Commuters spared another public transportation disruption as planned protest receives little support

Commuters across the island have been spared a disruption in the public transportation service, after another planned withdrawal of services by some public transport operators today did not happen.

The transport operators are seeking to pressure the government to provide them with an opportunity, to settle outstanding traffic tickets.

The strike organized by the one voice association of public transport investors and operators was expected to have support from operators across seven parishes.

However, when Irie Fm news spoke with the group’s director of communications, Oscar Finnikin he said it has been business as usual.

He believes this could be as a result of messages that have been circulating, stating that cabinet is expected to discuss their concerns today.

However, Mr Finnikin says he cannot confirm if those messages were from government officials.

He says if the government does not respond favourably, they will have to resort to night court.

The court administration division announced that the corporate area traffic court, will commence sittings of the night court and Saturday court starting on Monday December 5, to adjudicate on traffic violations.

Persons with outstanding traffic tickets have been urged to contact the corporate area traffic court.
