Image Of The Week – A New ‘Push’ For Handcart Operators


This week’s image is related to the Tuesday Gleaner story entitled Handcart Operators Pushing With KSAC – More Than 300 Licensed And Registered Within The First Week.

In the photo, an operator with a registered handcart leaves the Coronation Market on Saturday. The Kingston and St Andrew Corporation (KSAC) recently introduced a registration system for handcarts, where the carts are coded by colour, letter and number.

Last week, more than 400 handcart drivers and owners turned up at St William Grant Park, in the heart of downtown Kingston, with their $3,000 in hand, to ensure that they were registered.
