‘Downright lawlessness’ regarding parking on Tortola

‘Downright lawlessness’ regarding parking on Tortola

Poor parking in Tortola continues to be a major issue plaguing the community, according to commentator Claude O. Skelton-Cline on the Thursday, February 25, 2021, edition of his Honestly Speaking radio show on ZBVI 780 AM.

“We’re getting a lot of complaints from neighbours in the community regarding this parking, we don’t park well in the town, we don’t park well in the local neighbourhoods.

“People are using the street as though it is their public place. What supposed to be a dual road turns into a single road,” he said in listing a number of road violations.

Calling for Virgin Islanders to be more respectful regarding the use of the roadways in the territory, Mr Skelton-Cline further urged building managers to provide designated parking.

Need for Designated parking


“There has to be properly designated parking, people cannot be using the streets for their private space,” he said.

The Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) was also singled out for failing to enforce traffic and road laws in the territory.

“The only time we see these police officers sometimes is when they are out there allowing the kids who are going to school to cross the road,” he said.

Calling the situation ‘downright lawless,” he said the violations are present in several communities across the territory and that there is a need for law enforcement to step in and handle the issue.
