Re: Interchange at Curepe - Churchill Roosevelt Highway/Southern Main Road flyover

I agree. So five residents are asking for $250/sqft vs $175. Even on 10k sq ft lots that's a total difference of what? 3.75M? With the potential to stall this process it seems like they are just being penny wise.. or is it that the penalties paid for delays have some form of contributions included?

Re: List of vehicle inspection stations in Trinidad & Tobago

Another funny thing is the majority of mgw and tare that are painted on are the wrong size. The regulation states a minimum of 65mm in height or 2.5inches and most are under 2inches yet all are passing inspection.

Don't know why more companies haven't jumped to bring the diesel versions of their small vehicles. Maybe if we start importing ulsd that would change.

No one in this thread seems to know what kind of mileage they actually get. Exactly.

Re: License Officers and Truckers today

Fine should be much more. This practice destroys the roads. Only problem for the truck drivers is they don't know they're overloaded. Should have a scale at the exit of each quarry for them to check before going out on the road. Til they get that just load less in the truck.

Re: CNG tank explodes in school bus

If gasoline hits $10/l it will become very attractive. Unfortunately not many manufacturers have it available from the factory and the cng tanks take up too much space in a normal car trunk.
