Return Of Cruise Ships Means Motorists Can’t Park At Taxi Stands Any More: VIPD

CHARLOTTE AMALIE — Commander of the Virgin Islands Police Department Traffic Investigation Bureau Lieutenant Lionel Bess — St. Thomas/St. John District — is advising the motoring public that non-taxi parking will be discontinued at designated taxi stands and enforcement restrictions strictly enforced, as cruise ship arrivals have now resumed.

“The Department had recently been lenient with the enforcement of non-taxi parking in designated taxi stands, however, we are now resuming strict enforcement so taxi drivers can drop off and pick up passengers without disrupting traffic flow,” Lieutenant Bess said.

For more information, please contact the VIPD Traffic Investigation Bureau at (340) 774-2211.

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
