We present below some of the responses to the accident:
How do they pass through your blocks…
Overtaking is occasionally the showing off of the car’s performance, and is usually the showing of the driver’s impatience.
I thnk it was also important for you to mention in your report that most of the passengers in the other honda fit were school kids in uniforms.
Munokwana vanhu vangani muHondaFit (how many people can a Honda Fit carry?)
HUSTLER BOSS @NyceRyl:
Colonel Von Strohm @JohnMoyo:
you guys are complicit in all these accidents involving Honda Fits!
ZRP why do Honda Fit with 9 passengers pass Police roadblocks every day?
It’s a rural road out of Marondera. You can’t have roadblocks there. They’ll see 2 cars per day
