  1. The women in black has fighting all the years for rights on the road. They never got what they wanted. Who feels it knows it. The people around the scene should have let them follow him since everything is a joke in Guyana.

  2. Traffic laws need to like the US. We Guyanese encourage a lot of slackness. People’s life seem to have no value.

  3. law makers will never see —dont want to see..since most of them are boozers that driving under the influence of alcohol and high on dope is fast becoming a plague.
    if the media keep following this case you will see this will turn out just like the many others where nothing happens…they pay the victims a bit of money and gone on their merry way driving again.
