The bus stop on Cork Street, Roseau as of Friday April 9th, 2011 has been removed by the Dominica Police Force, Traffic Department as a safety caution for pedestrians, and passengers as construction is taking place in close proximity of the bus stop.On Friday morning several bus operators were alarmed when they sought to allow passengers to disembark from the bus and were informed by Police Officers that they could not do so.Dominica Vibes News spoke to several bus operators, who expressed annoyance at the removal of the bus stop because they were not formally informed and the Traffic Department did not meet with them to discuss the matter.ASP Ms. Alexander Traffic DepartmentIn an exclusive interview with ASP Alexander of the Traffic Department, Dominica Vibes News learnt that there were several public announcements on all three radio stations namely; Dominica Broadcasting Co-operation (DBS), Kairi Fm and Q95FM which she heard herself, and also visited the bus stop to inform bus operators of the change.The Traffic Department also attempted to hold a meeting with the bus operators but this was not successful.“In relation to the bus stop at Cork Street that was removed, so Cork Street is no longer a bus stop it is no longer an area where buses can stop to put down or pick up passengers. That move became necessary in light of construction works that is taking place at the location, and we thought it necessary to remove the bus stop from that location in light of the hazard and the risk that would be placed not only for the buses but in particular for the pedestrians and passengers who would be in the area awaiting transportation.”This removal of the bus stop was also done to avoid some of the congestion that would result particularly during rush hours; early in the morning when persons are trying to get to work and during lunch time when students are coming from school.The displaced buses have the option to use the bus stand between the E. C. Loblack bridge and the West bridge and allow passengers to embark and disembark as it is normally empty and free of congestion during rush hours. “For the time being we are allowing the final stop if somebody must get into the commercial part of the City to be the bus stop on Independence Street (Lagoon). We are monitoring how that is going to because we recognize that it seems to be creating a problem and if the bus drivers are unwilling to regulate themselves, it may also become necessary to consider what are the other options in relation to that stop.”Dominicans are becoming considerably more motorized and not willing to park on the outskirts of the Roeau and walk to avoid the unncessary congestion. However, this may very well become reality if the bus operators do not show more due care an attention driving through the city.The Traffic Department may have to consider implementing one bus stand between the E. C. Loblack Bridge and the West Bridge where passengers would embark and disembark as opposed to several smaller bus stops within the city.ASP Alexander also confirmed that the removal of the bus stop on Cork Street was the decision of the Traffic Department and not of the Cabinet ministers nor the government, “the Traffic Act makes provision for the Comissioner of Police who is the licencing authority to make decisions regarding the traffic signs in the city, to make decisions regarding road signs generally and decisions like these are normally taken by the Commisioner of Police as the Traffic Commissioner.”Ms. Alexander reieterated that the decision was made by the Traffic Department, based on the safety risk for pedestrians and passengers as well as to assist other motor operators who commute through that area on a daily basis and often subjected to an unnecssary long line of traffic congestion.In the past the Traffic Department has made allowance for property owners who are constructing or renovating by allowing them part of the side walk for fencing.This was recently done on Cork Street to facilitate the construction of the new Perkies Pizza location and the same courtesy is being extended the the property owners on Cork Street.The difference is that the bus stop on Cork Street is right in front of the property where construction is taking place and so the removal became a necessity.Dominica Vibes News

Dillon Paulson won’t have to drive far to meet with the team that drafted him. The USC first baseman was selected by the Dodgers in the 13th round of Major League Baseball’s amateur draft on Wednesday.Meeting the Dodgers’ right fielder might be awkward. In October 2013, Paulson used a gay slur in reference to Yasiel Puig on his Twitter account. It was the only instance of that slur, or any derogatory slur against Puig, on Paulson’s Twitter timeline.Image of deleted tweet from Dillon Paulson.“There’s nothing that excuses that,” Paulson said in a telephone interview. “It’s not correct. It’s embarrassing. Being young and dumb is not an excuse. I’m embarrassed. I wish it never went out. I was young, thinking it was funny. It’s obviously not funny. It’s not the way I want to represent myself. Not how I want to carry myself.”After his name was called in the draft, Paulson said he was advised by the Dodgers to go through his old tweets and delete anything that could be construed as offensive. By Wednesday afternoon, the tweet had been deleted. Paulson isn’t the first draft pick this year to get in trouble for an old tweet. On Tuesday, Colorado Rockies draft pick Ryan Rolison deleted a controversial tweet about President Barack Obama from 2012: “Well we have one hope left … if someone shoots him during his speech.”Rolison told The Athletic in a telephone interview that “it was a stupid tweet. It was immature of me. I had no idea what I was talking about.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “I found that and said, yeah, I don’t want that to be there,” Paulson said.A Dodgers spokesperson said the social media accounts of prospective draft picks are monitored as a general policy.
