Officers arrested her after stopping a minibus that ignored a sign prohibiting passage by such vehicles through the back of the gas station at Bois D’Orange.

The driver, heading from Gros Islet to Castries with a passenger load, was trying to avoid heavy vehicle traffic.

The police instructed everyone to disembark amid protests from the passengers and onlookers.

  1. Wonderful, they will have respect for one another. Now the police, that does mean all you have to provoke the masses unnecessarily. Let us hear how the magistrate will deal with this case.

  2. Notice it’s always a woman quarrelling and making any situation worse. Listen to the voices you hear in these viral videos. Always some low class mess getting on like a savage animal

  3. Ok so then what did the driver get for passing a place he was not supposed to pass in the first place? If I was this lady I would take the driver to court cause its because of his negligence in breaking the traffic law and passing in that direction where he was not supposed to be in the first place is what got her in this mess.
