    Default AMET, new and old tickets

    sorry to open a new topic on the theme,
    no problem if a Mod wanna merge it.
    i did not find the topic where we talked the last days about traffic infraction tickets and the way they have to be paid, and the thingy with old tickets(paid and unpaid ones) and their influence on renewing car related things.

    so today i went to Banco de Reservas, their office at San Juan Plaza, and paid my latest ticket, which i received 3 weeks ago in Boca Chica for a red light violation.
    i brought the ticket issued by the AMET official and my cedula, and the RD$1.667.- pesos, which are shown as the amount to pay on the AMET website, where you can type in your cedula number, to see what you have as a collection of unpaid tickets.
    payment been easy and quick.
    the girl at the cashier explained me that i have to bring the receipt of the payment to a AMET office, so the ticket will be taken off my list.
    i did so right away, went to the AMET office in Veron, with the ticket at hand, they took care of it. the infractions are not taken off the system by the local offices directly, they just type into their computer that a certain ticket been paid and send a scan of the payment to santo domingo, where the thingy will be taken away. such may take a week before it really disappears in the computer(a significant point, which i will relate to later).

    now i also found on that AMET page a old ticket of mine as unpaid, from January 2012.
    in reality i paid the ticket 10-15 days after i received it, back in 2012, just that the cashier at the Bank did not explain me the stu necesity to bring the receipt of the payment to a AMET office, so i paid and did nothing further, under the imagination that the infraction is taken off the system automatically, as the bank types the payment into the computer.
    that is not the case, it is important to bring the payment receipt to a AMET office.

    i know i have to pay the ticket again, as i do not have the 3 1/2 years ago ticket, i don't keep receipts for that long, lol.
    no problem to pay again, but how do you pay a ticket, when you do not have a ticket at hand?
    I asked that question the cashier girl and the also the 2 guys and one girl at the AMET office.
    both gave the same answer:
    go to the AMET website, type in your cedula number, the page with your infraction shows up,
    take a screenshot with your cellphone and bring it to the bank to pay for the ticket.
    of course you can also print out the page online.
    -------------------------------------------------
    now comes the important additional stuff, which i did not hear about until a couple days ago here on DR1.
    2 things, which you can not do, if you have a unpaid ticket under your cedula's name, since a new system for that stuff been introduced by AMET some months ago.
    * you can not renew your Drivers License
    ** you can not renew thePlaca(License Plate) for a vehicle which is registered in Your name.

    the coming month/september start the yearly renewals of the Placas/License Plates for all vehicles.
    according to the AMET office it takes a week(so may we better count on serveral weeks then in reality<??, lol) before a paid for ticket disappears from the system, after the receipt for the payment been presented at a AMET office.
    my point is,
    if you ever got a ticket, check with your cedula number online, to assure that they do not show any old ticket in your name, or you do the ride to the office for Placa renewal for nothing.
    and if you have open tickets, as i have, keep in mind the time til they really disappear after payment.

    i paid the new ticket today,
    tomorrow i will ride by the bank to repay the old one, with a cellphone picture(it has to show the ticket number, descroption of infraction, date and amount to be paid), and bring the receipt of that one also to the AMET office.
    will let you know how it went and will frequently check the online page to see after what time frame they got "lost".

    Mike

    addy:
    the AMET website is on http://amet.gob.do/
    scroll down a little bit and you see on the right hand side "Consulta de Multas en Linea".
    click on it and on the upcoming page enter your cedula number, click "busca"

    One more reason to have a car in a non-driver's name, or a corporation's name.

    I have three (3) outstanding tickets and successfully renewed my driver's license five days ago.
    so far for working DR ""Systems"", lol.
    its the info i got.
    my own last license renewal been 2013, the old ticket was already "open" at that time,
    but i don't know since when they have that "running".
    i am sure we will find out quickly, in case one day it works as they say it would.
    thats not something new to us, right?
    now i wanna see if the ticket payment with the photo on the smartphone works tomorrow.
    will report back here.

    good point, lol.
    but the ticket has to be issued in the Drivers name anyways, in case of drivers license renewal, in case it works that way one day.
    PICHARDO,
    whats the set timeline for that?
    after Metro Line IV from Barahona to Cap Cana is running?
    for the Placa, yes, would not be a relation to the driver/real owner's cedula.
    but who would do such around 100 corners stuff, just to not pay a ticket?
    they still could come after you for the ticket open in your name, in whom ever's name the car is registered.
    anyways,
    in this milenium sure no system will work sooo far to such point.

    I would have had a ticket today. The AMET girl was writing it up for me parking 4 metres from a stop sign. A Dominican guy that owned the store I was shopping in tried to help me out by pointing out the six motos that were parked between me and the stop sign, but she ignored him. Then she asked me if I was American, and I said no , I'm Canadian. She gave me a smile, said her brother was in Montreal and not to park there again and walked away without giving me the ticket.
