I know the title sounds grim, but good information for the newcomers to the island about roads that have many accidents or lots of dangerous drivers will help them be more aware of the situation and avoid if need to or drive at other times.
I would like to start this topic off with a general rule about driving on most if not all roads is what I call the 'Mauritian 30 Seconds Rule of Driving'. This rule seems to apply only to many Mauritian drivers. Basically day or night if a driver who follows the rule is behind you watch your rear mirror ever few seconds until around 30 seconds what you will find is that the person behind will start to try and overtake you and if they do and it is not really possible then they will squeeze into the gap between you and the next car or make the cars coming in the opposite direction slow down. Either way be prepared to have this done or suddenly there is a car coming straight at you while trying to overtake.
Now for the first report on a dangerous stretch of road.
PALMA ROUNDABOUT TO BEUX SONGES
This stretch of road where there is a sharp band near where the fruit stall usually is around Litchee season has barriers which seem to be bent and buckled nearly every week and subsequently repaired in the same timescale. I have seen 4 accidents there in the past two months and cars being towed away or off the road if I have not passed the accident. I have had two times cars overtaking and causing me to apply brakes because they overtake two close to the corner and then something comes round the corner.
