    As AE pointed out you confused Marbete with Re-Vista. I can hardly see out the right side of my windshield as there is so many stickers. The good news is the cops looking for tips can't see in either.
    Life here is full of trade offs.

    Default Automobile Inspections to start in 2018

    More than half of the almost two million vehicles in circulation in the Dominican Republic would not pass a rigorous technical review to determine if the vehicle is adequate for circulation, according to Luis Molina, coordinator of the Dominican Alliance for Safety and Road Mobility (Avial). He estimates that 1,230,503, or 70% of the 1,757,862 vehicles in circulation, including 100% of the public transport vehicles, would not pass real inspections.

    The National Institute for Transit and Land Transport (Intrant) recently announced that real inspections would begin in 2018. But Luis Alba doubts the Intrant will have sufficient workshops to carry out the inspections, as reported in Diario Libre. He also speculated the Intrant would have inherited the old tricks from its predecessor, the OTTT that consistently has allowed inadequate vehicles to continue to circulate.

    The director of the Intrant, Claudia Franchesca de los Santos has said preparations are underway so that in the second half of 2018 the first Annual Technical Vehicular Revision be started. All vehicles would be subject to the reviews. Workshops fitted with automated inspection equipment will be certified to carry out the inspections all year round. She announced that the public transport vehicles that do not pass the test will be scrapped.

    Raising awareness for the need for the inspections is the recent death of a 28-year old, her 14-year old sister and 3-year old niece, in a vehicle that had been imported with the driver’s wheel on the opposite side and reassembled here incorrectly causing the driver and passengers to die from inhaling poisonous gases. De los Santos has said these deaths could have been avoided with the inspection that would have caught the serious defect.

    The new inspections will be available all year round and drivers will have 30 days to comply with the recommendations of the workshops. Failure to carry out the inspection and post the passed ticket is a public employee minimum wage.

    Intrant has also announced that the plan is to inspect the used vehicles upon arrival to the three authorized Dominican ports.

    Joke of the day is that Antonio Marte of Conatra said they have 11 inspection work shops ready to carry out the inspections, with support of foreign experts and that he is at Intrants service and waiting for their response on his offer.

    I would pay good money to see one an experts face when one of these clowns pulls up with his taxi with a broken windshield and one working headlight.

    Pardon my skepticism.
    I just cannot imagine vehicle inspections having the effect of removing the innumerable junk vehicles on the highway.
    How about motos, no title, no lights and no plates?
    This just seems like more than the DR is able to accomplish. Be nice if it works.

    For most of them fixing the problems would cost more than the vehicle.

    Low or interest free loans to buy already inspected 2010 or newer cars with inspections already carried out. Those that don't want to participate can buy their own cars but all junkers off the road.

    I always thought the junk cars were the problem in SD, but it’s solely the driver. We have a Sonata plague now and since they are bigger but the drivers are just as bad, it’s worse.
