ATTIC, TTPS and NCBA promote road safety for Carnival 2020

Friday, January 24, 2020 - 13:00

Trucks and trailers with permits to operate on the band route on Carnival Monday and Tuesday will have their validation stickers in time, courtesy a collaboration between the  Association  of  Trinidad  and  Tobago  Insurance  Companies (ATTIC), the  Trinidad  &  Tobago Police  Service  (TTPS)  and  the  National  Carnival  Bands  Association  (NCBA). 

In an official statement from ATTIC, the Association confirms that the stickers will be available for those with the necessary permits.

The release explains that the collaboration  initially  began  prior  to  2005  through  the  NCBA,  and  is  now  under  the  Mobile Office of the Assistant Commissioner of Police. ATTIC has sponsored the initiative from that time to the present.

ATTIC says this move is an important one for public safety and the successful coordination of  the road activities for  Carnival. 

According to the Association, only  the  vehicles  that  have  met  the  required  criteria  laid  out  by  the  TTPS—which includes  valid  vehicle  insurance,  proof  of  ownership  and  insurance  coverage  for  every passenger / person on the vehicle—are granted a permit.
