Saint Lucia authorities asked to crack down on heavily tinted vehicles to fight crime (letter)

Letter to the Editor

 Share This On:

Dear Editor: I would like to extend my concern as a citizen regarding the increase in crime on our beautiful paradise island.

Can you please ask that the prime minister (PM) and opposition leader, please come together to help cut down on the killings.

I personally think one of our major problems ia vehicles driving around with those very dark tinted windows and no one can identify those people. It could be the most wanted man.

Please PM, can you kindly look into this as a matter of urgency? Please make this as illegal like England and America. Thanks and hoping you can please take my concern on board. Many thanks.

— Concerned citizen

  1. I have an issue, dark tints should no be a problem, the number plates should identify the owner of the vehicle, that’s more important, the government should have technology in place for the police to look up the number and get all info about the vehicle.

  2. Great observation. These vehicles (including MPs, police etc) should not be so heavily tinted.

  3. I personally think that your personal thought should remain personal. Jack Ass Zaphere moon! You want the ability to see your trifling spouse. In this insane heat try to raise the topic of tint. Just try. FOOL! With all the issues we really have on this rock you personally brought tint to the table.

  4. Whoever wrote this letter wants to see when their man or woman passes on a tinted vehicle. That can never stop crime. Right now fellas walking to spray shots or on bikes leave me with my triple tinted windows. My jabals need to b hidden

  5. U want to start some thing, ask the authorities with personal vehicles that are heavy tinted to do so first. Lead by example.

  6. Hot sun and y’all asking to remove tint... masia re evaluate yourselves!!! I think crime could be better solved without ppl suffering.

  7. How am I suppose to hide man dem wife's and girlfriends without my double Limo tint?
    (1) I think number plate recognition would be a better idea to identify badman dem.
    (2) Anyone that's known to be involved in criminal activities are not allowed to have tinted windows.

  8. I would agree if England and America had no crime

  9. The fact is, dark shade no longer represents cooler. Newer technology window film allows 80-90% light in with the same heat reduction as the old "limo tint." I like the idea of police (and myself for that matter) knowing who is in the car next to me. I think it's a reasonable and good idea.

  10. So Because my car tinted for the blazing hot sun we experiencing these days, means i'm a wanted man?

    That is very stupid to post seeing we experience near 40 Degree Weather on a daily.

    Not Everyone should suffer for a stupid criminal. We should all walk around with copies of our ID's around out necks then.

    Ridiculous.

  11. like everything have 2 sides,
    positive on tinted windows = it protects you from the sun and keeps the care cooler
    negative = identification of passengers are difficult or not possible

    I personally are in favour of it because of blocking the hot sun.

  12. The issue will be that the most tinted vehicles are actually Ministers vehicles with no SLG plate, like the one Ray Charles used to drive around and in the I think now the PM and those police officers private vehicles. I know some of them and their tint is sooo dark. Great idea though.

  13. great advice, but don't expect that to happen in this God forsaken country of ours. The only initiative the authorities know to fight crime is put cops to patrol, whilst they patrolling criminals passing them in heavily tinted vehicles and the cops cant see shit. Saint Lucia is Joke.

    I Proclaim on the rooftop that the “King is coming”! I announce to the ends of the earth, that the “King is coming”. And that the days of Noah are here. “Prepare ye the way of the Lord and make straight his paths.” Tell all the world that I am coming back soon. “I am coming for those who have laid their burdens down”. In the name of Jesus. Amen.
    The father says: I will renew the most damaged relationships for my glory and honor. A new level of purity is coming over the land. My people will learn to love with the heart and mind of Christ. Put down the weapons you have against one another. Choose to see people as the new creation I am molding them into. No one has arrived yet. Allow me to continue the good work that I am doing through you for your days will be bright. When you begin to see yourself how I see you, then you truly will be unstoppable. The enemy wants to cover your eyes to the truth and remind you of the past over and over. When you lend an ear to those illegitimate voices, you will stumble and fall.
    Speak life into all matters and you will watch what was not become so, in my name alone. I have called you to live and live a life of full abundance. It is true that you cannot do much about the past but if I am your Lord, the outcome and blessing will still lie in your future. Man’s eyes focus on the current moment, but I see the past, present and future all at the same time. I am writing your days even as you are experiencing them as in your now. I want you to keep moving forward and do not give into the temptation to grow negative emotions into your heart and mind. Let me deal with that issue instead of letting it consume all your energy and resources. Keep love in your heart and the enemy will loose at every turn you make.
    It will not matter what trap he sets because you will know that rising above the adversity will allow the victory. I am your score keeper and a hand of justice, choose not to act out of the wounds yet to be healed. I will heal every wound no matter how deep or costly. Allow me the access to even the most painful memories. I created you with so many talents, gifts and desires, not one will I deny you. For a life that flourishes around those special attributes is my blessing to you. Explore deeper into yourself, just like a priceless treasure chest lying at the bottom of the ocean, there is so much to discover. Not everything is on the surface so easily seen, many are buried deep inside waiting for you to unlock. Come closer so I will give you the keys to explore the more that I have for you this very day. You have tried repeatedly to open new doors with old keys. Today see the new keys raining down all along your path.
    * These are the words of –Yahuwah and his son Yahushua Mashiach.
    God the Father, the Great King wants his name to be promoted in the four corners of the earth. Repent now; get baptized and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, those of you who are in the valley of decision. Do not procrastinate any longer but go ahead and choose God, for when the door and the books are closed no one will be able to enter in. God is sending warnings after warnings. We are in the End Times and he does not want ANYONE to Perish. Time is running out, get saved now while you have time. He is the only way to salvation. Amend your ways and you will be allowed to remain in the land. Let those who have ears to hear and those who have eyes to see. Repent now! Remain strong, be bold, courageous and steadfast in your faith.
    Credit to Brother Shomrim Ben Yahshua for my reference, may God bless you my, brother.
