T&T Police say it's illegal for security to clamp your car

Postby Duane 3NE 2NR » August 16th, 2018, 1:59 pm



The Trinidad & Tobago Police Service TTPS say it is illegal for a security guard, mall or business to clamp a vehicle on their compound and even more so to charge a fee to release it. He says the security, business or mall owner should instead call the police to remove the vehicle.

Hmmm...interesting. That means plenty people may have legitimate cases against these establishments. Ms. Ministry will probably re-surface to say she has been vindicated...:|

UWI police are EC's, not not TTPS. so dey would be wrong to boot a vehicle

recently a security in a supermarket car park tell me they using the boot on cars that park up there too long, iirc he say 3hrs is the free parking limit.
So I stopped & we started talking about it & I ask him, if I park there & they put that on my wheel, what exactly is to stop me from leaving with my car & their boot, where I could just destroy the boot at my leisure when I get my car home. He say d car go cyah drive. When I I tell him, I don't need to drive the car for me to leave with it, that's what wreckers & dollies are there for.
d man jaw literally drop when he realize what i telling him & he start to laugh.
then he ask me if it worth the wrecker fee, & he say it easier to just pay the lil $200. I tell him, it worth it to me, cuz the wrecker from there to home by me is about the same $200, & I sure they paid PLENTY more for that boot that they not gonna ever get back than I'll pay for the wrecker to pull my car home.


but all that aside eh. ppl like to teef a park in this country. they will pull up in a car park & lie for a parking spot. Or pull up in a private parking lot you have for your customers & park where ever/however they want & leave & go Toco. When asking politely & following instructions, or paying for a space is so much easier

I have always wondered about the legality of these clamps or boots in malls etc.
I actually was of the view that appropriate authorization was in place.
Clearly, the owners of malls need to do proper homework and ensure what they are doing don't contravene the laws.
What is also very important is getting designated handicap parking spaces properly legitimized and supported with proper regulations.

UWI police are EC's, not not TTPS. so dey would be wrong to boot a vehicle. . .

I thought UWI Police and other "Estate" type police have all the powers of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service, with the exception of a few duties. You could check Chapter 15:02 - Supplemental Police Act to see the duties and powers of Estate Police.

So once the security organisation is registered legally as Estate Police, they should be able to clamp the cars.

nah, you don't have to pay.
The offender has to pay to get back their vehicle.
