He revealed that Haitians come to buy gasoline, which they pay at an overprice, generating an avalanche of motorcycles, buses, vehicles of all types without any protocol.
He mentioned that the Dominican authorities should pay attention to the current overpopulation of vehicles and establish order at the borders so that the situation does not get out of control.
