Two mini-bus operators sitting on boom boxes that were removed from vehicles earlier this week.

A driver, escorted by a traffic cop, fetching the boom box which was taken from his mini-bus along Rupert Craig Highway.

TRAFFIC policemen on patrol in Georgetown and along East Bank and East Coast Demerara public roads, earlier this week, removed several pieces of noise making equipment, especially from mini-buses.

An official explained that the cops are now involved in a campaign against speeding and improper lighting on the roadways.

He said many musical `boom boxes', as they are called, were seized but, so far, only one driver has been charged with breaching his road service licence.

In some cases, first offenders may be warned in the ongoing drive, the spokesman said.
