Santo Domingo.- The Dominican Telecom Institute (Indotel) on Monday assigned two new frequencies to the Public Works Ministry, including "special antennas to be used to automate the toll system, so that motorists don't have to stop to pay because the vehicle will have a prepaid chip that will communicate with the control cabin and they can pass through those plazas quickly.

Upon making the announcement, Indotel president José Del Castillo said a group of frequencies that his agency had requested for the RedVial (roadside assistance network) were also assigned, in order "to facilitate the communication work of the Military and Police Commission and other agencies of Public Works."

Del Castillo offered the information during the ceremony to receive 500 computers for Public Works to modernize through the use of digital technology.

I wonder if they actually have 500 people who can use a computer.

Most likely half of these computers will end up disappearing and being sold. Any adverts for cheap computers will probably be some of them.

What a great idea! They can sell stickers you put on the car windshield, and you can top off the sticker funds with your credit card by phone.

I suggest they call it "Paso Rapido"

Oh wait, they already have that system. For like 6-8 years already.
