Duarte Highway patrol
News reports indicate that the Duarte Highway patrol in place since last week is working. The patrol offers AAA-type vehicle assistance. The government has assigned four SUVs and two helicopters to patrol the highway. The Duarte highway has been divided into four or five sections, each with 24/7 patrols. The patrols were introduced to assist drivers involved in car accidents, many of which had been vandalized after the accident, and to crack down on cargo truck robberies that had been taking place, in addition to contributing to safe driving for commuters along the 166 km stretch between Santo Domingo and Santiago. The numbers to call for any problems, as posted earlier in the DR1 Forums, are:
Between Kilometer 9 and Villa Altagracia - 809 315-6820
Between Villa Altagracia and Piedra Blanca - 809 315-6821
Between Piedra Blanca and Bonao - 809 315-6822
Between Bonao and La Vega - 809 315-6823
Between La Vega and Santiago - 809 315-6824
