  1. Good journalism like these type of investigative report you need to extend this journalism to all the aspect of jamaican society I.e govt, security, business, religion, family, culture and economic

  2. It has nothing to do with the curfew they always Race for passengers and drive like them mad.

  3. I would like to see a comparison of how many trips a speeder vs a no speeder gets. A training class in the US for FedEx drivers proves that speeding only saves about 2 minutes total per trip, plus you use more gas and need more maintenance on the vehicle.

      Exactly. There are also studies out of Japan that have shown that the people who cut in and out of traffic actually cause traffic to move slower.

      I feel it for my people because they don’t have many options for transportation to get to and from.

      I agree that enforcement is required. Too much slackness with the lives lost is not acceptable.

    • @Ahmahkyah Nunya overloaded vehicles is so dangerous. Even a “good” driver can’t manuever properly in certain situations when weight is shifting. Maybe instead of only tickets, education via videos could happen along with nightly news.
