Traffic head talks tough despite threats

Posted: April 5, 2012

Head of the Police Traffic Department, Senior Superintendent Radcliffe Lewis, is standing firm in his duties to rid sections of the corporate area of non-compliant operators, despite reported threats against his life.

This comes a day after the police intensified their efforts to clampdown on taxis plying the Half-Way-Tree to Papine Route in St Andrew after commuters complained of a hike in fares.

SSP Lewis says he wasn't threatened directly saying he only learnt from colleagues that the media was reporting a threat on his life.

He says he will not be daunted by any threat.

However, the senior cop says he will defend himself if he is attacked adding that their operation will continue.

Over 50 vehicles have been seized since the operations were stepped up yesterday.

Critics said it was impossible to sustain a 24-hour Reggae music station. In fact, so strong was the impact, it proved that this format was something the Jamaican public yearned for. The 'little station that could' got all media houses in Jamaica to stand up and take note.
