Of course they are just looking to those who can paid ,if you drive a public car ( regular transportatio)you could drive with not seat belt,talking on the phone and run the red light and will never get a ticket cause they are afraid of the sindicated drivers, as well as not light trucks at night 5 guys in a bike and so on
Driving while intoxicated in the wrong direction on a one way street
The culture in DR is to ignore traffic lights and that won’t change until they start repossessing cars and bikes of those that ignore traffic lights
In Punta Cana its a joke no respect for any rules. Just waiting for a buss load of tourists to be killed then maybe they mught do something but i doubt it. The tourist transportista vans are the worst.
