    Default Big Accident in Sosua

    There was a big accident last night and traffic was being diverted around at the beach on Hwy 5. Looked like a bus and big rock truck. Anyone have details ? Probably someone lost control on the speed bump ?

    Those trucks usually charge through, relying on their horns to get other vehicles out of the way. Looks like it didn't work this time.

    I guess the new speed bumps aren't doing their job.

    Gonna go out on a Limb here and say maybe the Speed bump CAUSED the driver to Lose control of his Vehicle and is responsible for this ..
    Sosua is just an absolute and complete Cluster F* ..

    It looks like the Honda was trying to squeeze by the truck on the right in the motorcycle lane or maybe even the bus and ran our of room.
    Every taxi is trying this technique trying to skirt traffic and especially taking the speed bumps too fast trying to pass a responsible car which is taking them safely. AMET needs to stay there and pass out tickets for passing on the right.
    They can make a fortune.

    Tickets won't stop them.......
    They need to be arrested, charged with reckless driving......
    Serve time if it results in an accident and hit with a large fine......

    Looks to me from the video that the truck was going too fast with crappy brakes and in order to not plow into the blue van the truck scrapped along its side. The truck then turns back into his lane to avoid oncoming traffic and plows into the bus and in turn hits the hyundi. Just my uneducated deduction

    Yesterday I saw multiple motos going way too fast in a commercial/residential area. There were 2 cops there stopping others for registration violations. They didn't even try to do anything about the motos. I hate that sheet.
