Bus driver awaiting sentencing

COURT TODAY BLOCKJustice Jacqueline Cornelius wants to know some more about the driving record of former PSV operator Clare Ramon Nevero Hinds before she sentences him. Hinds, of Perfection Road, Bush Hall, St Michael returned before her today in the High Court No. 5 for his pre-sentencing report. However, the judge was still not satisfied that she knew enough about the suspended Transport Board bus driver to determine his fate. Hinds pleaded guilty weeks ago before the same court, to driving dangerously on March 3, 2012. Hinds was driving the Transport Board bus which hit Edna Sandiford at the Princess Alice Bus Terminal on that fateful day. The woman died later at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. Noting his 63 previous traffic violations as a public service vehicle driver, the judge sought information of Hinds’ driving record while being a driver with the state-owned agency from 1999 until 2013. She therefore asked the probation officer to investigate and return to court on December 9. Hinds will remain on bail until then. The court heard today that the incident has severely affected Hinds, who is now experiencing insomnia and hypertension. The probation officer added that he had expressed “deep regret” over the death of the elderly woman and was still “emotionally traumatised”.

    Simple question did Transport Board know of his previous driving record before hiring him and is all of his bad driving history kept on file as it should be?

    That why I keeping my self to my self, it is’nt who u know it is who know u, that lady that died you think her family won’t like to see her alive but they can’t, just because of a few parasites we have in the system, we does see them on TV saying what the law said and turn around and break it.

    A PSV driver with previous driving convictions does not mean he use to break traffic lights,go thruogh no entries nor get into accidents on a regular basis,most of the time 99% of these convictions are for picking up or setting down passengers other than a bus stop or not displaying your badge,something that happens everyday and i am not saying that it is right.So don’t make it look as though the man is some reckless driver.
