2021 was a record year for car accidents in Jamaica. I dont think they ever had so many fatalities since the 90s. Young drivers, old drivers, blind people everybody is crash and dieing at a high rate. Lots of MarkX, Voxys and Taxis. Luxury car accidents are rare but they are sprinkled in there as well. These are all actually very safe vehicles but a combination of factors lead to the drivers exceeding the safety limits of the vehicle. It is not always of fault of the driver or extensive speeding combined with over taking. Sometimes its a case of being too comfortable. Be safe. Be vigilante. Check your tire thread, and suspension. Dont drive when you are tired.
