Can you imagine people walk and spit and we seldom flush the sidewalks. Then vendors come with their vegetables and place them on the ground where people just spat…we know of the increase carbon monoxide in the vehicle. You have those foods getting all of those bashing…if we understand what our health is, we wouldn’t just buy foods by the roadside,” Joseph said.The selling of marketable products out of the City market is illegal but many have been ignoring the law.Some three weeks ago, some vendors were forced out of the city sidewalks.Joseph said the police also responsibly for enforcing laws to clamp down on those conducting illegal vending on Roseau.Dominica Vibes News LocalNews Mayor Cecil Joseph defends decision to oust roadside vendors by: – April 5, 2011 Share Tweetcenter_img Sharing is caring! 29 Views   no discussions Sharelast_img
