NOTICE TO J1 STUDENTS FROM THE MB POLICE DEPARTMENT:
We wanted to make you aware that it is illegal for local citizens to charge you to transport you in their private vehicles. All drivers must have certificates and chauffer’s permits in order to drive students from place to place. It is our recommendation to take a taxi cab or bus.
Please be cautious when looking for secondary employment advertised on websites! You need to work with your sponsors to gain your secondary employment the right way.
