Ticket us if we break the law!

That was the call of president of the Alliance Owners of Public Transport (AOPT), Roy Raphael, as a means to rope in those public service vehicle (PSV) operators who contantly flout the island’s traffic laws and contribute to the bad reputation of the sector.

And he also wants commuters to play their part to ensure the PSVs adhere to all the rules and regulations.

Raphael told the DAILY NATION in a interview there was a need to revamp existing legislation, adding the operators would be trying to meet with acting Commissioner of Police Tyrone Griffith and his senior officers to discuss a range of issues.

If that meeting materialises, high on the agenda will be ways of introducing a ticketing system where those running afoul of the law can have fines imposed against them instantly in certain instances.

Raphael is also hopeful that any discussion with the police hierarchy would also look at the overall operations of the PSVs and ways to ensure they comply with the law.
