And an even lower than 50km/h limit around schools and small residential roads

Talking about actually doing some study and analysis .

170 is too odd a figure. And 180 gonna make everyone remember the oppression of 80. I say 200 and we should be good.

My assumption is that areas where 80 is the existing limit will go to 100 and highways areas previously 50 will go to 80. Other roads like main roads will probably remain at 50. Hope the signage improves.

Roads like Diego highway could be 65 but not 80. Too much sudden bends.

I lack the driving maturity to stay at 80 therefore I will welcome the 100 when/if it comes.

Once the road has traffic lights it should remain 80. So from GB East should stay at 80 until they remove the lights.

Pnm logic
Pnm ' we gonna harshly enforce the speed limit at 80kmph'
Pnm supporter ' yes, them is the best, anything above 80 will,result in immediate death'

Pnm, 'we increasing the speed limit to 100'
Pnm supporter, ' u see how we govament does be fixing the nations, all ways changing for the better'




anything could go on, once a pnm in the top position, thst is all that matters.

umm we dont have a freeway here in trinidad or tobago.
a freeway is an express highway where there is usually not a set speed limit.
there is however a penalty fine if you go under the recommended speed



An expressway is a high speed highway that has few intersections and some restricted access.

A freeway is a high speed highway with no intersections and only controlled access where exits and interchanges are typically a cloverleaf.

I'm quite fine with 80km/h. The increase in speed limit comes just in time for the Christmas rush.
