Coverley Exit to ABC Highway

Interesting Coverley Exit to ABC Highway

The death of Abijah Holder-Philips which occurred at the entrance/exit of Coverley to the ABC Highway will soon be forgotten EXCEPT for his parents and close circle of friends and family. Many continue to question the protrusion from Coverley which encroaches on the shoulder of the highway. Should we expect a statement from Chief Town Planner Mark Williams to explain why the Coverley Exit to the Highway was approved? #Mark Maloney

Here is a video captured by a member of the BU community of the funny looking arrangement.

    @Prodigal son

    That is exactly my point. These bitches denied Chickmont on grounds that the operations there would pose a significant hazard, now several years later a stinking DLP administration can say its ok for their Wheel and Deal partner in profit, to build this shite that has already caused one death. And this old ass two face shite talking about due care. The only people that do not drive safe on the roads are ZRs, Taxi drivers and ignorant people. All the rest try their best to drive to stay alive. I bet you when ignorant Alvin Cummin said he nearly hit that cyclist he did not see the lights to the front and back of the motor cycle. I bet that stinking moron will say there were no lights. So I guess he did not have any lights either. Real real jack ass

    SSS, too far east will eventually lead to a lot of ?????. You said: “He talks about he nearly hit a cyclist wearing black…Someone else with better vision would probably have seen the cyclist.” Are you serious?

    An idiot riding on the highway or anywhere in Barbados at night, probably without any lights or reflective gear and you suggest that the driver needs better eyesight. Fah real!

    And continued: “… If the authorities were serious about road safety, all cyclist would be asked to wear some type of reflector clothing to help with visibility. ” Again, are you fah real.

    Since when were the laws revoked that cyclist were supposed to have illumination.
    I thought they were still on the books.

    In this modern era of gangs and drugs and people with all sorts of guns; some serious shiiite crimes you honestly are condemning the authorities for not deploying limited man-power to enforce proper bicycling practices.

    That is as unreasonable as the rules to protect idiocy in Russia…the folks there were providing guidelines on ‘safe selfing’ after over 10 deaths and multi injuries. The rules cautioned against no standing on railroad tracks, no climbing onto roofs, and no posing with guns or tigers. Duh, duh and duhhhh!

    A cyclist wearing dark clothing at night on our road is an accident waiting to happen. Whether the driver has 20-20 vision or the poor sight of an elderly senior.

    I hear your personal anger with the gentleman but your rational on the issue is off-based.

    Nanci, it is now common practice for many drivers in Barbados to ignore, Traffic signs, traffic lights and road markings, especially double yellow lines in the middle of the road.
    Personally if I had a son or daughter now learning to drive, I would ensure that right after passing his /her driving test, or even in conjunction with their driver training that they are enrolled on a Defensive Driving Course. A better investment than enormous bulldozer type front bumpers.

    He talks about he nearly hit a cyclist wearing black. How old is he again to be driving on the people road at night. I bet you he wears glasses too. Someone else with better vision would probably have seen the cyclist. But here again is another point. If the authorities were serious about road safety, all cyclist would be asked to wear some type of reflector clothing to help with visibility. He nearly hit the cyclist because his eye sight is not so good.
    …………………………………………………………………………………
    Is it Swipe at the Elderly Season? I too have encountered often times cyclists in dark clothing at nights, and have only seen them at the last moment. I was on the Eye study programme which ran for a number of years in Barbados a while back, and have received many praises for my perfect vision. There are many young people out there driving whose vision, have been impaired by many unnatural factors.
    In Barbados, to put it mildly, if you do Shite, you can always count on the backing of many people out there. Shoot ,or powder, the messenger.

    Do you ALL see how stupid SSS really is?

    I mentioned the word “CYCLIST” and he immediately assumed I meant MOTORCYCLIST. In fact it was someone riding a BICYCLE in the area of that clump of bushes as you exit the Kendal Hill gas station and drive on to the ABC highway. It was a young man dressed in dark clothing, the BICYCLE had no reflector, license, headlight, or anything that would identify it. And ir was because my eyesight was good that I did not hit him. And further SSS feels that they “should be asked”?? It is the law that already mandates cyclists to have reflectors and lights on their cycles. The wearing of reflective clothing, or at least light coloured clothing is common sense.

    , Sorry SSS I will NOT engage in invective like you, or against you, nor will I engage you, even in a simple conversation, suffice to say that even in two lifetimes you will not, or could you, ever even aspire to reach my heights, so your name calling has no effect on me. If, as you say, you know yourself you will know what I am speaking of. Sleep well tonight.

People are free to choose whether it is self-defeating or self-aggrandizing; such rights find their support and higher realization in the irremovable laws of God and the inalienable laws of nature.

    Dompey, interesting observation re Cumming’s “statement regarding Double Negative”.

    With your earlier foray in psychological aspects of self-aggrandizing and free-will and so on I anticipated that you accepted that people can do as they like and that they cast invective in various ways. But you like you did only talking pretty!

    There is the high brow method you noted from Cummings and of course the more standard ‘low’ brow lambasting from SSS.

    So if you call him on your perceived no-ball, then SSS bowl quite a few too. You din call her…so get real and let the people cuss each other, do.

    The last time we had a cuss-out here, David was able to step in and moderate a resolution like a real proper industrial relations guru. So he is certainly up to it if needed here again.

    Yes, I do believe that man is at liberty to do as he wishes, so long as he is willing to accept the consequences to be had, whether positive or negative. What is there to stop a man from doing as he so desires, if his conscience has been aroused? Certainly, not the human law which is predicated upon the backing of physical-force, or moral and divine laws which are infused with the threats of eternal – damnation?

    Internal and external constraints will not retard a man’s passions and desires, if and when his conscience has been aroused. The Pagan philosopher Socrates was a prime example of a man whose conscience had been aroused. He put trust in his own judgment and opted for death over life and died a man upholding his convictions irrespective of the common consensus of his day.

    Domps, a few years ago I read this book on the value and efficacy of colonic irrigation and the author extolled its benefits for all aspects of health maintenance.

    He even spoke of its tremendous benefit for fixing aspects that seemed so counter -intuitive.

    Now I know that you are a learned fellow and will tell me that there are also many studies which rebut those benefits but really bro I would still suggest you consider a colonic irrigation to ease your constant verbal diarrhea….

    I thought your question centered around personal-autonomy and self-determination of which you replied: so a man is at liberty to do as he likes? And of which I replied yes! (I am paraphrasing here now) De Ingrunt, I read Nelson Mandela’s book called Long Walk To Freedom many years ago, in which he expoused my very sentiment regarding self-realization. Mandela, said that his conscience had been aroused to the point that he was willing to do whatever it took to free his people, even if it entailed giving up his life to achieved such goal.

    De Ingrunt, let me leave this little something for you to chew on before I depart for the night: do you know that the entire concept of Christianity is predicated upon principle self-determination? Well brother, God in all of His omniscient didn’t wish that man becking to his every call as one of those highly intelligent robots at MIT would do, so what did He do: well, He fitted Adam and Eva with this thing called freewill aka self-determination, and of which the both of the usurped and contravened His command when instructed not to. But the point I wish to stress here is this: hadn’t for the free-thinking spirit of the both of these sentient beings would they have acted on they own recognizances and disobey the Moral Arbiter of the universe?

    It is quite simple because in Christianity one is allowed to choose between two diametrically opposed alternatives: everlasting-life or everlasting-damnation. Christianity does not retrict one to a specific choice, it offers one an alternative and whether one takes it or refuses to do so there are consequences to be had either way. And finally, this choice aka freewill lies between the dichotomy of good which is representative of God, and evil which is the representative of the Devil, but the choice is your for the taken. The Christianity faith in my estimation is analogous to our democratic form of governance where there is much choice, and the dictatorial form of governance where there is little or no choice.

    Here is an interesting tidbit about arch Cot

    There are many villains who must bear responsibility for the deaths of an entire Barbados family whose members died after their house fell into a collapsing cave at Arch Cot. Horrifically, we know that members of the Codrington family did not die all at the same time. As he was trapped in the rubble, Donavere (the father) talked to people at the scene after the initial event. Some of the children could be heard screaming for a time

    And what did the attorney general Dale Marshall said here is his answer

    “It could have happened to anyone” said then-Attorney General Dale Marshall before the bodies had even been pulled from the rubble.

    Dear MTW or WHOEVER manages THE VILLAGES AT COVERLEY…

    I just witnessed yet another accident by your unlighted entrance on the highway. A young life was already claimed there for the year. When are you going to at least put some reflectors or lights there? The man that was in the accident just now said he was ok, but by the palm tree that ended up being knocked down as well as the other foliage that was taken in the wreck, along with the sparks that flew as he humped the invisible sidewalk, I am thanking God that he did not lose his life there.

    Please place something there so that there are no more accidents. By the way, I wouldn’t be surprised if this man sues. It was a really expensive car.
