There is very poor lighting on this exact spot of the motorway. I saw this accident on my way to port louis last night. Was really bad... I wonder why the authorities take so much time to fix lights on the motor way. In a lot of regions of the island, specially on the main roads, there are spots where road lights are off. There are also places with no lighting at all... How to prevent accidents when the road infrastructure is so bad?

Driver | 11/29/12

A car is suppose to be on the highway, no matter what speed he is driving nor what he did to prevent the accident, and a pedestrian should be on the pavement or cross the road at designated places. Unfortunately its the pedestrian fault, he was at the wrong place at the wrong time. I personally don't find the driver at fault... My condolences to the pedestrian's family..

mam | 11/29/12

Firstly i feel sorry for the dead pesdestrian, but i feel very bad for the driver of the car too as the amount of shit he has to go through now because of a pedestrian 's fault and ignorance. i dont think we need crossing on freeway....Its a god damn freeway after all and there shouldnt b ppl walking or crossing it under no circumstances. even a car coming down at 60-80kmh, and brakes its very likely that we would be able to avoid an accident. I dont see why freeways should have various speeds and crossing and all this crap. ppl should be more aware that crossing a freeway is a dangerous thing....Now if drivers have to watch the ppl walking pass then whos gonna watch the other vehicles on the road. they say talking on mobiles in car is dangerous and u get fined for it. then isnt paying attention to ppl walking, crossing, dog crossing, ppl standing half in the middle of the road and chatting and all this shit even more dangerous. why dont these ppl get fined for it...COPS are not doing there job as they should, they are fining ppl for little things when there are more hazardous things happening around putting the lifes of others that risk, and they get away with that. Most probably where this guy died they gonna have another set on lights of the highway.....FFS...where in the world have u seen a god damn set of lights or crossing on a highway...ppl j-crossing highways should be fined heavily. highwayz should b fenced on both sides (but then again some a**hole is gonna come and steal the fence coz he needs it at home).
at la gare Q-bornes, everyday and the whole day, those individual buses park on the double yellow line outside the station near the lights, and pick up passengers, they even wait there, when the station is just next to them, and no1 says anything the cops dont even fine these buses...they block the traffic behind them, putting at risk the ppl trying to overtake them to get to the lights. CONCLUSION Mauritius is retarded and needs to be educated...ppl are soooo bloody careless and selfish. this guy died coz he was careless and ignorant, the driver has added so much shit to his life right coz because he was driving down at the wrong place and wrong time...the cops and governement always come up with easy, cheap, and silly solutions(like crossing or lights on highway or making a f***en highway speed limit 40kmh..LOL...wht kind of country is this and wht kind of government is ruling.

Until BB is not removed, fatal will occur every day, last week it was eight. We are spending billion on roads that will be barely used, but the motorway to the airport is completely dark though we tax payers paid for the lamp posts which are never on.

The highway is actually out of bounds to pedestrians. There are signs which are actually pretty clear all along the way.

Respect and peace to the man that passed away. However, to be honest, why do people even attempt to cross a motorway? and to make matters worse, crossing a motorway at night! I mean, if you do it, you are asking to be killed. We dont know if the driver if was driving faster than 110 km/h, even though legal, the laws of physics will result in death even at 70 km/h. We need to be more strict on road regulations, people cannot be so mentally retarded to cross the island's busiest motorway next to one of the busiest night spots! Its sad that people still think like this. Excessive speeding is inevitable because there will always be someone speeding at whatever time, but we can prevent people from crossing motorways by simply adding a barrier! Come on the Mauritian government, you guys are really pushing safety regulations for the last 20 years! put more lights, add barriers, more cameras, I dont pay my taxes for you guys to drink tea and drive expensive cars! I also do care for other people as well.

Sinceres condoleances la famille du piton! Mais combien de fois voyons nous des actes d'irresponsabilit commis par des pitons? Enfant marchant sur le cot chemin, pieton traversant a 2 mettre d'un passage pour pietons, pietons qui marchent sur le chemin alors que le trottoir est libre et innoccup! pietons qui traversent sans regarder!!! et la liste est encore longue!!!

Certainement,la voiture roulait vive allure mais un pieton qui traverse l'auto route????? Traverser une auto route?????? Mais c'est du purement mauricien sa! Dans la plupart des pays, c'est seulement les fous et les suicidaires qui prennent le risque de traverser une auto route!!! Le mauricien voit tjr l'option la plus facile! blamons le chauffeur! Mais l'education du pieton est un dossier prendre rapidemment en consideration Maurice!!! Meme tres rapidemment!

chauffeur | 11/29/12

bien triste ce kine arriver... mais pas kave dire si vraiment saufer la ki ena tort. premierement pas gagne droit traverser lor motorway, dezieme, pas conner si li ti p fer excess, 110 km/hr sufi pou touille ene dimoune, troisieme si victime la ine mete ene linze sombre pa pou trouve li meme si ena la limiere lor chemin ou pou trouve li kan pou trop tar. mo penser bizin aret met tt tor lor bane ce ki rouler, ena ki ena mari tor, bane c ki boire ou fer bane course lor chemin, mai pietons oci bizin ac responsable et fer atention zot propre la vie. ena traverse devant ou alors ki ena cross here dix metre pli loin. et kan zot fer ca si saufeur bizin evite li li kapav koz ene lot accident. tt dimoune bizin assume so responsabilite. si ca saufer la pas en tor li kan mem kav al dan prison... reflessi lor la.

observer | 11/29/12

The speed limit is 110km/hr right? would like to see anyone driving at that speed avoiding someone crossing the road only 50m away in front of their vehicles which would give the person only about 1.6 sec to brake. We should be realistic about who caused the accident and not just blame the driver. Otherwise, the government should reduce the speed limit to 50km/hr on highway. I believe those careless people crossing the highway should be sued for putting people life in danger. What would have happened if the driver tried to avoid the guy at 100 km/hr and ended up against a wall and die? then we would blame the pedestrian? If we do find the padestrian who would surely run away!

Norbert | 11/29/12

Li dplorable ce qui fine arriver mais mo envie ajouter qui ena ene tas problmes: Qui faire pena crossing un peu partout, ban flyovers, underpass etc? Qui faire ban trottoirs pas securis un peu: trop etroits, casss. Cause reasphaltage? Alle check dans ban la villes: chemin au moins 5 pouces la haut niveau trottoir! Ou gagne peur un vehicule derape ene cout. Cot ban urbanistes, architectes, ingenieurs de bonne foi? Pe range chemins couma dire nou encore lepoque anne 50-60! Quand mette emphase lor dbloque trafic, besoin prend en compte pitons aussi.

Pat | 11/29/12

The pedestrian chose his own fate when he decided to walk on a 110 km/h highway. Anyone who is stupid enough to walk on a highway deserves to die. Can someone also please explain to me why the driver was put into detention? Did he commit a crime?

le vraie | 11/29/12

Le penseur fou | 11/29/12

Sincres condolances la famille de la victime , Si la voiture allait de Rduit vers Bagatelle ,la vitesse il me semble est rduite a 60 km /hr en raison des travaux pour ajouter une voie au pont existant, si la voiture allait de bagatelle vers Rduit, on a un passage pour pieton au niveau du pont Martindale, mais est-ce quon a des paneaux pour l'indiquer, est-il claire le soir ,????, il y a t-il un passage pour pieton sous le pont de Colvil est-ce quon a des paneaux pour l'indiquer, est-il claire le soir ,????,Finlay Salesse le disait la radio il y a quelques jours, attendons la mort dun pieton sur l'autoroute pour que les services concernes reagisse au dangers que les gens de Montagne Ory subisse pour acceder au Bus-stop den face car il doivent traverser le dit autoroute.

Dear Scumbags, you must be a very sick guy!!How dare you share such a comment? Who are you to judge that poor guy who lost his life? Have you given a thought about his family reading YOUR FOOLISH COMMENT??? I wish that you never lose someone you love and cherish in a road accident!!!! Jay walking( if you know the meaning ok) exists everywhere and anytime!!! Drivers too have to bear that in mind!!! FYI PAT, the driver was locked because he fled the scene after the accident!!!

sunny | 11/30/12

it is always sad to see someone losing their lives the questions is what was he doing on a such busy and fast moving road .someone has written the need of more pedestrian crossing you do not have a pedestrian crossing on a highway any where in the world why in mauritius let me tell you no matter how many bridges or underpass the govt will build the mauritian people will never respect they will always cross the road that the ill mentality we have in mauritius just spend sometimes near caudan waterfront and watch how many people do not respect the highway code and if if you say something they wil swear at you bunch of low life.accident just don't happened it is created with madness and lack of respect to the society.why when anything happened in mauritius everyone jump to the govt do you want a nanny state learn good manners and help yourself rather than blaming somebody else and if you want to die or get killed stay arrogant and stupid.

Dsol un homme est mort et le conducteur est dans la melasse.
Bon mais il y a de tout sur nos soi-disant autoroutes ou routes: vlos, chiens errant, ptrolette fumigne, bus fou, camions fou, 3 personnes sur une mobylette, caisson de dholl pourri sur motocyclette, ciment, macadam, et mme un rickshaw comme en Inde. Cest vraiment le souk quoi. Les touristes et les trangers doivent se moquer de moi je vous le dis tout bas. Mais ici aurait-il- pas une importante source de revenue ici en terme damendes?

Malchance pu sa dimoune ki Dceder la. Moi mo dire besoin sensibilise bane chauffeur osi. D fois ena conducteurs p roule 70-80 lor fast lane. Fast lane ine fer pu roule 110km/hr.

Couma dire zis zot em ki ena kas pu acheter loto neuf.

Reader | 11/30/12

It wouldn't be a bad idea if people took the time to read properly before commenting and jumping to foolish conclusions...For instance, it has never been said that the driver has fled the scene of crime. People always need someone to blame and its easier to blame the driver. But he was at the end of the day driving on the fast lane. With the speed limit being 110 at this particular spot, unless a pedestrian can walk that fast, he had absolutely no reason to be there.Jay walking might very well exist everywhere but it isnt tolerated anywhere and is severely fined in civilised places! My sympathies to the family of the deceased and I long for the day where we will stop having pedestrians and cyclists putting their lives at risk on the motorway.

lolo | 11/30/12

Mo daccord avek ou bye.. ena prend sa fast lane la zotte in coler lor la mem et zotte roule 50kmhr.. lerla nou, nou bizin zig zager couma ene fou pou depasse zotte, bizin fou zotte si laman sa ban baya la

C'est le chauffeur qui rcolte tout le temps les torts et ce n'est pas juste. Qu'est-ce qu'un piton fait sur l'autoroute en plus cette heure l. Pour info certains qui vitesse sans savoir, mme 20km/h on peut blesser ou tuer quelqu'un, alors ce n'est pas qu'une question de vitesse. La route aux vhicules, les trottoirs aux pitons.

Pedestrians hav... | 12/28/12

Irrespective of the speed limit or absence of a pedestrian crossing, the pedestrian has ALWAYS gor priority on the highways, even though some of them appear to have a death wish. Drivers beware.
