The traffic in Kuta is really dangerous. My spouse has been involved in 6 traffic accidents since August 2013. She is a careful motorbike driver. Today one motorbike crashed into her when she stopped for people passing the streets. She hit her head in the pavement (if you can call it pavement.
As many people in Bali – tourists and locals – she doesn’t always tie her helmet under the chin. She got a concussion of the brain, but not a bad one. She was sent home to rest and should go to hospital if she started to feel dizzy. Dr Husman there said that 6 traffic accidents is the average for people driving motor Bike every year in Kuta-Legian-Denpasar.
It would be nice to see more bicycles at the streets in Kuta,
