Santo Domingo.- The Metropolitan Transit Authority (Amet) on Thursday said it has started using drones to help in it daily work to expedite traffic in the heard of Santo Domingo known as the Central Polygon , especially during peak hours.

Amet said the devices can detect various traffic problems and correct the flow on each major artery.

In a statement, Amet said images captured by drones during tests are being sent to its operations center, where technicians immediately alert traffic supervisors to take appropriate measures. “It has also been possible to identify drivers who block intersections, parked on sidewalks and commit other violations of traffic Law 241."

There is chaos in the city at all locations at all times.

They, the drones, will have the same effect as the uniforms, none.

This is a nice new gadget for them to spend more time playing more games rather then on their cellulars, what a waist of resources, what is there to see from the air? It's jammed everywhere how is the drone would likely become a useful tool, there was an article yesterday about DR is one of the most STAGNATED countries in the world , and here is one of the proofs do nothing useless AMET has a new toy, you can see them in almost every major intersections, streets, no planning just utter chaos making it even worst by them just standing still absolutely doing nothing....

Having to deal with the traffic chaos in SD on a regular basis , I think by far the greatest problem is the hoplessnessof the female AMET officers. They create queues of cars that traffic lights do not . AMET already has walkie talkies along the routes to tell AMET officers along the road if there is a particular build up and I cannot believe that drones will help one bit .

Please elaborate, who are the Tercelli brothers and the Eliots? I would like to learn more about who are the scammers and publicly denounce them.
