The Jamaica Urban Transit Company JUTC says it will comply with the government’s regulations for the removal of tints from Public Passenger Vehicles PPV’s.
This follows a directive by Prime Minister Andrew Holness that all tints be removed from Public Passenger Vehicles effective Monday of this week, as one measure to stem crime against women and girls.
There have been reports, that some of the recent cases of abductions were allegedly committed by persons, posing as taxi operators.
The JUTC will be given 12 months in order to become compliant with the regulations as it falls in the category of those vehicles that has factory tints.
Factory tints are being regarded as those that are built into the glass of motor vehicles before being shipped to Jamaica.
Marketing and communications manager at JUTC, Reginald Allen, says while the removal of tints will take some time, the company is committed to the task.
