Charges against PSV drivers dismissed
A ZR operator and a minibus driver walked free from the District ‘A’ Traffic Court Tuesday after the traffic violation charges against them were dismissed.
Ranaldo Johnson of Welchman Hall, St Thomas pleaded not guilty to picking up and setting down passengers other than in a designated place, as well as failing to wear a seatbelt while his vehicle was in motion.
The owner of ZR355, Lyndon Nedd, testified that Johnson never drove his vehicle on that date.
In the second matter, Carlos King of Hope Road, St Lucy was reported for plying B89 for hire along Roebuck Street, St Michael on January 20 last year. However, after evidence showed that the road the driver had been travelling on was Baxters Road, Acting Magistrate Elwood Watts dismissed that case as well.
