It is not uncommon to see more than five students being ‘packed’ into vehicles designed to carry a maximum of 5 people in Jamaica.
A video showing what appears to be 15 students being loaded into a motor vehicle has spread like a wildfire on various social media platforms.
While it is pleasing to see students eager to go to school by any means possible, we still have to be concerned about the safety of the students.
According to a report from the Star,the almost three-minute long video, believed to have been recorded in Portland, shows the children loading into a Toyota Corolla station wagon.
At the beginning of the tape, the children gathered at the vehicle.
“Di likkle man dem go roun’,” one boy insisted, as the children bickered among themselves while deciphering where each should sit.
“Ay bwoy git up nuh bwoy! Rain a come yu nuh bwoy!” another boy shouted.
“Hello, fix good inna di car! Ello, unu put smaddy inna unu lap, make me get fi hold inna di cyar!” one schoolgirl shouted adamantly. The girl, who happened to be the last person to go inside, was seen wiggling her way in as she continued to make a fuss.
By the end of the video, each child had amazingly got inside the vehicle, as it made its way off.
Several viewers commented.
