^...that's the idea and no one seems to figure it out yet. the idea of the camera is that it's a speed deterrent due the high number of accidents, some fatal on the corner going in either direction.

I have only seen the flash at a distance. Apparently everyone driving around me when I pass there slows down enough.

What does it need to capture the pic of your face for ? THey sending the ticket to your face ?

It only needs your plate number... which is fine to snap from the back, where the flash is not blinding drivers at night.... endangering even more people on the road. Typical Trini mentality... I wonder what fool planned that one out ?

BTW... the accidents are not the result of pure speed... it is the result of careless, reckless drivers that fill the nations roads. The presence of a camera just highlight's the fact that TnT police are not interested in patrolling the roads or reprimanding drivers that break the law.

A step in the wrong direction... once again... wasting this country's money.... while benefiting no one. Much like the red light camera at the hyatt intersection.

If I were a conspiracy theorist... I would say that the cam is to catalog people for facial recognition... to know who uses what routes.... coupled with the flagrant cell phone and land line monitoring that goes on right now... and buying up of info from social sites.... what is the gov't up to ? Why they feel the need to spy on our population so keenly...what are they afraid that we know ?

But I'm not a conspiracy theorist.... so I didn't say that.

I no longer see the flash whether day time or night time, but I see the red light occasionally and I am always going around 100kmph when passing there.
The flash mash up ah wa? :lol:

In what country ? You is a lawyer ?

No country using video or photo uses flash in your face.... it's dangerous... carry on tho...Please tell us the secrets of Trinidad... because the government does not inform the citizenry of what it's doing.

I wasn't even alluding to that, but from the manner of your reply it seems you have a chip up your ass.
I left my statement vague as I was waiting even further information that I just received to clear up all ambiguities in the entire thread.

But that's it, the amount of arseholes on this site I'll never venture to give any advice or information on here again.

That is the most dangerous thing to do....I believe that action will increase accidents or near miss in that area.
The camera also appears to have some leeway with regards to the speed at which the flash is activated. I have also yet to see it activate when vehicle is in the left lane.
Since no one is being charged yet. .... Now is the time to test it.
And for heavens sake. .... Please don't apply brakes if nothing is in front of you but that camera. ...release the accelerator if you want to slow down or move over and let people who want to get flash go

^^^How so? I never said people hitting brakes from 140kph to get to 80kph eh.

Or maybe I should have worded it differently. Most times in that area I see people passing at around 80-90kph. Adjustment is made from quite El Socorro turn off.....by easing off the accelerator and keeping left(can speak for myself).

Or sometimes I forget and get flash :mrgreen:

My apologies to you. ... my experience of people slowing is applying brakes just before the camera, in the area around the turn off by Advanz, to reduce speed from whatever they were doing before to get to 80kph and below. If they backed off from the accelerator and still find they moving to fast, they apply brakes at the last possible moment where they think the camera won't pick then up.
The people in the right Lane who do this also stay in Lane to show they are such responsible drivers; not overtaking anything.
People can drive past at 90 and it still won't activate. There is some leeway. ... at least for now, if people are so concerned with their speed.
Again my apologies to you.

No scene man.
But I won't like to see anyone doing what you described though. That's just stupid.

I would like to see a 120 speed limit with a strict "everybody above that" getting ticketed system. But I know trinis will want to try driving that 120 in the wet and still end up crashing so I agree the limit hada stay at the 80 for now.




We need different dry and wet limits to help out those who don't have any knowledge of physics or common sense


We also need to stop the importation of cheap low standard tyres into the country.
Especially foreign used tyres.
I've parked next to cars with snow tyres here on Trinidad. Scary try think I have to share the road with them.

Would you believe that those same snow tyres will outperform your summer tyres in the wet. It is only when it is hot that they have poor performance.

Snow tires have best wet performance... But run from them when dry season reach
