A new trend I noticed that the police have started is that they park on the shoulder and open the passenger door and stand on that side with the speed gun so it is more difficult to see them; other than timing from the concrete flyovers so u can't see them above.

PLEASE PEOPLE FLASH YOUR HEADLIGHTS TO WARN ONCOMING VEHICLES!!!

In the days of 120y, 720 pickup etc. It actually is a task and challenge to keep modern vehicles below this speed limit. Cruising economy mode speed on a civic is between 80-100. Even worse for these new pickups on the road. A hilux or navara cruising at 100-120. Roads are better, vehicles upgraded, everything needs to keep up with the time.


You right about that, many things have been upgraded. Roads, cars etc.
Except for our bodies.
Our bodies still are as susceptible to trauma as they were before. Brain damage or spinal cord injury are just as irreversible and devastating today as they were in the days of 120y and 720 pickup. And while cars are alot safer now, not everyone who is on the road is in a car. Some road users may opt to walk or ride to get where they're going (perhaps they don't own a car, perhaps they may reach quicker and avoid congestion if they don't drive).....they are still vulnerable to speeding drivers.

Frankly, Trinidad's roads are now so congested that speeding is a pointless exercise. I tired see people speeding past me on the highway only to park next to me in a looong line of bumper to bumper at the next red light for however long. Often times driving is a pointless exercise, ask anyone who heads into port of spain on a morning. On a side note, maybe it is time to make the roads safer so that more people can choose alternative ways of getting around (like riding a bike). This might even relieve the congestion, or at least provide a faster way to get around in congested areas. Speed guns might be one step in that direction of making roads safe enough for people to choose alternatives.

I've never took a bicycle on the highway still, not sure if it legal, and I pretty sure it not safe. Even driving on the highway sometimes can be unnerving....plenty drivers will overtake you at speed and come ridiculously close to clipping your front fender as they hurry into a gap in traffic. This occurs regardless of what lane you are in or the speed you go at. If another driver was to miscalculate and hit me doing said manuever though, i'd much rather be doing the legal speed than....whatever speed my car can manage.

Can never get away from drivers crossing the speed limit in excess, but the problem at hand here is the use of the speed gun in a manner that doesnt help the situation. It is just a money maker. At different times of the day and on certain roads in trinidad driving 90-100 kmph is not dangerous driving. One can drive at 120kmph safely whilst someone can be doing 50kmph driving dangerously. I have a pickup, and on the highway if i drive 65kmph at all times can be dangerous! We cross the speed limit and dont even realise it. My argument is that i think the speed LIMIT needs to be re evaluated for these modern times. I suggest 120kmph for cars and 100kmph for pickups, 80kmph for heavy vehicles in excess of mgw 3000kg. Now those are SPEED LIMITS. Does not mean we have to drive at that speed all the time. So a person who FEELS safer driving at 65 or 80 can do so. If these new speed limits come into effect, then they can use the speed gun however they want, atleast it will be fair to both citizens and the government.

Works and Transport Minister Rohan Sinanan has expressed hope that traffic in the Capital City will be alleviated with the launch of the Heavy Truck Inspection at the Caroni Licensing Office.

The new service was officially introduced on Tuesday and is expected to relieve heavy truck inspection at the Port of Spain and San Fernando Licensing Offices.

Minister Sinanan shared, “An issue we have with traffic fluidity, and especially in Port of Spain is that Wrightson Road is inundated with heavy trucks along the way to and from inspection. This relocation of the service will free-up the roads considerably.”

According to a statement released by the Works and Transport Ministry, further benefits to this change in service location will provide heavy truck drivers with access to more state of the art equipment. It said Caroni’s location has the capacity to inspect vehicles that are 40ft and weigh 30 tonnes. It added that inspection bays can also weigh vehicles with the capacity of 45 jacks.

Meanwhile, Minister Sinanan also took the opportunity to encourage Licencing Officers and Traffic Wardens to “carry out, to the full extent”, their authority in enforcing the applicable laws that govern the regulation of heavy trucks riding along motorways not designed for their weight. Breaches of such laws cause expensive damage to roadways due to excessive truck weight.

He warned that in the near future, the Ministry will more closely monitor such violation by “setting up bays at designated locations”. There, trucks will be pulled off the roads by authorities and weighed on the spot. In the event that a truck is overweight, the driver will be charged and the items on the truck will be impounded in accordance with the Motor Vehicle and Road Traffic Act Chapter 48:50 Sect 21 (1) (c).

The release further noted that vehicle owners can now obtain their certified copies at any licensing office thanks to the agency’s new centralised computer system. It added that certified extracts which were previously hand written will now be printed which will provide added evidence of ownership to newly registered vehicles. In addition, the statement said the Caroni Licensing Office has optimised its processes that govern the registration of maxi taxi and school buses. In this regard, it has reduced the duration from four months to one week and added the courtesy of a phone call when records are available for pick up.

According to the Transport Ministry, the public can also anticipate further improvements to licensing services when the new Arima Licensing Office launches in the very near future.

Wasn't there a report a few months ago about increasing the speed limit to 100 km/hr? Did that die with the change in minister of works?

Never thought it would actually happen tbh.....they won't make as much money with a higher speed limit.

Clearly you don't live in Trinidad. We don't have the luxury of working a few km away from home. Also, our sun is out and blazing hot by 7:00am. Also also, who going to ride on the Beetham all hours of the morning and the night?

Believe me, I would love to ride to and from work. Save on gas, good for the environment, good exercise for the body, good relaxation for the soul. But riding is not an alternative for the vast majority of drivers.

Btw, with regards of the revision of the speed limit, maybe rollingstock could chime in here; how many fatal accidents occur when cars are travelling between the speeds of 80km/hr and 100km/hr? I agree that speeding is dangerous and it is a contributor in many fatal accidents but there seems to be no conclusive evidence forthcoming that driving at 100km/hr and below is dangerous. This should not take into account instances of a$$hole driving causing an accident as that can occur at any speed and is due to c@ntish driving and not due to the speed of the vehicles.

While our highways are designed for a higher speed limit, they are not maintained properly. The speed limit should stay as is until, this is wishful thinking, a government decides to get serious about properly maintaining its infrastructure.

Isn't the point to reduce the speed of the drivers, not so?

When people drove without police on the road they go above 80kmph.

When they see police presence, they to drive below 80 kmph.
When they see flashing lights, they also drive below 80kmph.


So, if u want Trini to move like snail, just increase the presence of police and encourage flashing lights.





But, if the purpose is to eat ah food, then hide, and do speed traps sporadically.
Trinis don't drive above 80 because they like breaking the law, try do it because it's a stupid speed.

The whole blasted highway isn't degraded, so u can post signs where speed csn be higher or lower as required.

But, with a lifted pickup, 120 was average speed, and no problem on the highways.


Whereas, in other roads, 50 was posted and seemed to be very unsafe with a car, far less for the big trucks that frequent those roads.


So what ever science they use to calculate speed, might be the same science that allows for weed to be illegal, yet have a rasta in government.

So the police shouldn't hide to catch speeders ? I don't understand what people upset about. No matter how you look at it enforcing the speed limit makes people slow down. Trinis too damn indisciplined, I only wish we enforced everything more.
And for those who think I'm unaffected I generally follow the speed limit and on Gloria Saturday I got ticketed for doing 91km/h....... know who fault that was ? mine!!
