Santo Domingo.- The Public Works Ministry’s Land Transit Agency on Friday announced that heavy vehicles are banned from operating on the roads nationwide from December 24 until 10pm the 27th, as is the tradition during the Christmas holidays.
It said the same ban will also be in effect during the New Year activities, from 12 noon December 31 to 10pm January 4. “The action is carried out in order to prevent traffic accidents during the Christmas and New Year festivities,” Land Transit said.
