Even the head of the motorcyclists union says there needs to be stricter controls:
The president of the National Federation of Motoconchistas (Fenamoto), Óscar Almánzar, favors that the authorities apply a strong hand against motorcyclists who violate the Traffic Law and who impose chaos on the streets of the Dominican Republic.
Almánzar is aware that motorcyclists commit a lot of imprudence and flagrantly violate Law 63-17, on Mobility, Land Transportation, Transit and Road Safety and he attributed it to a lack of education.
Faced with this situation, he believes that there is a lot to be done and a lot of work to be coordinated with all the institutions that intervene in the sector, in order to improve things.
"The authorities have to be rigorous in the application of the law and supervise anyone who commits an infraction, because it seems that this is the only way to submit to the rules," said Almánzar, when reacting to a series of work carried out by N Digital regarding the chaos that they impose with motorized ones.

The president of Fenamoto maintained that the imprudence of motorcyclists in the streets is a matter of debate and that for some time a structural solution has been sought at the negotiation table, where representatives of the Ministry of the Interior and Police, the General Directorate of Security participate of Transit and Land Transport (Digesset), the National Institute of Land Transport (Intrant), the National Police, the General Directorates of Customs and Internal Revenue, motorcycle importers and distributors.
He said that coordinated work is required between rules, application and regulations issued by Intran and the consequent inspections by the Digesett to impose order on the roads.
"There is no point in having rules, if there are no inspections so that there is respect," Almánzar said.
Fenamoto has around 40,000 affiliates in 27 provinces of the country and its members, dedicated to motoconcho, are required to wear a protective helmet, with a unique identification plate, which must be displayed on the back of the protective helmets and retroreflective vests.
But the members of Fenamoto barely represent 1.3% of the three million 63 thousand 704 motorcycles that the DGII has registered, since motorcycles represent 56.1% of the DR vehicle fleet.
One detail is that the motorcyclists who belong to other lines are not as well organized as they are; those for private use, messengers, those on digital platforms, delivery and grocery delivery.
. Information shows that for the third week of June there would be a great meeting with the authorities of the motorcycle sector, importers and distributors in order to propose solutions to the chaos that prevails in the streets.
For such purposes, a series of initiatives tending to establish order in the conduction of motorcyclist traffic are studied.
DGA will participate in the meeting, in relation to engine imports; DGII regarding registries, importing things, the Intrant, Digesett and PN regarding regulatory initiatives and inspections.
