The right lanes (inner lanes) of the eastbound and westbound lanes of the CRH-El Socorro will be closed on Fri.11th to Wed. 16th Dec. from 10AM to 4PM.

These works are necessary in order to facilitate on-going installation of infrastructure for the Spot Speed Enforcement.

Will there be any document showing the speed?Since just a warning will be administered I would like to have a copy as evidence to frame and put on my wall....seeing that we don't have a "Fastest you ever drove thread" any more

Nah I think PP put in the camera that flashes after the summit. Like 2 years ago.

daxt0r no ticket. They put it there to gather info and see how many people break the light according to suruj.

I cannot comment of the cost or on to the cost benefit analysis . However I like to drive as spirited as the next guy , but this is in an area of the CRH where there has been an abundance of crashes and deaths . In that sense, its long over due . How its going to be implemented with information and legislation is another matter .

Does the equipment have the ability to differentiate police cars, fire service vehicles and ambulances, or will they be getting tickets like the rest of us?

I'm hoping for the latter.

80kmph is ridiculously slow. But the shambles we have on the road for vehicles with substandard parts. They need to keep it at 80 just for the safety of the rest of us. Enforcing the speed limit is just part of dealing with them. I am less concerned about someone passing me above the speed limit in something reasonable. Than someone in a shakedown vehicle.

I drive max 120 in the dry and 80 in the wet assuming a clear road and a regular car. Divide those numbers by 1.5 to get how fast I drive in a tiida. Multiply those numbers by 1.5 if the tiida is a taxi :(

I would like to see a 120 speed limit with a strict "everybody above that" getting ticketed system. But I know trinis will want to try driving that 120 in the wet and still end up crashing so I agree the limit hada stay at the 80 for now.

its hard to raise speed limit as all interchanges flyovers ect are designed and built already to be taken at a sped of 80 for maximum safety.


what they can do is raise speed limit for certain parts, but with over excellent rds, safety concerns are an issue. (words from designer at NIDCO when i worked there)
