Head of the Police Traffic Department, Senior Superintendent Radcliffe Lewis is urging motorists seeking to get information on how and when to pay outstanding traffic fines to be patient.
Since the end of the Traffic Ticket Amnesty on December 31, hundreds of motorists have been turning up at Traffic Headquarters on Elleston Road in Kingston, to verify whether they have outstanding tickets.
However, motorists who spoke to our newscentre this morning said they are not pleased with how the police are handling the situation and the pace at which the police checks are being done.
In response, SSP Lewis urged those seeking verification to be patient, noting that it takes time for the police to get the necessary data.
In the meantime, the traffic cop said recent talks with the clerk of the traffic court have resulted in the implementation of a system that will ensure that motorists are provided with the information they seek in a timelier manner.
He noted that a majority of the persons who turn up at his office are those who have traffic tickets outstanding up to September 2010.
SSP Lewis said traffic personnel are working to assist those persons to clear up the outstanding fines.
He is reminding drivers with outstanding tickets that they have until January 21 to get regularised.
SSP Lewis is warning that the police will move to prosecute delinquents after that date.
