Barbados: Road Toll Gang

Barbados Free Press chastises the police for not clamping down on the Boscobel “Road Toll Gang”, which “stop[s] tourist hired cars by standing in front of them. They inform the drivers that the road is closed, instruct them to drive another way and then demand money for the ‘assistance’.”

    It is a concern hat the Barbados police Force can’t or won’t pt a stop to these Boscobel fools. Most visitors to Barbados are not streetwise enough to know how to handle the situation they find themselves in when told ‘I need $10’ after being told ‘The road ahead is closed’ by a complete stranger who is with 5 or 6 of his scruffy looking friends. Come on Barbados Police!!! Do Your Job!!!
