    Seems to me like the island made out pretty well this year considering the accidents and stupidity that usually plagues us during the Easter weekend. I am very thankful that there was only one accident and no other unfortunate incidents that would have otherwise ruined a lovely holiday weekend. I do have to say though, that we definitely need a far more present police force – especially during holiday weekends such as these where families are all bunches together, alcohol is flowing freely and people are boisterous and tempers can flare. I was back and forth between George Town (where I live) and East End (family lunch/dinner and Rum Point on Sunday) for most of the weekend with my children and I didn't once – not even once – see a police officer or a police car. No DUI checkpoints coming back from Rum Point, no police patrolling the beaches, no police presence in and around East End. We need to do better than this!

    Honestly, I'm surprised and grateful there were this few.  I followed several cars whose drivers were obviously well intoxicated from day long Easter brunch binges – no cops on the road for miles.  One of the vehicles almost ran another car off the road when they decided to overtake into oncoming traffic on the Esterley Tibbetts Bypass.  Another crossed the divider line on the shoulder and actually clipped a sidewalk curbing at the CostULess  roundabout.  Irratically speeding up to 50mph and slowing down to 25mph on the same straight stretch of 40mph road.  It's only luck that these people made it to their destination at all.  The question is, who is going to stop these people and when?  Would we have the accidents, the speeding, the drunks, the overt drug dealing, the sexual predation, the opportunistic robberies, battery, and break-ins if there were a visible regular functioning police "traffic dept" circulating the area with regularity?  I think not.  We need to make it riskier for those that take these illegal gambles.  I'll vote for which ever politician will pledge to deliver a serious effort in that direction this coming May.  We need to restore our reputation as a peaceful and safe place to live and stay.

      DUI should equal jail time.  A simple means of addressing a significant national disease.
