thanks for posting.
Very sad but not a surprise.
The driving here is beyond dangerous; it is insane. And, incredibly, getting worse.
I fear to drive the little Nissan I have, and pray every time I come over those blind rises that someone is not passing on the solid line as so frequently happens.
Of course, if I'm in Old 918, 6,000 lbs. empty, closer to 7,000 with fuel and small cargo, and one of those motorcycles or little boxes with the loud stereo and fancy exhaust goes under the front bumper, well, I suppose I'll be headed to the emergency room with severe contusions (si dios permite) and the other guy will be headed to the morgue, which may be what he was looking for. After all, passing against the line, racing each other between the airport and the Balashi light, "fading" around the corners at Calbas and the traffic circles, all this and worse comes with a price. To those who choose to drive this way, make sure it's only you who pays the price, not some innocent on his way home from work, or taking her kids to school, or enjoying a nice vacation on and otherwise nice island.
To quote the late Captain R. Upton: "There is no shortage of fools and unlucky bastards spinning the wheel of fate."
Bon dia from the land of dice-rolling drivers.

More traffic control should be instituted on the Island. We have had a few near accidents due to folks speeding.

Does anyone know of an English version online for Aruba new? The ones I used to look at don't seem to work.
