RJR News / There has been a huge turnout of motorists at tax offices across Jamaica to take advantage of the final day of the three-month traffic ticket amnesty.
Long lines could be seen at various tax offices from as early as seven o’clock Tuesday morning.
Those in line at the Cross Roads, St. Andrew and Spanish Town tax offices complained that the amnesty was ill-timed as it coincided with back to school preparations.
Pearnel Barnett, a taxi driver, spoke to RJR News , having just paid $15,000 in outstanding traffic tickets at the Spanish Town office. He is calling for an extension of the amnesty, explaining that he is required to pay $30,000 more.
