Holness says new Road Traffic Act to end informality in society

Prime Minister Andrew Holness says the new Road Traffic laws aim to end the system of informality that has been flourishing in the society for years.

He made the comment in relation to outcry by motorists especially taxi operators, about regulations under the new road traffic act.

The new Road Traffic Act came into effect on February 1, with the child restraint regulation one of the areas of greatest concern.

Government has proposed changes to the provision.

Speaking at an event on Tuesday, the prime minister weighed in on the recent series of events, noting that many Jamaicans feel they do not need to follow the road code, because they will eventually be given amnesty.

Mr Holness said this has to be addressed or the chaos will continue.




He said the idea that law and order is the enemy of survival must end.
