Traffic cops will stop vehicles with slick tires
Santo Domingo.- The Metropolitan Transit Authority (Amet) will enforce the Pubic Work Ministry’s order to prohibit the use of overly worn tires in vehicles on all roads across the country.
Amet director Frener Bello said traffic cops were instructed to halt all vehicles with overly worn tires, which he affirms are behind a high number of accidents, mostly heavy vehicles.
The official said he ordered the creation of a special inspection unit to conduct stricter checks on tires. “This is a unit that will be permanently on the streets, highways and roads in vigilance, to prevent the use of slick tires.”
Bello added that the unit will be bolstered at the toll plazas, since drivers are forced to slow their vehicles down.
