THE PEOPLE LIVING and driving through the Shop Hill to Duke’s area and beyond are crying out for relief.

There are blind corners, narrow roads, a sunken bridge, bush hindering eyesight and a lack of sidewalks and people are frustrated with this true danger zone where many people have lost their lives.

One life lost in particular, 17-year-old Anyica Yearwood who was killed in 2010, is still fresh in many people’s minds. She was dragged by a vehicle which had struck her while she was waiting at a bus stop along Shop Hill.

Armintha Headley lives near the area where that tragedy occurred. She said it was still dangerous there. (CA)
