I politely told an officer to impound my BT50

Postby V2NR 3.0 » March 14th, 2012, 1:33 pm

Trinidad and Tobago is such a sweet place.

I got pulled over this morning in the vicinity of Seeram Brothers by police officer conducting a massive road block. The "young boy" officer pulled me over...I complied. The said officer walked up to my van and said he was doing a test to see if my tint was in line with the law. I asked him which part of the law he was referring to and whether there was a defined requirement.

The "young boy" officer said i would have to strip my van. I simply told the officer that he would have to impound the vehicle since i am NOT stripping any tint because this is how the vehicle came from the factory - factory installed tint. I explained to him this is how the vehicle came and this is the original tint. Young boy is hyped up and tells me i have to strip the tint....i come out the vehicle, grab my camera and say by all means - go ahead. Write down his police id number which is displayed on his uniform.

He calls his senior officer and the old man comes around and asks what is the issue here...I explain to him what was happening and he responds "I dont know what wrong with these young boy police officers these days nah...you are free to go...

Whats really going on in this place?

The Police service needs to reconsider the criteria for hiring these new Officers because SOME of them not very bright as in this incident.

The thing is - at the beginning of the road block were numerous License Officers and i passed through like normal because my van is stock as some of you know. Is coming down to the end - the young boy police officer wah play he beating he chest.

So the relevance of this thread - aside for a small rant - what will happen if you are passing through these things with snorkel, mud tyres, fog lights, big frontal bumper, winch etc etc - van men dead !

While some of the above may not be "illegal" the perception and the opportunity may be there to get pulled over for some "ole talk" from these high profile educated police officers ?

It must be a strategy, the stupider they are the easier they are to control....

Why not ? What makes him all mighty and powerful ? The worse case scenario is that my vehicle would be impounded and there are legal processes to deal with that. I have no problem of a person doing their job - however i do have a problem with abuse of power and propagation of non-sense.

Something as simple as tint - there is no legal guideline on this and virtually subjective to whims and fancies of whomever at that time....So a police / lisc officer wake up on the wrong side of the bed the morning of a road block and the public has to pay for his stupidness...

I agree with your cause . . . but Police cannot impound at a road block, license officers can

do you really want to go through all that inconvenience of having your vehicle impounded, then going through the slow (and who knows how long) legal proceedings to proove that you were right to get it back

suppose it takes 6 months or 1 year?

who knows please enlighten us on the process?
