    Drivers licensed and experienced from North America are generally more skilled, and cognizant of road saftey regulations than those from small, impoverished, and / or corrupt caribbean islands such as Jamaica or Honduras.

    So THIS is how your locals solve their issues and minor disputes – with knives and machetes?!

    Don't they have CCTV in that area?  would have thought they would have got the assailant quite easily by now.

    Like any other part of the world Cayman has its fair share of drivers who have no clue about the skills and requirements of driving, other than generally keeping their vehicle on the road. However, while I do not intend or wish to be discriminatory in any way, the fact is that many, many underskilled drivers come to us from countires where they have never driven a motor car – for many a scooter is a luxury and for many others, they drive just as insanely like they do in their home countries; yet our system allows them to drive just after getting off the plane! That is indeed a fact. So, like so many other ills affecting Cayman, the inherent fault is in the system – poorly designed roads & roundabouts, poor driver testing, poor enforcement!!

    Not to mention that all nationalities are guilty of texting or otherwise typing on their PDA's while driving – more dangerous than DUI!

    Are you serious??? “Well trained and Educated”…
    I lived in Europe for a two years, your statement has to be a joke!!! Unless you’re speaking for yourself???

    So, like, you get into a little altercation over a minor fender bender and instead of discussing it like civilized people, you, Mr. Neanderthal, stabs the other person. Then you get back into your car not knowing if the other person is alive or dead, bet your girlfriend was well impressed! Complete loser!

    Police should pay more attention to bad local and jamaican drivers. Tailgating, no indicating, agressive overtaking, speeding.

    Every day I see these bad drivers making the roads unsafe. As a well trained and educated European driver it is horrible to drive here.

      So … I take it you've never driven in London, Paris or Rome then?

      An uttermost ass are you.

        Having driven in all three cities, Cayman is much worse.

          He is right "whodatis". Cayman is too lawless. Perhaps you should visit these places and see for yourself. :-/

          It is not easy nor is it a pleasure driving in Cayman. FACT.

        Whodatis, clearly you have not, for only an idiot would try to compare the three cities. Rome, yes its chaos, rules not obeyed, Paris, slightly more organised (apart from the Arc de Triomphe roundabout) but generally safe. London, police, cameras, cctv, mobile cctv just try to do something wrong and it will be on film and you will be fined or behind bars.

        As for here..yes its bad, people still talking on mobiles, nowhere near enough police, drunken driving, visitors driving wrong side of the road and a lot of aggresive Honda drivers and taxi drivers.

        As usual your tactic to not look at or solve Caymans problems but try to deflect attention elsewhere with erroneous statements fails abysmally.

      • Whodatis says:

        For the record, I have driven in every location apart from Rome however, popular reports speak of a less than pleasurable driving experience in the Cty of Love.

        In regard to drawing comparisons – I fail to see why that criticism was sent my way as the initial poster is who introduced that particular tactic. I was simply replying totheir comments.

        As for standards of driving, I have not said that Cayman is ideal, however, I have experienced equal or greater aggression and bad habits while driving through both London and Paris. E.g. on the A406 (North Circular) in London and navigating the Arc de Triomph after a nail-biting trek from Calais down to Paris.

        These are my experiences. If someone wishes to deny them then more power to ya, lol!

        It is what it is.

          Whodatis, what do you expect, driving Cayman style on the A406 North Circular is always going to get the natives angry-if you drive normally, its a walk in the park.

        Isn't there a saying "when in Rome"? It can be aptly used here, people do not bring your bad driving habits from around the globe to Cayman.

      When it comes to driving, many police officers are part of the problem. Do not expect them to be part of the solution.

      I am always flabergasted that some people seem to have the talent to judge whether someone is local or Jamaican just by looking at them. Oh my!

        If you cannot tell the difference you plainly do not know local culture.

      Yesterday i was run of the road by a honda tailgating me on 5 feet.

      He caused an almost accident while overtaking several cars.

      It happens a lot, and i must say, the drivers in these cases are always "locals".

      I can't speak for european drivers, but i see the point.

      You are not only "well trained" but apparently psychic – you can tell someones nationality and educational levels just by looking at their driving.  Incidentally, perhaps you can explain the "educated" point – what exactly does someones education have to do with their driving.
