PSV operators banned from road

COURT TODAY BLOCKThree Public Service Vehicle (PSVs) operators, all from St Peter, who appeared in the District ‘A’ Traffic Court on Monday had their licences cancelled and were disqualified from driving PSVs or taxis for a period of time.

Shawn Scantlebury, of Rose Hill, St. Peter pleaded guilty to allowing more than one passenger to sit beside him along Black Rock Main Road, St. Michael last October 29.

Magistrate Graveney Bannister disqualified Scantlebury for 12 months.

Bryan Alleyne of Black Bess admitted to two traffic offences when he appeared in the same court.

Those were that on October 1, 2014 he stopped other than at a bus stop to let off passengers and did not wear his badge in a manner which could be easily seen. He was disqualified for six months.

Meanwhile Carson Jordan of Gays also pleaded guilty to two offences. He allowed more than one passenger to sit beside him and picked up passengers other than at a bus stop.

He was disqualified from driving for 12 months for the offence and fined $450 forthwith for the second offence, with an alternative of 45 days in jail.

Alleyne has over 39 traffic convictions, Scantlebury 50 and Jordan over 242.

In Jordan’s case, Magistaret Bannister took note that even though many of them had been a long time ago, Jordan had seemingly taken a “hiatus” but has continued to offend. The Magistrate therefore felt that a deterrent sentence was necessary.
