Senate passes bill to extend traffic ticket amnesty

Kavan Gayle
 
The Senate on Friday afternoon approved the Road Traffic (Temporary Ticket Amnesty) (Number 2) Bill.
 
It was passed without amendments.
 
This clears the way for the extension of the traffic ticket amnesty.
 
The amnesty will begin on Monday and continue until January 13.
 
Government Senator Kavan Gayle stated that while he is in support of the Bill, he would have preferred the speedy passage of the Road Traffic Act to curb indiscipline on Jamaica's roads.
 
"I call for that piece of legislation to be brought to the table...because you have in that proposed legislation some very critical, important clause(s) that would tighten the situation," he reasoned. 
 
He said he understands the need for the current amnesty, but at the same time, he does not believe it should be used as a continuous fix.
