By BBN Staff: There have been several photos showing bus stations and buses overcrowded with people and no social distancing.
Commissioner of Police, Chester Williams has indicated that police will crack down on public transportation and hold the drivers and conductors accountable for what occurs on the vehicles that they control.
Williams also appealed to the public to avoid risking their lives by being a standee on the buses.
“You’re going to have two risks then, one is the risk of catching COVID and two, if that bus were to get involved in an accident, the fact that you’re standing you will not have anything that you can grab on to prevent you from flying through that windshield. You put yourself at great danger by being a standee in a bus, so if the bus is full then for Christ sake wait for another one,” Williams said.
He also advised bus operators to send in extra buses in the busy hours of the day since it is a violation of the law to have packed buses.
