A new license plate system is on the horizon for motorists in Trinidad and Tobago where all new vehicles will soon be outfitted with radio frequency identification marker (RFID) for additional security. This from Works Minister Rohan Sinanan says Works Minister Rohan Sinanan at the opening of a new bridge off Mission road Freeport on Saturday.
Minister Sinanan said this new proposed system will make it much easier for vehicle tracking by the police. He also said the logistics of the new plates are still being worked out and that a vehicle owner may have the option of transferring his RFID plates when he or she changes a vehicle.
He said a bill was laid in Parliament on Wednesday and once the bill is debated and passed we will have the new license plate system maybe by the end of the year,
Additionally in what this country has come to expect in the lead up to a General Election Minister Sinanan also promised an extensive road paving is set to begin after Budget Day on October 7 which he said would bring relief to thousands of motorists.
Ministers Sinanan said that many infrastructural projects which started more than two years ago were nearing completion and these are in schedule to be opened and commissioned over the next few months.
The bridge which he officially opened Saturday at Todds Road cost the tax payers $4.3 million and Sinanan said he was happy that the commuters who suffered for the past nine years will finally get some relief with the opening of the new bridge.
