TODSS says lack of ability to pay traffic tickets at tax offices is major concern following extension granted by Government
The Transport Operators Development Sustainable Services (TODSS) says while members welcome the Government’s decision to allow them time to pay outstanding traffic tickets, concern is being raised about the inability to pay the fines at tax offices.
A release from the Office of the Prime Minister on Tuesday (December 13), indicated that motorists with outstanding tickets issued after February 1, 2018, will have up to February 1, 2023, to pay the fines.
Following that release, the Jamaica Tax Office posted on its Twitter page that motorists who will be benefiting from this service will not be able to do so at its offices.
In response, Mr Newman says while they appreciate the time being given to pay, going before a judge is a major concern.
He also repeated his call for the Government to provide more time for them to pay their outstanding tickets.
