ST ANDREW, Jamaica – In light of the violence against women and girls said to be perpetrated by men posing as taxi drivers, Prime Minister Andrew Holness, today issued a warning for all drivers of public passenger vehicles (PPV) to have their tints removed by next Monday.
Holness, who was addressing journalists at a conference held at Jamaica House, said that instructions of a zero tolerance approach were given to the police “with crimes that are taken within the sphere of public transportation”.
“In particular, registered taxis (PPV’s), must, by the thirteenth of this month, remove all tints from vehicles [as] it is already the law,” Holness said, adding that vehicles considered to be robots will be given special attention by the police and transport authority.
“The police have been directed to step up their operations in this regard,” Holness stated.

The prime minister today met with Cabinet with the few of approving recommendations by the National Security Council to tackle crime in Jamaica.
