Changes to speed limit legislation will not happen unless there is public petition and organized outcry for such.
Echoing the sentiments of the Works and Transport Minister, Superintendent Singh of the Traffic and Highways Division this morning said the law will remain as is, with motorists being mandated to observe an 80 kilometre per hour speed limit on highways, unless there is strong public input.

Meanwhile, observing the cultural change since the implementation of speed guns to the operations of traffic patrol officers, Road Safety Coordinator of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service, Brent Batson said the population must be commended for its effort.
Mr. Batson pointed out that now it is easier to spot an errant driver, amid the free flow of cautious and law abiding drivers on the nation’s highways.
