Scores of motorists turned up at the St. Ann Parish Court this morning (January 30), as they rushed to pay outstanding traffic tickets before the New Road Traffic Act comes into effect, on Wednesday.
Motorists have been given up until January 31 to pay all outstanding traffic tickets or face the penalties under the New Road Traffic Act.
One motorist at the St. Ann Traffic Court told Irie FM News that up to three hours after turning up at court he still had not gotten through.
