The folks who currently drive with no permits, bogus insurance, especially the ones who can't read English, salute these valiant efforts.

Riveting stuff, would suck to not be able to use the phone's gps to navigate while driving.

Only way around would be to have a phone mount or something, and probably a handsfree device for calls, idk how they would be able to prove you using a phone if it not visible. You could be singing along with the radio for all they know, especially if the headset on your left ear

all them shoulder drivers should get the most points
shoulder driving has to be the most blatant form of disrespect for the law
pure willful disregard

it should also be tied to other crimes like gun crime convictions = loss of driving permit

So how do they plan to implement a demerit system if they cannot even computerize the current system? Hell they can’t even keep accurate tracks on vehicle registrations, how the hell dp they expect to keep track of a demerit system on each person in the system? Once again donkey before the kart syndrome.

And anyone caught driving on the shoulder should be immediately suspended from a drivers permit for 6 months for a first offense, and for any taxi doing such should get 1 year... they want to help clean up the roads, then increase the severity of the penalties...

Double jeopardy is being tried for the same crime twice.

Multiple punishments meted out for one crime is different.

Cruel and unusual punishment??

That's the reason to not hang once you on death row more than 5 years

gotta disagree with this. unless you can prove that possession of an illegal weapon relates directly to the offenders driving its basically penalizing them multiple times and ways for a single offense in ways that don't relate to the offense.
suppose the offender is a taxi driver that gets robbed and beaten weekly and he's found with an illegal firearm in his home. if he's charged a fine, and loses his license, how's he supposed to pay the fine? and remember, he suffered at the hands of bandits a lot already, and was only trying to defend himself.
by all means they should penalize offenders to deter them and others, but doh go crazy with the retribution, it helps nothing and no one.

Disagree, they should get cuffed 40 times in their head and allowed on their way.

this have me wondering something
iirc, the rta states that proof of insurance must be present in the vehicle while operating on the nations roads, but I can't remember seeing anything anywhere about the insurer must be operating with an actual physical structure in T&T.

if that d case some ppl gonn be buying their vehicle insurance in the Cayman Islands or wherever else they could get it cheap.

To access your demerits they only need your Permit Number and Date of Birth which they would have both of. So yeah, from introduction of the points system they will.
