I gave a small chuckle when I read there were thousands of motorists lining up to have their vehicles inspected for mechanical suitability and roadworthiness and, if successful, who would receive the appropriate windscreen sticker.
After a five-month moratorium, Trinidadians and to a lesser extent Tobagonians, in their usual ‘laissez faire’ attitude to law and order, failed to take advantage of the generous ‘bligh’ given them. So vehicle inspections became a crisis.
What does this attitude tell us about our culture? This last-minute push to accomplish so many important things? Our inability to observe the laws of the country?
