Head of the Police Traffic Department in Jamaica, Senior Superintendent, Elan Powell is again calling for an improved traffic ticketing system.

SSP Powell says too many traffic offenders escape prosecution because the law does not permit the issuing of tickets for certain offences. He is requesting that the law be amended.

SSP Powell also says vehicles that have been modified are not safe to be driven. He says such vehicles are often involved in a number of motor vehicle crashes.

Three hundred and nineteen persons have died in motor vehicle crashes since the start of the year.
