The Editor, Sir:
Impatience can cause you to become irritable, stressed, dissatisfied and upset. If you lose patience easily, you may be considered to have an anger-management problem. You may exhibit outbursts of anger and disgust. You may become sour towards everything in life.
This type of behaviour is quite noticeable in Montego Bay, especially among motorists.
There is an extreme danger associated with this kind of behaviour in that once an individual runs out of patience, he or she is literally out of possession of his or her normal thinking.
I became very conscious of this behaviour on my initial visit to St James Street, Montego Bay. I was walking along the sidewalk when I heard the constant loud blowing of horns by motorists.
Horns are for emergencies
Automobile horns are installed for emergency reasons and should only be used as required.
There is even worse danger, both in and on the outskirts of the city, where the rules of the road are totally ignored.
Something needs to be done about this situation in Montego Bay.
I am, etc.,
