  1. Its time we put lots of these drivers in jail…Many innocent lives are being lost on our road carelessly.It would be an eye opener for many to take more care on the road,,For our poor population we are having more than 100 plus death for the year..The police need to stop taking bribe and do their jobs.

  2. One of the big time drug king is down,many more to go,all the money you got cant help you this time,the poor dumb man was going home from work while you were going home from the bar and you run him over,I hope they dont put him on bail so he can run away from the country.
