  1. Condolences to the family. Guyana must raise awareness about child safety seats and children being put in back seats. It saves their lives. We need people to advocate this so these tragedies do not occur. Children under the age of 13 should not ride in front seats. They should be In Seat belts in the rear of the vehicle of in infant/toddler seats. Why is this not of importance to the government. Our children are our future. We must protect them!

  2. I’ve blogged it so many times; whenever I am out on the road and I hear the sound of a Tundra, I get to hell out of the way. Condolences to the relatives of this sweet little baby. RiP.
