I have witnessed near misses all over the place, from boats barely missing swimmers around the coastal ferry dock, to pedestrians (myself included) having to physically leap out of the way of speeding taxis while on the sidewalk around Tropic Air (seems to be especially bad at night), cyclists rounding curves on the wrong side of the road, unsecured children and even infants bouncing around on the back of golf carts (this really freaks me out!).

IMO, those "Dumb American" tourists have an excuse - they are on vacation. We (all stakeholders) need to do a better job of educating / protecting them from harm...

How to educate / protect those other than tourists? Can you fix stupid?
