The Kingston and St Andrew Corporation (KSAC) is to step up enforcement activities at several popular vending locations in downtown Kingston, to tackle low vendor registration in these areas.

According to Senator Brown Burke vendor registration rates at each of these locations is less than 50 per cent.
