As of 1pm on the last day of the year, all vehicles need to display the 2015 stickers. Car owners have had more than three months to secure the sticker known as the ‘marbete.’ As of the 31st, a RD$600 fine needs to be paid for renewal and only the DGII offices will be selling the document starting on the next working day, Tuesday 6 January 2015. Metropolitan Transport Authority agents are under orders to seize any vehicle using the roads without the permit. As of Friday, 26 December 2014, only 60% of vehicle owners had renewed the permit that costs on average RD$1,200.
AMET is also warning that it will seize motorcycles from motorcyclists driving without helmets and correct documentation.
