Removal of 10+ year ban on Used Vehicles in The commonwealth of The Bahamas
To all fellow Bahamians,
On the 27th of May 2015. our Government instituted a ban on all importations of Cars older than 10 years, saying that it is for environmental reasons. They have yet to state what these reasons are in any which way or form, other than repeating some rhetoric that some of the larger car lots and dealers gave them to say. No study has been given to the Bahamian people, no information, and certainly no logic.
I believe that this ban on vehicles will inflate the overall cost of vehicles on our islands due to higher initial costs for these vehicles in the foreign markets.
If you support me in this endeavor, please feel free to sign this petition, and if you have anything to add to my arguments, please feel free to email me at
I will be attempting to have a meeting with my local mp to submit both this petition and a list of our arguments against this ridiculous ban
