Not a cop in sight

Where is the Police Highway Patrol? During the massive traffic jam last Wednesday, which I joined at 6.30 p.m. at the Beetham Highway at John John, there were no officers to be seen. I left at the Maritime roundabout and rejoined at El Socorro. Not a police car in sight. What happened? How many vehicles does this “Highway Patrol” have? How many officers are assigned to this unit? 

Is it right for a driver to go miles along a major highway and not see a police vehicle on patrol? 

By the way, is anyone reviewing the speed limit? Are we serious about changing our driving culture?
