 PRESS CONFERENCE: LAUNCH OF THE SPEED MEASURING DEVICES (SPEED GUNS)
MINISTRY OF WORKS AND TRANSPORT & TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO POLICE SERVICE
(Friday 29th April, 2016)


                                        
On Friday 29th April, 2016, the Ministry of Works and Transport (MOWT) held a Press Conference at the Ministry’s Head Office, to launch the Speed Measuring Devices (Speed Guns) Initiative as part of a collaborative effort with the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) to improve road safety.


The importance of speed management in roadway safety systems cannot be over emphasized as there exists overwhelming research which indicates a clear physical relationship between increased injury severity and increases in speed. Minister of Works and Transport, the Honourable Fitzgerald Hinds, indicated that the Speed Guns were to come into effect on 2nd May, 2016 and will be used by the police to ensure motorists adhere to legal speed limits of 80km/h on highways and 65km/h in built up areas.

The Speed Guns to be used are the LTI Tru Cam 20/20 Lidar/Laser Speed Measuring Device. A live demonstration of the Speed Guns was done showing off the following features:

  • Photo and Video Recording
  • GPS
  • Vehicle Specific Target Acquisition
  • Number Plate Photo Targeting
  • Error Trapping Software
  • Digital User Interface
  • Anti-Jamming Technology
  • Night Accessories
  • Road Side Printing

Minister Hinds also disclosed that the speed guns would be used in conjunction with other traffic law enforcement technology which will soon be on stream in the form of Spot Speed Enforcement Cameras and the Red Light Enforcement Cameras; both of which are in advanced testing phases at the Ministry.

Also, in attendance were Mr Randolph Protain - Chief Traffic Warden, Mr. Brent Batson-Coordinator of the Road Safety Project-TTPS and other high profile members of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service.

  • Exceeding legal speed limits can incur a fine of $1000.00 TTD
