#RoadWarriorTalesJa–Crash course

This video doesn’t exist

You never know what lies ahead on the road. Yesterday, a man just walked off the sidewalk in front of my car as I approached a traffic light; not a look sideways or any sense that he might have been in danger. In Jamaican parlance, he looked like someone of ‘unsound mind, and he acted like one.

So today, after a quick errand to Cross Roads late Saturday afternoon, I was headed back to take a walk. But, as I approached Hope Road along Lady Musgrave Road, traffic seemed surprisingly congested; not like a weekday but sluggish. As I reached TGIF, I saw the problem a taxi crashed and a wrecker awaiting (see 2 minutes into the video).

For many who see it, the feeling will be far short of an ounce of sympathy that another route taxi will be off the roads for a while.
