    How can you prove that my car was with X and it was not him/her or even the owner who was driving?

  • Bernardo

    The authorities do not need to prove anything. You are, by default, responsible for traffic violations that happened through your vehicle, unless you can prove on the spot (to a law enforcer) or in court, that somebody else was using it at the time of the violation.

    I find the system not ready to be put into practice when we talk abt the camera thing. It’s about penalizing the driver not the owner of the car. So, if I have a car and all the five house members drive it, am I supposed to keep a log book into the car?

    If the authority find your car beyond the speed limit, don’t they need evidence to incriminate the person at the wheel at the moment of the action? Don’t this need to be proven by the ones who are putting the blame on you? I might perhaps watch NCIS too much but let’s say that there’s a crime in which my gun is used. Does that mean that I killed the person or will the police investigate properly to gather proofs that can prove that the gun was effectively used by person X at the time the crime was committed?

  • Bernardo

    Whatever method you use (log book, plain memory etc.), one of the drivers will ultimately have to take the blame.. unless your car was stolen (but that’s another story). If no-one willingly takes the blame, then the case will probably be reported to court.. I imagine the penalties will escalate in such cases… I think this is perfectly fair, people need to be made accountable..

  • Yashvin Awootar

    We will wait and see how they handle things. Remember, no law is perfect (not in mauritius lol) :-)

    Eski ena bann Speed CCTV ki p vey Speed Camera la? Tension vandalisme

  • Adarsh Hasnah

    In principle, you have to be responsible for your own car..

    Anyways about the DLC things..the big question is why do we have to present a copy of the DLC to the police whenever they do their routines check…It is the court that has to decide how many points to give to you depending on the “offences” …not the policeman.

    Like the saying goes “100 zours pour voleur, 1 zour pour la police”…this one should be more like “100 zours pour la police, 0 zours pour le peuple”

  • Siganus Sutor

    You are welcomed to report any new camera installed

    Well, I’m reporting about the same kind of equipment that has just been fixed on the sidewalk at Paillote, not far from the entrance to the Candos hospital. (See photos here and here.)

  • Yashvin Awootar

    Thank you :-)
    I will be posting the picture in a new post, with credits to you of course. And in some time, I will create a map with all reported fixed speed cameras.

    i got a question about this new drivers license regulation.
    in my case for instance am currently residing in the uk and won’t be back for another two or three years, if when i come back and start driving on the next day and am stopped by the police, am i going to be fined???
    since obviously i won’t have the new drivers license.

  • Yashvin Awootar

    Probably yes. I’m pretty sure because the counterpart thing becomes part of your driving license. When you reach Mauritius, the first thing you need to do is to go to the line barracks.

  • Girish

    There is one fixed camera on st paul road just after winner before the signals

  • Yitin Bissessur

    lol!!that sounds fun spending my first day back in MRU at line barracks!!!can i send someone else to get it like my dad???

  • Yashvin Awootar

    Lol. I dont think that it will take much time. At the same time, you can have an alouda :-)

  • Yashvin Awootar

    Forgot to reply a part of your question.
    Yes, you can write a letter of authorization and give it to someone else. You will also need to hand over your National Identity Card to your representative.
