What is the speed limit on the branch road at Palmyra?
It was heartening to see the welcome advice given in the Stabroek News (May 31) by the Senior Traffic Officer, Mr Brian Joseph, regarding proceeding on the amber light as raised by Mr Colin Gill in the Stabroek News of May 24.
I am now encouraged to ask the Senior Superintendent if he would kindly please 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 apply to this branch road?
We are sending a copy of this letter to Traffic Officer, Senior Superintendent Brian Joseph for any comment he might wish to make.
