ROGUE TAXI

A taxi driver has gone on record trying to right his wrongs and accusing the Belize City Council of interfering with his livelihood.  59-year-old Gerald Lewis and two of his sons have taken up a portion of North Front Street near Spoonaz Café as their taxi base.

A taxi driver has gone on record trying to right his wrongs and accusing the Belize City Council of interfering with his livelihood.  59-year-old Gerald Lewis and two of his sons have taken up a portion of North Front Street near Spoonaz Café as their taxi base.  According to Lewis he has been in that location for ten years and is now up in arms as the Traffic Department seeks to remove him.  Lewis went on record to explain his plight.

Gerald Lewis, Taxi Driver: “Yes ma’am, they said we can’t park here because they don’t want us to survive and they said if we park here today they will come tow the vehicle and they did come, they did come and wanted to tow the vehicle. The men came and brought a letter to us concerning if you don’t move your vehicle, if the vehicle is parked here they will tow the vehicle. I told them straight  I told them ‘Look here my brother I have two of my kids right here, the kids are working honestly for their living, they are not stealing, they aren’t robbing anyone, a lot of crime is happening in Belize here, a lot of killing. The policemen look like when black people go down they like that, they don’t go and look for the thief and the murderers they want to come and hassle my two kids here that are working honestly for a living. You know they are trying to stop us from surviving I think that is totally wrong. We want at least two parking spots out here to work for our little money honest living. He came and told us we can’t park here because if we park here they’re gonna big tow truck to tow the vehicle , I said boy it’s gonna be a problem because we want to survive.”

Love News reached out to Law enforcement Officer from the Traffic Department, Kevan Jenkins, who explained to us that the area is not designated for taxis and that if he wants an area, he simply needs to apply for it at the Belize City Council. The removal by the council, however, is not the only fight that Lewis is dealing with.  We spoke with various business owners in the area who say that Lewis relieves himself by their shops and threatens them with violence when he is told about it.
