    there was a pedesstrian pass by Divine Mercy Church paid for by Divine Mercy after one of their churchgoers was knocked down and killed. the PUP took it off when Berbey paved that section of the road. Now UDP has been in government for 6 years , a lot more businesses have moved into the area, numerous accidents reported, numerous deaths by accidents in that same stretch and still nothing done. not even a median painted on the road for vehicles turning left in to Belama. this is probably the most dangerous stretch of road in the entire country because it is in sity limits but there is no enforcement of speed limits, and the vehicles coming down the highway are speeding like madmen. I see airport taxi everyday doing 70-80 mph from haulover to the roundabout. they over any and everything.I would say at 20 people have died in this area over the past 10 years. it is ridiculous
