Sadly, another black eye the island does not needs. All thanks to incompetent government to begin with.

Can't see why the police don't just issue tickets or tow them away since it's illegal to park there. If it was a rental car, lord help them.

While I agree that they should just issue tickets and tow, if Emmanuel hadn't ordered them removed to begin with, there would be no issue...

My retired school teacher wife always says stupid kids just grow up to be stupid adults. Some just can't outgrow it.

Not only ticket and tow them, the government should be suspending their taxi license commensurate with the number of violations that they have accumulated.


Be careful of the toes you step on today for they may be connected to the foot of the person's a$s you have to kiss tomorrow.

I seriously doubt it is Taxi plates that are the prime suspects doing the violation.

The original article that was linked to, by Carol, states specifically that it is Taxi Drivers that are parking on sidewalks and in the "no parking zones". I have to take the article from the Daily Herald at face value. But i would agree that it is not only Taxi Drivers.

Probably also some of the shop owners that don't care.
