Roadside assistance is available day and night
Since early November, at several spots along the road connecting Puerto Plata – Sosúa – Cabarete – Gaspar Hernández – Rio San Juan teams from the roadside service are ready to help road users in need for free. We spoke with Vargas and Castillo who stand guard in front of the car wash on at the main road through Sosúa.
Both men first had to complete a mechanics course before they were eligible for the position of roadside assistance. In the past two months, they were able to help at least 200 cars and motorcycles with trouble. Technical assistance is free for the driver, but for parts has to be paid. Especially around Christmas and New Year the two men were very busy. In this period there is much more traffic on the road. But the two men are happy to know that they were able to help to everyone’s satisfaction many car drivers and bikers. When you have a car or engine trouble, call the patrolman on phone number * 788 (free) or phone 829-688-1000 for assistance calls. The emergency assistance truck will be within a few minutes on-site to provide assistance. This service is available 24 hours a day and seven days a week.
