Our Island Roads are becoming more dangerous each day.

It is about time IW Council took responsibility to make our Roads
safe.

Motorists are not helping, so many vehicles continue to speed
etc on our Roads.

Stricter speeding rules etc are desperately needed.

What a pathetic, ill thought out, contradictory comment to make. It’s usually best to switch your brain on before typing.

I’m at a total loss as to why you persist with these middle school comments. It doesn’t wind me up in the slightest, but only makes me pity your position in life’s food chain.

Slow down F.F.S

When will IW Council take responsibility for speeding motorists on the island.
It is obvious motorists won’t slow down, so measures need to be put inplace to slow motorists down!
Speed Humps etc etc

Why is this Council useless when it comes to Road Safety!!

Well if you actually had a brain you would be dangerous. The roads are already safe, it’s some of the know all drivers that are to blame.

It’s not the roads that are dangerous

It’s the people who lack the ability to drive to the road layout and conditions

Always speeding ….. Oh wait, yet the news article doesn’t mention the cause. Yet all these overly informed responses are in the know, best mates with “fat bloke down the pub” ?
Since we’re going to play speculation bingo, I’m going for aliens, big ol’ flying saucer in the road made the drivers take evasive action only to cause a collision.
