This is a cry for help from all the people of the Cayman Islands and the soon to be elected members of government to keep West Bay Road open.
Within the past few days I have witnessed several near accidents due to the changing of lanes, speeding, over taking and just careless driving.
It is just a matter of time before a fatal accident occurs.
This can be prevented by keeping West Bay Road open so the people who so choose can have a safer way to travel to and from West Bay. Give us a choice, an alternative, don’t force us to use the Dart Speedway. I do not want to lose my life or see any of my family or friends killed because of a hotel or the greed of the developer. Voters, ask your candidate if they are willing to fight to keep West Bay Road open; therefore, helping to save the lives of their constituents and giving them a safer way home.
I have lived on Grand Cayman for 32 years and have seen all the hotels open, except the old Holiday Inn where I was manager for several years and as a matter of fact I opened several of the others as the first general manager and not one asked to have a road changed or closed just to suit them.
As a matter of fact, the Hyatt was told that when the by-pass was extended it would pass through their tennis courts, which it did. They lost some of their property instead of gaining.
There is no precedent for this.
The new speedway is an accident waiting to happen. Give us the choice to live or die!
Remember, the life you help save could be your own.
