National Security Minister, Robert Montague, says he’ll be asking the Parliament to extend the Traffic Ticket Amnesty.

The Amnesty which started on August 2 ended yesterday.

Minister Montague says his Ministry, the Tax Administration Jamaica, TAJ, and the Police have been receiving an overwhelming number of requests for an extension.
