Arrive Alive wishes to compliment the Ministry of Works and Transport and its team for the amendment to the Demerit Points System, including and particularly Rohan Sinanan, Minister of Works and Transport, and permanent secretary Sonia Francis-Yearwood, along with Marvin Gonzalves and his legal team.
This is a significant step forward in delivering on its mission to improve safety on our roads for all users by upgrading the enforcement capability via technology, and thereby making drivers accountable for their poor actions. It will certainly change driver behaviour once properly enforced, by either camera detection, or the TTPS on our nation’s roads.
Technology is imperative to criminal detection on our roads and in our country, and we know the Traffic Enforcement Centre is ready and able to man the UTurn system.
This is the first time, to our knowledge, the direct stakeholders of road safety being the Ministry of Works and Transport, the Transport Commissioner, the Attorney General and his team, the judiciary, and TTPost, have worked together so effectively to develop a cohesive and effective management system, as well as to close the many gaps that existed within the process and the actual law.
Arrive Alive is pleased to support this programme by continuing to promote and deliver driver education and driver rehabilitation courses that are a significant factor in improving safety on our roads. Now is the time to re-educate ourselves and to take defensive driving classes.
We are excited and wish to remind all road users, particularly drivers, to view our website, as well as the ministry’s website, to learn more about this system.
president, Arrive Alive
