AMET begins preparation for Holy Week
On 22 March 2017 in Santiago, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (AMET) announced the launch of their accident prevention program for Holy Week 2017. The Easter holidays will take place the week of 9-16 April 2017. Here for students, it is the local equivalent of the US Spring Break.
The activity, which was held at the Monument to the Heroes of the Restoration, was led by the director general of AMET, Feneral Frener Bello Arias, who stressed the need for citizens to take actions to prevent traffic fatalities especially during the period of Holy Week, known to be the peak time for domestic travel.
He noted that over 2,000 AMET agents around the country would be working in this prevention program. AMET showed off a long caravan of new equipment that would be put into use during Holy Week known throughout the country as Semana Santa.
The prevention campaign caravan went through Moca, La Vega and will continue tomorrow in Bonao and Villa Altagracia and next week they will visit La Altagracia, La Romana and San Pedro de Macoris.
