Court rakes in $9 000 in three hours

Social Share

More than $9 000 have been deposited into Government’s coffers by law-breaking drivers.

The amount was made in less than three hours as the Bridgetown Traffic Court held its call day yesterday.

And Junior Jordan, a consultant driver/trainer and past president of the Barbados Road safety Association has praised the crackdown by police and the court, saying there are too many delinquent drivers who have the potential to cause major accidents on the road by their actions.

Yesterday Magistrate Graveney Bannister, who presided in the court, imposed forthwith fines from $400 to $750 on scores of people, ranging from route taxi and minibus drivers to the chief executive officer of a major local business. By the end of the court’s business, $9 400 in forthwith fines had been collected. (HLE)
