I agree at least radio should be allowed. But I think the problem is enforcement. Give Trinis a inch they will take a mile. Allowing radio will open the gates for all the other excesses. Ban all and done.

I don't travel but i think it might be a good idea to avoid abuses. If u need entertainment you have headphones, ipod etc for your personal use.


^^agreed


maxis provide transport...not entertainment!!!

when u in a subway train in the US what do you hear?

but u conform nicely.

that rule regarding maxis is asinine at best, any halfway decent lawyer would fight that successfully

What's so wrong with it? Almost every phone nowadays has an FM radio in it, you get a pair of headphones, put em on and listen to what you want.

Probably get a better one than having people listen to Rachel Price in the morning, or whatever the driver feels to subject the people in the maxi to.

under the current legislation a maxis entitled to a radio and 2 speakers in small maxis and 4 in a large maxi with specific wattage, now they want to remove that? Utter backward thinking with no foresight whatsoever . When that legislation was enacted it was to combat the loud maxi music at the time what's the excuse now?

If that's the biggest problem with the act this is damn good legislation. Trinis beat up for all the unimportant sheit.

the alcohol part i agree with, the other part i don't.....it just postpones the period at which they will be new to driving at night or highway etc.....

i would think that 20% visual light transmission should be good for the tint....after all we live in a tropical country....i hope they don't follow the law of some american states where its as light as 70%

as for antiques.....*rubs hands* Hakosuka GTR* :lol:


well what we have now is that they new to ANY type of driving- they go from only driving while taking driving lessons to being able to drive ALONE AT NIGHT on HIGHWAYS

we should have for instance only supervised driving up to say 9pm (speed limit 65 on highway) BAC level 20 mcg which would give them some experience with night driving without them being out alone, giving them more time to consume alcohol, become sleepy then drive at 3 AM, etc.

as for the tint- 20% is kinda dark- as a reference most US states it's above that- u have to consider the reason for the law (e.g.-i believe officers need to see inside the vehicle for weapons, perhaps for their own safety)

California - 70% Front Anything rear
Florida - 27% Front, 15% rear
Texas - 25% Front, 25% rear

I see nothing wrong with 35% front 20% rear for Trinidad.

a staggered/limited license is just being redundant, because we have a system that deals with that already....its called a learner's permit.......

so how you guys feel about the license plate being linked to the owner and not being sold with the car? And being made by a central authority also?
I've wanted this for a long time instead of the printing number plate by the corner parlour

As long as bandits can't reproduce the official plates . Once u get plates it should be yours for lifetime.
Central authority may have to post the plates otherwise it's going to be madness when time to collect the new plates .

i hope they realise that motorcycles need smaller plates and take that into consideration when laying out the rules with regards to sizes.
if they don't, i'll just run my plate like one of these, because i'm not running a full sized plate on the back of a dirt bike......that's ridiculous.

i don't think u can consider someone an experienced driver after just a few lessons- even insurance companies know this-though some take it to extreme though by charging higher rates for ppl all the way up to 25

its something we should consider- there have been accidents involving ppl who got their license just a couple days before

and a few countries like US UK China do have it

Is the travelling public upset about the proposed removal of radios in maxis or just the operators? Maybe one of the news programs or newspapers will interview people to find out.

A lot of maxi drivers rely on the radio for news, sports etc, not to play BS music at high volumes. That rule is total nonsense because drivers are going to find a way to get around it anyway. Instead of radios in maxis why don't they tackle the thousands of derelict, non-roadworthy vehicles on the road

Arent there laws about the derelict vehicles already? Aren't all vehicles required to be inspected regularly and if not the driver can be fined? Just like that, it comes down to policing and if the police aren't doing their job then the maxi operators don't have much to worry about either.

True, but those laws ought to be strengthened so those vehicles can be permanently removed from the roads.

What about those morons in private cars who drive up and down all day and night blasting their music, they are an even bigger nuisance, and those with fart cannons on their snail vehicles. Don't get me wrong, I'm unaffected with the maxi law as my ipod is always on, but they must bring a logical reason for that piece since almost every vehicle coming with a radio standard.
