Amnesty for my car, too

THE EDITOR: A spirit of caring, citizenship and global responsibility is growing in our nation. Kudos to Minister Stuart Young for regularising the status of asylum seekers, which should also encompass Caricom.

Health Minister Dr Terrence Deyalsingh and the Catholic School Board are also worthy of commendation.

To be fair, Works and Transportation Minister Rohan Sinanan should also be thrown into the mix.

I took possession of my car on January 18, and as of yesterday the certified copy of ownership had not been processed. As a consequence, the Transport Department sticker cannot be renewed. My vehicle is deserving of an amnesty.

I am due to travel soon and the sticker is about to expire. I know that the Transport Minister will recognise my plight and do the right thing.

It is unreasonable that someone from the Port of Spain division is unable to pick up the phone and direct Caroni to update the file. I feel like an unwelcome visitor at the Ministry of Works and Transport.

Myself and many other motorists deserve a refund of the $10 transfer fee and the $100 certified ownership cost for the lack of service.
