JCF admits $6,000 traffic ticket issued ‘in error


The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) has admitted that a traffic ticket given to a woman in
St Elizabeth for failing to comply with the terms and conditions of a driver’s license during
the first 12 months was issued “in error”.


The ticket quoted a fine of $6,000 and was issued last week.


The woman, who was seemingly upset, shared a video on social media pointing out that she was
given the ticket for operating a vehicle with a “young” driver’s license without someone with
an “older” permit accompanying her.


“Mi nuh understand, mi want fi to know weh kinda rule dis yah?” the motorist said in the video.


The video has since garnered scores of comments from social media users, many also asking questions
about the JCF.


In a series of tweets on Monday afternoon, the JCF, taking note of the video, said after
investigating it determined that the ticket was issued in error and is to be withdrawn.


The JCF said it was taking steps to reach out to the woman to do so.


The police, in the meantime, took the opportunity to highlight that under Section 27 of the Road
Traffic Act of 2018, a motorist must comply with the terms and conditions during the first 12 months
of the grant of the license, namely:


The breath alcohol concentration of the holder shall not exceed 0.01 per cent or 10 micrograms of
alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath while driving;

The holder shall not drive more than 80kilometres per hour on any road; and


The holder shall not drive a motor vehicle carrying passengers or goods for reward.
