    Nothing new,same things for yrs

  3. Why wait for a tragedy, why were you not doing your job Mr Mayor.

    • Remember that we have a reactive government. Not proactive.. they only act when something goes wrong. Never to prevent the possibility.

      Burke Road is a disaster ready to happen long long time ago. Vendors on the side walk. Why is Spanish Town so crazy. It seems like Spanish Town is the forgotten Town and place in Jamaica. SPANISH TOWN MATTERS

      @Rosemarie Lee OMG, can I tell you, right there is very bad. But it does not seem to just be a Spanish Town thing. It happens in all the towns in Jamaica. And it just keeps getting worst by the year 🙁. Too much lawlessness.

    In any civilized society the drivers of public transportations form a line and wait there tern.
    But in Jamaica there is too much eat a food mentality and cut troat mentality.
    Yes you can tell a country by how it’s public transportation operators behave.

      @Prodigy Sl Same so. Why do they have to pay extortion fee? They could all come together, and form a coliation, and stick out against this thievery, but they gladly pay. Because of one person giving in, it spread like wildfire, and now it’s too damn late. The Government, needs to make it illegal to extort people, and should get no less than 25 years. I’m angry, because that’s where I was born.

    • Form line 😂 😂 wa name so. U mean some line n some a shoot 😂

      @Natalie Mullings but the two gangs that is extorting the people of st catherine are Link to the two major political parties in Jamaica.
      Can you imagine gangsters have political links ?.
      So how on God earth can crimes be solved in Jamaica ?

      @Everton Simpson That’s so true, but don’t you think that the Government, should at least make it a crime to extort people. I have never heard anything about it. Yeah, it’s on both sides of the political parties. I think that it’s bigger than just the small sprat.

    If the drivers of these taxis and busses don’t master the art of framing line and wait there tern then they should not be driving public transportations..

    What about the monies collected by the gas station operator for himself and the extortionists?

    What is going on in spanish town in terms of the chaotic vehiclar traffic is happening in every major town throughout Jamaica. Jamaica is just simply an unruly country that has no values in law and order. In Other countries, downtowns are preserved with beauty, elegance and civil pride. In Jamaica it’s the opposite.

  12. Smh ! this is a long time situation in Spanish town and how long you guys are going to do it for? The law in Jamaica has no teeth to enforce it. SMDH .
