“I got up this morning with sour throat getting ready for work. I got a telephone call from my girlfriend crying and she told me the news and it was completely out of the blue. We knew she was away, we known she was on the street and all, I was just in shock. There is nothing I can say or nothing I can do. I feel helpless completely. Aggie traveled early and we are so happen that in the time that she travels many places from end to end. She had already planned her summer to go back home.”

    I see the way these people drive in Belize. People forget that a car can become as deadly a weapon as a gun. The roads in Belize are so bad and drivers do not take that into consideration and more times than any the driver has been drinking.
    Alcoholism is also a lethal weapon, we see how many times while under the influence one person kills another.

    I believe that it is time for the transport division to inspect all taxi and see that they are in good running conditions. I know that our roads are crap, and that is not an excuse to say the road cause the incident. We need to start to hold the Taxi man accountable for endangering the lives of others.
    They need to do routine test on all taxi drivers to see that they are in good health, be able to perform the job, ( drug test,) and every day the taxi man should report to police for inspection to know that they will care for the lives of the people they are entrusted with. place speed traps on the high way,
    check points for drunk driving, drug riving.
