Amet to regulate motorbike taxis at a cost of RD$367 million

Santo Domingo.- The Metropolitan Transport Authority (AMET) will regulate the motorcycle taxi drivers known as ‘motoconchistas’ in a plan costing RD$367 million. The transport police warns that any motorbike taxis travelling illegally once the process is complete will face a RD$1,500 fine.

The Amet director, General Juan Brown said that as of April 1st they would have five points in strategic locations in Greater Santo Domingo, San Cristóbal, Santiago and in La Altagracia province, where the motoconchistas could acquire their registration plates and reflective jackets free of charge.

He said that of the 1.6 million motoconchistas nationwide, 700,000 do not have registration plates. Of this total, 500,000 are organized.

    When are they going to stop ignoring all motorcycles driving on the wrong side of the road, driving down one way streets the wrong way and ignoring traffic lights?? All these practices are extremely dangerous for other road users including pedestrians, It defies belief that the AMET just look the other way.
