Carnival truck drivers warned by TTPS

Friday, February 17 2017

A SPECIAL team headed by an Assistant Superintendent and Licensing Officers will be out to enforce the law during Carnival especially to ensure that all music, drink trucks and tractors have the required permits to be on the road.

Acting Superintendent (Traffic and Highway Patrol Branch) Mathura Singh said on Wednesday that officers will examine all music trucks to ensure all safety measures are in place.

“If you exceed the number of persons specified by Licensing (Authority) on the Carnival permits, you will be charged. We will be looking at those who are parading outside the band route.

We will be looking at the truck or tractor to ensure road worthiness.

Drivers must be in possession of valid documents,” Singh said.

He said there are passes available for people working in and around Port-of-Spain, truck drivers and people who live within the Carnival village. “We will like to remind people who wish to use the Carnival Village that we are still issuing route passes at the Assistant Commissioner’s (Mobile) office in Aranjuez.

Singh said that for the year so far, there have been nine road fatalities arising from seven accidents.

Compared to the same period last year, there were 22 deaths coming out of 26 accidents.

He said the police have issued 716 speed tickets this year. We are only in two weeks of February, less than 60 days and we have already issued 716 speed tickets.

Because of our enforcement and education drive we have seen a reduction in road fatalities,” Singh said.
