    It would not surprise me if the bike rider was trying to overtake on the right side of the Domlec vehicle.

    License plate is TF092
    There is no vehicle on the road in Dominica with a license plate starting with TS

    These scooter drivers are a menace on the road; weaving in and out of traffic at will. They show a total disregard for traffic laws. I hope his injuries are not serious.
