Block thrower smashed speeding car’s windshield

| 28/04/2014

(CNS): The RCIPS have confirmed that a driver who was driving through Bodden Town at high speed last Wednesday was slowed down unexpectedly when a piece of block was flung through his windshield. The driver, who had a lucky escape, was uninjured though his vehicle was damaged. According to a police spokesperson, the incident happened at around 9:30 on 23 April as the man drove between Everglo Bar and Chester's. He admittied that he was travelling at a high speed and has a loud muffler, which may have caused the attack, but police said they are currently investigating. Residents from the district who spoke to CNS stated that in the last few weeks there had been several other similar incidents.

While there have been incidences in the district in the past where rock throwing had plagued pedestrians in certain residential areas of the district and rocks have also been thrown at motorists on the East-West arterial and Shamrock Road, police believe that this is just an isolated incident as they said that no other cases were reported to them.

    Don't like speed in your community? Add closely spaced speed bumps. It will work wonders.

    Perhaps the RCIP will be awakened from their peaceful slumber by reading some of these submissions and actually stop and charge some of these maniac speeders before more people die on the roads.

    When the police choose to not enforce laws that they deem to be not important, this is the result.   Years ago I lived in a neighborhood off Hirst Rd. and there was a house behind mine where almost every weekend the music with the mega bass would go until 2 AM.  It was impossible to sleep even with the windows closed and the AC going.  Called the cops too many times to count, not once did they come out.  If I had gone over there and bashed the guys head in with a baseball bat or set the guys car on fire I'm sure I would have gone to jail and it would have been called a senseless act of violence.  Push people long enough and someone will eventually snap.

    I agree that it could have easily ended up badly, but it is getting to the point of what are the options? Wait until those idiot drivers run someone over? Call the police (year right!), confront them in person and anticipate to get shot or chopped with a machete?

    Sorry, I don't condone violence either, but unfortunately it seems that this is the only language a lot of those people who have no concern or considerations for others understand.

    IF our police would be doing their job and enforce the traffic laws every day, we probably would not be reading such a report today. Such a small Island, so many officers and no enforcement. WTH?

    Personally I am sad the block didn't hit the drivers head to knock some sort of consideration for others back into his brain.

    There are guys who doing motor cycle racing every evening along Hirst Road, past the college down towards Sunrise. Can't believe that nobody complained about this yet.

      Oh we have been complaining but as usual the Police not Listening. We called them again on Sunday afternoon, while this motor bikes were up and down on Hirst Road and into Whispering Waters development, and we have not seen a Police anywhere as yet. This has been going on for around three years now and so far the Police has not seen fit to put a stop to it.

      The motor bikes are not licensed nor are are the riders wearing helmets. I guess the residents need to come out and start throwing blocks at them to get the Police to get there.

        Why won't the police put a stop to it. We have contacted them many times about the same thing on the new west bay bypass. The same motorcycle drives at 6:45 every morning from west bay and wakes up our child. It's wrong!! Police if you want our people to trust and help you you have to help us and stop this noise! It's easy to stop just do it!

        Yesterday evening we watched the bikers speeding back and forth on Hirst Road on their daily jaunt of standing on the seats and pooping wheelies, no helmets and absolutely no regard for the law or the pedestrians on the street.

        We saw not one but two police cars, the first speeding down the road and no siren or flashing lights.  The second within minutes of the first, we though….finally. NOT. The second car actully crossed the bikes, let me add here the bikes are not street legal and I'd venture to say not licensed or insured.  They police did not even slow down.

        Calling the police is an absolute waste of time and money.  We're told that they need to catch them in the act….I guess that is not true now is it??  The truth of the matter is until some one is hurt or worse, KILLED they will continue to turn a bind eye.

    You should come out on the Queens Highway and hear them racing at night and on the weekend. By the burnout marks it would appear these are actual drag races. Even the blindest traffic cop could see where the action happens.

    • Right ya so says:

      You should hear them every night, but especially on Friday and Saturday nights, racing up and down the East-West Arterial between Lantern Point and the the Auto Spa – boy racers on their motorbikes and pocket rocket souped up Honda civics. And, when you call the police, they can't be bothered to come out.

        Typical country side behaviour.  We only have uniforms, we are always looking for a Police.

    I don't condone violence at all, as easily this story could have had a much worse outcome, and we are all someone's child! I will say that I live along a main road with a 30mph speed limit (which practically no one adheres to) and the loud muffler cars are disgustingly annoying, and even worse when paired with booming sound systems. The bikers racing by at 2/3am are by far the worst though! We were all young once, but wow – have some consideration for others who don't care to know when you are coming or going, not what you are listening to, and worse what speed your car/bike can do. And yes I know I chose to build there, but still – have some consideration.

    Was it the black Ferrari with yellow rims!!! LOL.   Hope the driver is ok

    This is not right and cops must clamp down on this. Folks can get hurt and I always think about the children.

    Sounds like someone had had enough of this driver's behaviour and decided to send him a message. Advice to this driver : after your windshiled is fixed try having some regard for others, okay?

    Nothing the driver did caused the assualt.

    Don't blame the victim, he may be guilty of speeding  but he didnt "cause" the attack.

      So you reckon he was the victim of an entirely random act of violence? Interesting. Tell you what, send me $10,000.00 and I will split the $100 million my uncle wants to get out of his country, okay?

    If people get fed up call the police, you could kills the person throwing blocks at their car, over what a loud muffler.

      And your point is?

      Hope that. Ignorant noise maker will take it as a warning.  Others should learn from his experience.  The police need to check those motorbikes for road worthiness, because some of those riders are skillful.  I ve seen some of their tricks.

    100lb test should do the trick.

    Perhaps this block thrower could spend some time along the Spotts road raceway as the RCIP certainly do nothing to control speeders there.

    There's a guy on a motorcycle that does the same thing every night in BT near Lorna's gas station / cumber avenue / gun square. Loud muffler back and forth with no helmet. Once people get fed up enough, there will be no windshield to protect him.

      And there are young kids roaring about on unlicensed bikes. I mean I used to do the same thing when I was a kid. But that was different. These hooligans need to be stopped!

      It is not just in those areas that this public nuisance is disturbing residents.  I live pass the Manse road junction on the main road and practically every night it is this loud noise from an motorbike, racing up and down the road.  Sometimes cars are racing up and down the road especially after midnight.  Where are the police?  

      How is it possible for these loud noises to be made by motorbikes and cars, when police used to prosecute drivers for having defective mufflers on their vehicles.  What is the answer to the loud music nusiance.

      The Bodden Town public beach is another problem area.  Loud music, drugs, and loofers.
