Bikers riding passengers face tough action
Santo Domingo.- National Police chief Nelson Peguero on Thursday warned that motorcycles riding two up will be stopped to check and verify that their papers are in order.
“We will be tough against those people that ride motorcycles with a passenger,” the official said, affirming that the police will profile the bikers to avoid inconvenience to citizens who use that transport to get to work or other commitments.”
After meeting with police commanders assigned to Greater Santo Domingo, Peguero warned motorcyclists to have all documents in order, “and obviously that they are not fake to avoid arrest.”
He said the streets belong to the police, not the criminals “and now even more that everyone knows that when an offense is committed we catch those responsible in a short time.”
The police chief responded to Thursday´s Listin Diario editorial entitled “We must confront the motorized murderers,” which proposes a special operation against the criminals who commit felonies with motorcycles.
