At this major intersection which branches to San Fernando,Trinidad, drivers are generally caught in deadlock traffic and this is an idea opportunity for the Highway vendor to canvas his assortment of nuts, drinks, car accessories and toys. These people risk their lives everyday by precariously walking, skipping and darting through moving traffic in the hope that a driver may have an urge to buy.
