What’s interesting here is the plates are supposed to have frequency transmission capability. Basically a transponder system to help police identify vehicle owners electronically. If that’s true, and I highly doubt it, that’s a big leap for enforcement. I don’t know if any country that has the technology and uses it. Commercial trucks have sat links to track their location and progress. Military and police vehicles use similar systems. If it is true, it won’t take long for drivers to find a way around big brother’s efforts to track them.

Image recognition is now very good at recognizing number plates and runs on cheap hardware. The transponder technology for number plates is already outdated.
In the DR the new license plates can easily be enforced at the toll booths. Anyone who does not have the new number plate by a certain date must pay a fine and at some point vehicles without a transponder will no longer be able to pass.
The Abinadar administration supports the new world order. One small step of many on the way to total control over the movement of citizens.
Find out about the 15 minute cities. The license plates are considered necessary for these. Dominican politicians are not able to invent a plan of their own that would require such license plates. They simply do as they are told.

So what your saying is the political motivation for this is to ensure drivers pay the tolls. Nothing to do with enforcement of the road safety rules.

it will be just like the motorcycle Helmut number thing. They will make everyone pay for a front plate which will probably be a sticker for the windshield, heavily enforce it until they reach whatever amount they are hoping for and a couple months later push it to the side and forget about it. Money grab is all it sounds like.

No it's probably a plate that can be read at stop light cameras. Imagine the fines that would show up when you go for your marbete !

Well ! This means all the doctors and other important people will have to remove the private vanity plates from the front of their vehicles, to be replaced by government issue. Bet, the government will charge extra for them. Wonder... who will get MD 1 ??? Without a doubt, government types and their compadres will be snatching up many specialized plates for themselves, for free... maybe?

This all about making extra revenue for the government.

I think like most things it will be enforced in the capital and maybe in Santiago and Punta Cana, and Sosua, Cabarete and Las Terrenas will remain like the wild west.

Lol what happened to the rest of the country where no head/taillights, deadly emissions, missing bonnets, doors and a piece of paper in the back windshield that misspells "placa perdida"? Those rednecks have no licenses, no registration papers or marbetes 🤣🤣🤣. But you only mention Cab and Las T
