WHAT ARE THE RULES CONCERNING SPEEDING?
It was heartening to see the welcome advice given in today’s Stabroek News (31/5/12) by the Senior Traffic Officer, Mr. Brian Joseph, regarding ‘proceeding on the amber light’ as reportedly raised by Mr. Colin Gill in the Stabroek News of May 24, 2012.
I am now encouraged to ask the Senior Superintendent if he would kindly do likewise regarding the issues raised in my letter earlier this week concerning the police ‘ambushing’ and charging motorists who use the new, lonely branch road at Palmyra which connects the Berbice River Bridge with the New Amsterdam -.Corentyne Highway for allegedly ‘speeding’.
As I indicated before, there are no speed limits posted on this new branch road and to the best of my knowledge, this road has not even been gazetted accordingly. Furthermore, even if a careful, circumspect, law-abiding citizen were to apply commonsensical extrapolation, which of the different speed limits of the principal road applies to this branch road?
