The Demerit Points System

RELEASE DATE: 24 Jan 2020

What is the Demerit Points System?

The Motor Vehicles and Road Traffic Act was amended in 2017, and brought the Judiciary, representatives of the Ministry of Works and Transport, the Office of the Attorney General and Ministry of Legal Affairs, the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service, TTPost and other stakeholders into a collaborative working relationship, to implement a new traffic system.

The Demerit Points System is utilised to monitor, track and improve the road behaviour of drivers. This will be implemented as a part of this transformative traffic system.
