JA Transport Authority warns taxi drivers to stop putting children in trunks

Jamaica’s Transport Authority has warned rural taxi drivers to stop putting children in the trunk of their motor cars.

The practice is an age-old problem in communities in a bid to increase their earnings on each trip.

According to Managing Director at the Authority, Donald Foster, any operator found to be violating the rights of passengers, to a safe and comfortable ride by overloading the vehicles will be prosecuted under section 28 (3) of the Road Traffic Regulations.
