Errant drivers beware, MOWT to launch U-Turn System soon

Lawless drivers will soon be forced to make a 'U-Turn' on their illegal behaviour, once new legislation is introduced under the Motor Vehicle and Road Traffic Act.

The Ministry of Works and Transport said in a series of tweets on Monday that it will soon be launching its 'U-Turn System - Revolutionary Enforcement' with an aim toward revolutionising the driving culture in Trinidad and Tobago. 


The Ministry said this involves the implementation of amendments to the Motor Vehicle and Road Traffic Act. 

"The amended legislation will see the total transformation of the Motor Vehicle and Road Traffic Laws through the introduction of key systems which are supported by Information Communication Technology," the Ministry said.

The Ministry said some of the reforms include the Red-Light Camera System, the Spot Speed Camera Enforcement System, Demerit Points System, the reform of the Fixed Penalty Ticketing System and the transformation of the Licensing Authority. 

"These new systems play a crucial role in the fight against lawlessness, crime and corruption in Trinidad and Tobago as well as ensure the safety and well-being of all citizens," the Ministry.

The Ministry encouraged citizens to follow official updates via the Ministry's social media pages and website.
