KINGSTON, Jamaica:

Residents of Font Hill in St Thomas this morning took to the streets of their community in protest of the poor road condition.




Reports reaching The Gleaner/Power 106 News Centre are that the residents decided to protest because of the inaction of the authorities after a car went into a gully in the community a week ago while trying to avoid a pothole.



The police have since cleared the roadway and addressed the residents who claim that the road has been in a poor condition for more than 30 years.



The residents are now appealing to Member of Parliament for the area James Robertson to make further representation on their behalf.



They contend that if nothing is done soon they will intensify their protest action.
