Transport Authority prosecutes over 1,800 operators for various transportation breaches.
The Transport Authority has prosecuted over 1,800 operators for various transportation breaches.
This has resulted in approximately $7-million in court fines during Operation Streamline launched in September.
Managing Director of the Transport Authority, Ralston Smith, says the operation was to restore order in the Kingston Metropolitan Region and other parts of the country, through collaboration with the Jamaica Constabulary Force and Justices of the Peace.
The authority is intensifying Operation Streamline, which to date saw 437 operations undertaken in major townships, to increase the usage of terminal facilities, reduce congestion and improve order.
The aim of the operation is to increase order as it seeks to provide a safe, reliable and orderly transportation sector.
The authority is reminding operators to provide transportation service that conforms to their road licenses, as failure to do so may result in prosecution, seizure, suspension or revocation of their licenses.
