  1. Is de police to be blamed for all these accidents whenever they apprehend a drunk driver they just collect de bribe and let them go dat driver should be charged and sent to life improsinment

  2. this is the sort of nonsense i am talking about the law says that you have a legal limit yet people drink to drunk then drive and kill people, the time has come for us to urge our govt and those in parliament to enact manslaughter neglient homicide etc starting with a minimun of 15 years to 75 years once convicted. This madness has to stop.
