Three PPV operators arrested for hundreds of unpaid traffic tickets

Three more public passenger operators with hundreds of unpaid traffic tickets have been arrested as the police step up their crackdown on rogue drivers.
 
They were arrested following operations by the Public Safety and Traffic Enforcement Branch in Kingston and St. Catherine.
 
One of the men, 40 year old bus driver Roger Bartley, of Eltham View, Spanish Town had 1,028 outstanding tickets.
 
Taxi operator Andrew Bailey, 39, of Tavern Crescent, Kingston 6, had 272 outstanding tickets.
 
Another taxi operator, 36 year old Duwayne Barrett, of Stony Hill, St. Andrew had 189 unpaid tickets.
 
A statement from the police Friday afternoon said checks revealed warrants had been issued for their arrest in relation to the tickets. 
 
The men are to appear before the Kingston and St. Andrew Traffic Court on Monday.
 
On Tuesday, two public passenger vehicle operators were fined more than $400,000 jointly for racking up in excess of 1,000 unpaid traffic tickets.
 
One of them remains behind bars until later this month to stand trial for offences dating back to 2015.
