This is so sad, what makes it even worse that this happens all the time.

Can nothing be done to control these careless dangerous drivers of trucks, buses, etc? This happens all over the county.

The Malecon (Ave George Washington) is like a monster raceway for trucks. Pedestrians are frightened to even walk on the sidewalks.

Driving so dangerous and careless. Really can nothing be done? There should be serious consequences for these drivers. Police needs to take action.

David Collado stated that he was shocked., don’t be shocked, politicians need to take IMMEDIATE action. Unfortunately this is nothing. Just take a look at where we rate on the annual traffic accidents fatalities score.
