KINGSTON, Jamaica --Angry drivers Thursday morning withdrew their service after plans to hold discussions with Government officials and other stakeholders about increase in their haulage rates have fallen apart.

"We will continue to protest for as long as it takes until we get some answers from the Government," Cleveland Guscott, union delegate representing the group said.

He was among group of drivers who parked their vehicles and gathered along Marcus Garvey Drive in Kingston.
