Multi-vehicle crash on Sunday presses need for overhaul of traffic management in the Dominican Republic

Then on Sunday, 6 August, two consecutive crashes on Las Americas Expressway evidenced once again the need for major improvements in drivers’ education and compliance with traffic rules in the Dominican Republic.
