Some of the recent changes in the revised Motor Vehicles and Road Traffic Act will "go live" in just over a month. These changes include the Red-Light Camera Enforcement System and the Demerit Point System which will be supported by the new traffic ticketing system.
Speaking at the launch at the Hyatt Regency Ballroom on Wednesday, Works and Transport Minister Rohan Sinanan said the systems will go live on March 2. They are designed to help improve compliance on the nation's roads. The majority of vehicular accidents and road fatalities in T&T are the result of speeding.
Missing from the launch, however, was the Spot Speed Camera System which will pick up on drivers who break the speed limit.
Attorney General Faris Al-Rawi, who spoke at the launch, said legislation pertaining to the new system is currently before Parliament and should be finalised within a month.
