Cops Remove 'Heavy Sound System' From Public Passenger Bus in H.W.T

The Traffic Police yesterday removed a heavy-duty sound system from a passenger bus which was stopped on Half-Way-Tree Road in the early morning.

The Toyota Coaster bus with the name ‘Stainless’ emblazoned across the top of the front windshield was taken to Traffic Police headquarters at Elletson Road, where two amplifiers, a 1,000 watt and 1,500 watt and speakers were removed.

In October 2013, the police clamped down on public passenger vehicles with loud music systems and heavy tints, seizing more than 20 vehicles in the Corporate Area and rural Jamaica.

However, since then the campaign to remove sound systems from buses seemed to have fizzled.

In the featured photo, a police officer is seen prying open the inside panel of the bus to reveal the amplifiers, which are then placed on a seat after being removed.

On the outside of the bus, the driver stands silent looking on.

Opposition spokesperson Lisa Hanna came under fire this week from Vybz Kartel supporters after she had an interview on Nationwide @5, responding to a question from Cliff Hughes reguarding dancehall music and how it affects the youths of Jamaica.

She states that incarcerated artiste like Vybz kartel and his music should be banned from the Jamaican radio airwaves.
