Taximen: Make provision for us

Social Share

BLOCKING OFF SECTIONS of Bridgetown and other thoroughfares during events is depriving taximen an opportunity to make money.

This is the view of independent taxi operator Kenneth Knight, who is calling for provision to be made for his colleagues when major activities are hosted, especially in the St Michael area.

Knight, who works from the Lower Broad Street taxi stand as well as the Bridgetown Port, told the DAILY NATION: “It happens all the time, and this year it just got me mad.” He was referring to traffic restrictions put in place for Bridgetown Market weekend.

He said there was enough time to put measures in place for next Crop Over Festival and wanted his plea to reach the ears of Minister of Culture, Sports and Youth, Stephen Lashley, the hierarchy of the National Cultural Foundation (NCF), the Royal Barbados Police Force and the hosts of the many fetes and events taking place. (LK)
