the seats in order to make more money.They don’t care about people’s lives,people reach in the town with cramped feet and creased clothes without forgetting the “smello vision” contest that you have to deal with alcoholics one the journey.Bald tyres are very common ,the most inexperience drivers drive the fastest on the road with no respect for pedestrians either especial the old and the little children.The gov’t should raise up the vehicle insurances in order for families to get proper compensation after the loss or injury of a family member .There are almost no speed limitation signs and danger signs on the…

      From the last photo the bus driver is in his lane. The car on the other had is in the bus driver’s lane… I am no expert but lets not jump to conclusions. I do agree that many bus drivers out there are reckless but I would like to believe that when they have tourists they make an extra effort to be above board (yes I know they should do the same for locals). this is sad and I hope that it is a wake up call to the authorities.

      You are correct. Those who gave you these dislikes did not appreciate what you stated. They appear to be guilty of something. Too bad for them. They never think that one day they, or someone they know could be affected.
      This is an area that must be addressed. The number of passengers they could take comfortably and the speed regulations. I think it is high time the government and the traffic department do something about that.
      Lives are too precious to take chances, A life cannot be brought back. Even those who are injured could die of their injuries. Some could be maimed for life.
      When will drivers ever learn to drive cautiously?
      Those who cause accidents, injuries and death should be sued for an exorbitant sum. It should be mandatory that all drivers have an insurance policy.
      The family of the British person who died will do their investigation and sue.

  38. November 9, 2016

    Since the evening of 3rd November a heap of Tarrish was carried on the road by heavy rain that left the entire lane heading south to Roseau blocked and the lane heading to portsmouth is partially blocked, with only in the middle clear. It would only take a backhoe 10 minutes to clear, but yet it is still there almost a week later on our only highway, between Colihault and Bioche. Reggie, Skerrit, Ian, Roselyn Paul all pass there every day but no one cares about safety. So our drivers are reckless and our government does not place emphasis on safety until a visitor dies. We are in a very sorry state in Dominica and unless we get serious we will continue to have these same things happening. I am deeply saddened by the death of the visitor and those taken to the hospital. Something needs to be done to ensure our drivers are safer and are tested for alcohol and drugs while using the roads. No I am not saying those involved in the accident were under any influence.

    I am currently visiting on the island and I am totally amazed at how reckless most drivers are. They are discourteous towards other drivers as well as pedestrians. I virtually feel like I am taking my life in my hands every time I venture from my residence.

    Oh my God! That ‘s not good folks. A very sad accident involving a tourist has occurred and I am deeply saddened by it. My condolences to the family of the deceased, and I pray speedy recovery for those hospitalized. Though DNO not give information on the cause of the accident but as a Dominican leaving abroad, I am very concerned about the manner our drivers conduct themselves on the road. They néed to learn to be safe first. I think they are too busy, reckless, and do not drive with other road users in mind, which make them very dangerous on roads that are very dangerous to drive on and something must be done about it. Not only that, but most times our drivers are under the influence of drugs or alcohol knowing that at no time will they be pulled over by cops. Also, the government does not pay attention to safety of our roads. On the EO Le blanc highway since last Thursday heavy rain brought a hip of Tarrish on the road that blocks a lane yet it still there.

    I do not understand what is going on in DA. This week alone has had at least three road accidents. i saw bloody persons been brought at the hospital today and it was a chocking sight to see. What is wrong with our drivers? What is going to happen to our tourist economy?
    And boy, thay clean that road so fast… i could not even make out the spot where the accident happened. We need to do better than that.

  44. Tell the Truth
    November 9, 2016

    We realize that accidents may happen but drivers must do their utmost to avoid them. When carrying tourists – visitors to the island from a cruise ship, be extra careful.
    This is another red flag for not visiting Dominica, which many will avoid. It is not the first time. Remember a few years ago of the little boy who died in an accident. The mother was injured. They were visitors. We heard no more of it.
    What does it take to remind drivers about driving safely? You have the road. You know you are to drive on your side of the road, proceed carefully, drive slowly and decrease your speed especially when turning around a corner.
    If per chance it is raining, the road will be slippery, slow down and drive cautiously. Know also that not everyone will get into an accident. The few who do, it could be cause of negligence. Those who do not, they are fortunate and by the grace of God. He knows..

    • November 9, 2016

      Accidents happen everywhere but it is a fact that our drivers are very recless. They always seem busy most times going to no nowhere, and will overtake anywhere, when you lease expect. I also think drivers need to be pulled over and be tested for drIvins under the influence of drugs and alcohol as well as texting. Also the authorities need to ensure roads are always safe and when there is debris on the road don’t wait for an accident to clean it. Their is some debris on the west coast road since independence and as of today it is still there! Safety must be everybody’s business and as I see it, neither drivers nor the authorities care a damn

        Until reckless driving is recognized as both antisocial and criminal, Dominicans will simply continue to drive like brainless twelve year-olds on crack.

    Hear ye! now that today you have heard his word harden not your hearts! We are at the hour of his coming! because our time is magnified by 1000 times to 1 his short day seems long to us. He is coming! John the Baptiste said that he was coming and he did. He said that he would come again himself! and he honors his words the most! He will come and he is coming! We will see the signs and not take heed doing our selfish chores. People. People People!!!! you hear, see and read!

        Judgement is for the lord! Examine yourself and help others move to that place of repentance and relationship. You are either hot or cold! his humble worker or his enemy! If you talk against him or his will or his word you will have much to answer to. He is a just, loving God who feels the pain that we feel but he is also a God of wrath toward sin. never will he hate us but he does not like sin. When he speaks in this condition his voice hits you before you even hear him! No storm,is as powerful as his voice in that manner. But he is compassionate, just loyal, loving and meaningful! Seek his face.

    The number of accidents involving bus drivers is a national disgrace. I am aware that we do not have all the details yet. However, why must there always be a bus driver involved? I will tell you why. They do not value their lives, or that of their passengers. And unfortunately, the docile passengers never tell them to slow down and drive more carefully and consider others.

        Whether or not I was there, you’re missing the point that’s why we can’t make progress. The point being that on a very regular basis, road accidents nearly always involve bus drivers. So, something needs to be done. Like I said, it should start with the passengers, who are paying their fare for a safe journey. If you have no solutions, please keep your opinions to yourself. Thank you.

      In those days when there were trucks and narrow roads, there were not so many accidents; hardly ever..

      So if a bus is driving at 20 miles per hour on the road and a careless driver speeding down the road overtaking loses control and slams in to the bus, are you telling me that it is the fault of the bus driver. SMH

    Where are you going with all that speed. Hope the courts will serve justice, for this excessive reckless driving.

    This level of impact and wreck is an indication of speed! On such a narrow and winding road… God bless Dominica! :oops:

    Almost every time that I pass along this stretch of road I see an accident about to happen. The straight stretch beneath the rock face tempts vehicles to overtake without making allowance for on coming vehicles on both the up-hill and down-hill corners.
