Zr drivers plead guilty and fined

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.

Both fines were paid.

    While I consider a ZR driver a nuisance on the road a fine of $800 & $750 is pointless.

    Suspension from driving a public service vehicle (PSV) for 12 months would be impactful.

    To my mind, putting a fine is going to encourage the driver to hustle more & run afoul of the law.

    Pointless! But I must admit most of our magistrate / judges lack imagination for I am sure it can’t be an easy job.
