A criminal act of dangerous driving

In the 23 years I have been visiting this beautiful island, I thought I had seen some pretty awful driving! But last night I witnessed – as a passenger in a car – what I can only describe as a criminal act of dangerous driving.

On moving slowly toward a roundabout, we all saw a very young child stood on the front seat, and incredulously, he was leaning out of the  passenger window.

On seeing our horrified looks, and gestures, the young mother, rather shamefaced, wound up the window but made no attempt to secure her child in his seat. She no doubt thought that by shutting the window, she had remedied the situation! You only can imagine the horrendous result if the child had fallen out of the window or indeed, if the car had been involved in a serious crash. And don’t even get me started on the motorcyclists who go tearing around, in nothing more that T-shirt & Shorts But minus a driving helmet. Can nothing be done to halt the ever-increasing bad driving by the (mostly) locals?
