TTPS Road Safety Coordinator, Brent Batson says the red light cameras and speed cameras will come on stream by mid-2020.
He says the installation of these, along with the demerit system, which will see people’s licenses revoked for committing repeated driving offences, will make a difference in the way people use the nation’s roads. Mr. Batson has been speaking on the Power Breakfast Show on Thursday morning.
He also warned persons who attempt to drive under the influence of marijuana that the offence carries a steep fine of $250,000 and 5 years imprisonment.
Mr. Batson however admitted that police have no way to test the levels of marijuana in a driver’s system and officers can request, but not order that a suspect accompany them to the hospital for a blood test.
