COURT TODAY BLOCKTwo ZR drivers, who pleaded guilty to picking up passengers other than at a designated stopping area, were fined today when they appeared in the District ‘A’ Traffic Court before Magistrate Graveney Bannister.

Roosevelt Ifill pleaded guilty to picking up passengers illegally on March 26, 2015, while driving on Tudor Street, the City. He was fined $800. He had to pay half of the amount forthwith, while the remaining $400 must be paid by January 22 or he will spend 80 days in prison.

The other driver, Anderson Smart, was fined $750 forthwith with an alternative of 75 days in prison after he pleaded guilty to picking up passengers along Milk Market Street, the City on April 1, 2015.

    Transport Board drivers are allowed to pick up other than a bus stop and are never reported by the police. Is it illegal or not to pick up passengers other than a bus stop. Or is it legal for the Tb and illegal for the private transport sector. We continue to turn a blind eye to the all the wrongs in this country until it is our turn to feel the fire. Remember this:

    First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Socialist.

    Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Jew.

    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
