Starting Monday, December 5, the Corporate Area Traffic Court will begin sittings at night to adjudicate on traffic violations.
Night Court will run from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m., Monday to Thursday, and Saturday Court will sit from 9:00 a.m., to 1:00 p.m.
Motorists with outstanding traffic tickets have been advised to contact the Corporate Area Traffic Court or the Court Administration Division for further details.
In an interview with Radio Jamaica News earlier this week, Chief Justice Bryan Sykes said night time and Saturday sittings of the traffic court was being contemplated in response to an increased number of people turning up to rid pay for outstanding tickets.
The increase was likely triggered by a warning that the regulations under the new Road Traffic Act could come into effect in short order.
Under the regulations, the Island Traffic Authority may suspend a person's drivers license for various traffic violations.
But, there has been no official word from the government on an effective date for the new regulations to take effect.
