The behaviour reported of schoolchildren in the Half-Way-Tree Transport Centre is unacceptable and immediate action to remedy same must be done.
The suggestion to charge adult fares only after 5:00 pm, by itself, will be costly to parents who have children participating in after-school activities that may extend beyond the stated time period. However, if that time period can be couple with a note from the school authority to children involved in after-school activities resulting in JUTC honouring the reduced fare to those students that can be a start to help curtail the improper conduct at the Transport Centre.
Addtionally, I would incorporate these elements with the above suggestion(s): 1. First misconduct offence will result in a warning.
2. Second offence will be community service and fine of $1,000.00.
3. Third offence will be school suspension, fine and community service.
Again, these codes of conduct may help in alleviating improper behaviour at the transport centre and other areas where schoolchildren loiter.
Remember, we were once kids, and the law must be dynamic and not static to create effectiveness.
