BASIC RULES FOR DRIVING IN KINGSTON

1. Turn signals will give away your next move. A real Kingston driver never uses them.

2. Under no circumstance should you leave a safe distance between you and the car in front of you, or the space will be filled in by somebody else, putting you in an even more dangerous situation.

3. The faster you drive through a red light, the smaller the chance you have of getting hit.

4. Never, ever come to a complete stop at a stop sign. No one expects it and it will result in you being rear-ended.

5. Never get in the way of an older car that needs extensive bodywork. The other guy doesn't have anything to lose.

6. Braking is to be done as hard and late as possible to ensure that your ABS kicks in, giving a nice, relaxing foot massage as the brake pedal pulsates. For those of you without ABS, it's a chance to stretch your legs.

7. Never pass on the right when you can pass on the left. It's a good way to scare people for a laugh.

8. Speed limits are arbitrary figures, given only as a suggestion and
are apparently not enforceable in Kingston.

9. Just because you're in the right lane and have no room to speed up or move over doesn't mean that a Kingston driver flashing his high beams behind you doesn't think he can go faster in your
spot.

10. Always slow down and rubberneck when you see an accident or even someone changing a tire.

11. Learn to swerve abruptly. Kingston is the home of the high-speed 'dally' , thanks to the KSAC, which puts pot-holes in key locations to test drivers' reflexes and keep them on their toes.

12. It is traditional in Kingston to honk your horn at cars that don't move the instant the light turns green.

13. Remember that the goal of every Kingston driver is to get there first --by whatever means necessary.

Forty persons died as a result of fatal crashes for the period January 1 to February 8 this year (2008). This equals the number of fatalities for the corresponding period last year. These figures were revealed by the National Road Safety Council, NRSC. Pedestrians accounted for most of the deaths, recording thirteen persons. Among those killed were five children under the age of 14 years. Eleven of the fatalities involved private motorcar passengers, and one PPV passenger. Five private motorcar drivers, and one public passenger vehicle driver also died in road crashes. Three pedal cyclists and six motor cyclists also lost their lives in traffic accidents.

^Tällaiset tapaukset todellakin ihmetyttää, mut eihän tossakaan (vaikka parkkipaikan ja jalkakäytävän välillä on yli 10 cm:n töyssy) tarvitse kuin antaa reilusti kenkää kaasupolkimelle ykkösen ollessa päällä, niin jo mennään.

Tapauksen tekee vielä isommaksi se, että ajajana oli Mutty Perkinsin vaimo:

Täytyykin kuunnella mitä - jos yhtään mitään - aina niin kriittinen Mutty sanoo seuraavassa radio-ohjelmassaan onnettomuudesta. Irvailijoita Muttylle ainakin nyt löytyy. Onneksi kukaan ei kuitenkaan loukkaantunut fyysisesti.

Edit. Mutty seuraavaksi aalloilla tänään klo 18 Suomen aikaa: [go-jamaica.com]

2nd edit. Uusin letkautus foorumeilta: "Clifton Brown bus can swim and Mutty Perkins wife car can shop". :-) :-) :-)

En ollut nähnyt tätä videota ennen. Ei oo tainnut olla vielä esillä Fi-Reggaessä.

Vuosi on 1984. Dennis Brown ja Promised Land tempaavat katsojan mukaansa Village Plazan kupeesta Constant Spring Roadilla. Matka jatkuu Half Way Treen kautta Hagley Park Roadia pitkin Causewaylle ja ilmeisesti aina Hellshireen asti, mutta katsoja jätetään valitettavasti pois kyydistä hyvissä ajoin ennen rantaa. Ois ollut kiva nähdä millainen Hellshiren ranta oli tuolloin.

Mielenkiintoinen ja harvinaislaatuinen pätkä Kingston-diggareille. Downtownissa tässä ei kuitenkaan liikuta, vaikka otsikko niin sanookin.
