Dear people of SXM,
No time to sugar coat this issue. Time to ban scooters. Simple solution. I see no other option. The law cannot handle these suicides/murders, correct? So ban them! When scooters have proven to be more detrimental to society than handguns, its the simplest answer. Let us break this down, Dutch side police are only interested in the level of tint on your car window..call them about an important issue & unless you are a friend or family, they do not respond, or they laugh at you & will taunt you for life! Personal experience...They act on a pick & choose response...like the Fire department..they issue fire warnings YET, if you call them about a fire, i can assure you they will not respond. Again, pick & choose response only..
French side, Gibbs & Patrick...no care in the world. Heads in clouds, or maybe stuck in the sand? When a scooter kills one of their daughters, we will hear the cries. Until then...crickets...
When an official from the Dutch side or French side have been affected by 1 of these scooters, that is when we will see rapid change. Until such time, we are all at risk at being killed instantly by 1 of these irresponsible drivers. Russian roulette driving through FQ.
2 lives lost in one day on scooters. Are we to mourn the lives lost or thank the lord that the irresponsible drivers of those scooters did not kill innocent bystanders as they recklessly rode around, carefree. Should we feel sad for them? Personally, I don’t. I feel as though my family survived being murdered by them. Everyone reading this should also feel grateful to be alive, that you nor your family was hit by a selfish person on a scooter. If we cannot ban the scooters, let us shame them. Uneducated individuals acting in such a manor on a scooter with no helmet, driving at high speeds, cutting off every vehicle in sight.. that is a weapon. No better than a gun! You fell? You hit a truck? You died? Sorry for you...thankfully though, my family was spared from your stupidity! RIP
