I dont think no drivers in Guyana is not aware of the danger of drinking and driving.This was a unfortunated death.
Next thing..I am so sick of hearing people always have to be transported to Georgetown Hospital .These Hospitals should be provided with the necessary facilities to deal with these cases especially, if its a serious one ,rather than having to waste so much time going to GPH.
Sorry to have to say this but this is what happens when you drink and drive, motor skills are impaired, looking at this picture will tell you that the driver under the influence was unable to swerve from this parked truck, condolences to the bereaved relatives.
How sad, when will they learn that speeding kills.
Bartica, a small garden of bitter weeds. You ask for water they give you rum. With the demographic changes up there the gateway to the interior has become the gateway to vices. Take note, three persons of different nationalities were listed. The Guyanese died, the Venezuelan was taken to hospital and the owner of the truck is Brazilian. Bartica is the last place in Guyana where HIV would disapair.
you do not know what the hell you are saying ,none of the persons involved are Venezuelan and again you are degrading my quiet and peaceful village by saying about rum instead of water
it is rather obscure that you make such immature judge on one of Guyana’s paradise. I admonish your to consider the ppl of Bartica before you give your invalid and unreliable opinions. We donot condone drinking and driving! Thus, such generalizations are unfounded!!! We are a very hospitable ppl and we do give lots of food as well… may you should try it.
Drinking and Driving do not go together!!!!!!!!!!!
Sincere condolences to his relatives and friends.
I do hope that the other drivers can take this as an example. The roads on Bartica are very very narrow and there are a lot of vehicles. Combine that with drunk driving and this is what you get.
Well people still na a learn that gasaline and rum is not friend and remember to the rest of driver speed trills and kills my warmest sympathy to the mother who has to feel that pain in her heart for losin her son.
drinking and driving a common occurance in guyana U see this a lot on the roads and the police does nothing about it i travelled the road and see lots of drunks driving buses and private cars even the drunks leaving the bars at nights especiallly the ones in sherrif sstreet i seen an incident where a driver a well known so called big shot collided with a parked vehicle and the police were scared to arrest this man cause hes had body guards with guns drawn when the police arrived and they cursed and abused the police this man was never charged there are lots of cases like this happening on the roads of guyana and nothing is done about it
My condolences to Ms.Rufino. I taught both these boys in school. But this will be a lesson for the youths of Bartica. Drinking and driving dont ever go together.
