  1. Racing youngsters.....Exactly what makes them think that throttling the handle of a motor bike makes them more manly?

    Another life taken away by a youngster desperately needing to show off how manly you are, when you can twist and turn at 80kmph within a run of a few hundred meters. Isn't there anything else that these youngsters can engage to vent off some of these hormonal energy?

    Strategically it may be better off to open up spars and discotheques and ban drag-racing in Male'

  2. Ali.

    There's nothing to do around here.

    Anything and everything fun from Black Opium to discos is being banned. Why, this place is an urban nightmare.

    Even if drag-racing is banned, they'll move on to even more harmful things.

  3. Ali, can you stretch your mind to the time you were a teenager? If you could, then you would perhaps understand how teenagers think of life.

    They will continue to do reckless things. Life will be lost too. All part of growing up in the most densely populated urban nightmare in the world, known as Male'.

  4. Open Disco areas, Bars n Spa could be a solution for such problems in a society where people believing in only this worldly life but not life after death my dear frens.......here so many people are there who wouldn't like to go n dance, drinking, enjoying with men & women or boys & girls mixed together and son....

    Why not the Traffic Police equip with proper skills and traffic regulations that could address to the current traffic scenarios in Male' and throughout the country?????? Just writing regulations that is impossible to apply is like a blind having 2 eyes my dear....i think what v see today is da same.....because, i have seen in an island country like ours doing well as Traffic Police and that no such accidents happen like this....there i have noticed that da Traffic Police is not only acting at the Accident scenes but they do stop those riding faster than the speed-limits displayed on the roads....But here can anyone see our Traffic Police is doing anything other than attending such dreadful accidents' scenes???? NO, our Police Officers are hanging around burning fuels only in the name of patrolling the islands...For Gods sake, please work for the country and the people my dear Police

  5. Is it "Female Motorbike accident victim" or "Female victim in Motorbike Accident" or "Motor Bike accident female victim"??

    Banning things won't have any effect - rules only work if there is an authority who can enforce it (MNDF/Police - I'm lolling at you.)
