    Sorry about your wheels, I’m glad you are okay. I know that it is tough to walk anywhere in Belize right now but our insurance companies or some other licensing entity need to start working with the authorities in the US where most of the cars are coming from to make sure our dealers are not putting salvage cars on our roads. They are affordable but deadly.
