The Dominica Police are investigating a traffic collision on Saturday which resulted in the death of 19-year-old Jahrun Pascal of Stockfarm.

According to Police PRO, Simon Edwards, the accident occurred at about 540 pm on Saturday, June 27, 2020, on the Fond Cole public road in the vicinity of the Fond Cole bus stop.

    Dominicans should be hitting the streets demonstrating for better policing and better traffic regulations and we just sit on our laurels waiting for what? (only God knows)

    Chief Carbon, it’s time to stop doing the bidding of your political puppet masters and start being the police chief in Dominica. There is a traffic department and if the men and women of that department are given proper leadership and guidance there are many things which they can do to help reduce the carnage and death on the roads in Dominica. What plans does chief Carbon have? I guess he’s waiting for his puppet masters to give him instructions on what to do. Boss, do your job.

    How many more of our young people have to die before we decide enough is enough? No one should be on a bike or scooter without a helmet!

    When are we going to see riders of motor cycles with proper head gears? Why isn’t the traffic department ensuring that all riders are fully geared up before coming on the road? Too many deaths as a result of motorists not wearing proper head gears. Go out and enforce the law!!!!!

    The young man is dead and nothing can be done for him again. May his soul rest in peace. I pray he was insured though so his at least his family don’t have the expense to give him a decent burial.

    Another scooter death with no helmet. I always question the safety of these scooter on the road. very few of them have insurance , and few of them are safe for road use. The riders most have no license to ride.
    Its time the police take control of them. One pass me in Roseau one night with a bulb hanging on the front for his head light and no tail light
    in my days of riding police use to stop us even to check the tires.
    Now no one check nothing.

      The scooters are safe enough. It’s the people that ride them! To make matters worse without helmet… No police to enforce traffic laws. To busy to arrest and interrogate opposition politicians and supporters.

        Those scooters safe man ? The traffic police have a programme to inspect them before renewing their licence and vehicle tax like they do for vehicles? Schupes man, some of them things not even register and were even stolen in the French islands I understand. We are a rogue headache island.

    Allah boy so sad. So many of our young people especially our young men are dying man. This can’t be real and if all you want to sit there and say people dying everywhere too bad but I just feel there is a demand on the lives of our young men and you parents should pray hard for them and even hide them or send them out of Dominica for a while, just as the mother of Moses had to do when Pharoah was killing the baby boys. My deepest sympathy to family and friends of the deceased.
