Several of our citizens have been so touched by Jasmine Lowe’s story that they have already started petitions, Facebook Groups and are calling for new legislation. One such person is Mary K. Carridi. She herself has faced very tragic circumstances when her mother was brutally murdered. Here is her proposal, or one of them. This lady has many, many good ideas:
Mary K Cariddi idea…..TAXI
We need new laws governing Taxi`s. 1. All taxis should have a Number issued and be displayed on the front, back, and both sides of the taxi. 2. All taxi drivers should have a back ground check/police report, and should be a Belizean national. 3. Each district should have a set color and all taxis working in the district should be painted that color. 4. Each taxis should pay for an individual trade license in there town and a registry of the taxi number and who is licensed to drive that taxi should be sent out to all police and traffic departments. 5. a 4in x 8in photo ID should be displayed on the dashboard in clear view. 6. All Taxis should have Plexiglas partition between front and back seat. 7. All taxis should be inspected every six months.
This is the time y’all.
