    Think the type of vehicle is just a coincidence. The problem here is SPEEDING. We need police on the roads.

  4. Nightlife says:

    We need to start issuing speeding tickets. A good revenue earner for the Police Department.

    getting a drive licence in Belize is a big Joke. We put boys on the road with no clue of how to drive…RIP

    Seat belts reduce death & injuries, a lot of us complained in California when the seat belt laws were passed, having to pay fines that increased each time someone was caught in a moving vehicle unrestrained has encouraged almost 100% compliance. We should try it.

    HELLO??? Its not the vehicle brand that causes the accidents…has to do with drivers being responsible and focusing on the road.

    What can the government do??

    1. Stiffen penalties on traffic offenders

    2. Lower import duties on new vehicles to encourage/facilitate newer vehicles on the road.
