Transport cartels reject removal of “conchos”
Many of the country’s transport cartels as well shared taxi drivers have described the recent proposal made by CONATRA for the authorities to remove some 40,000 junk vehicles from the roads of Greater Santo Domingo and Santiago as “inconsiderate and antidemocratic.” Drivers on many of the main routes in Santo Domingo, along Winston Churchill, Bolivar, San Martin, 27 Febrero, Maximo Gomez and Duarte avenues rejected the accusation that the “anarchy and vehicular disorder existing in public transportation are caused by the conchos (shared taxis).”
Alfredo Pulinario Linares (Cambita), the president of one of the associations, said that more than 22,000 cars are affiliated to his organization. He told reporters from El Nacional newspaper that it is a blatant lie that conchos are the cause of the disorder and traffic jams in the National District and Greater Santo Domingo.
