Digesett and Fenamoto decide to speed up the delivery of impounded motorcycles
Press conference at Digesett,
The Director General of Transit Safety and Land Transportation (DIGESETT) Brigadier General Ramón Antonio Guzmán Peralta and the National Federation of Motorcyclists (FENAMOTO) decided to organize the process of documentation, reception and delivery of motorbikes that have been formerly retained for a traffic infraction.
Oscar Almánzar, president of FENAMOTO highlighted the commitment shown by the DIGESETT, since what was in place was a real mess and a mafia.
In a joint press conference at the Vehicle Retention Center, known as “El canódromo”, General Guzmán Peralta showed the advances in this place, for the reception of documents, the organization and the delivery of the motorcycles.
He also showed the preparation of a waiting area for the owners of the motorcycles to wait in a dignified manner for the delivery while the documentation for the final delivery is being processed, purified and verified.
Oscar Almanzar, president of FENAMOTO, informed that there were many complaints from its affiliates about the slowness in the delivery of the motorbikes to their owners once they were taken to the holding posts.
He appreciated that General Guzmán Peralta listened to the complaints about the irregularities being committed and decided to go with FENAMOTO to the old dog track to put an end to unhealthy practices once and for all.
Wondering… if any part of the process of delivery involves getting the motorbikes registered, insured, and roadworthy? Is it ripe to be abused by the authorities? Who is watching over them? Can the authorities in charge of this operation be tempted to fabricate procedures for owners to rescue their motos? There is no media publishing of what moto owners have to do or need to obtain their motorbikes.
i have a good remedy for this problem. stop taking these motor cycles from the owners. right a ticket, goes into the computer and the next time they are stopped take them to jail if they did not pay. also the police take these motor cycles like it is noting but it is a big deal to the owners. i personnally know that the police just take these bikes for extortion. it is the police who is the problem.
Writing a ticket does nothing because in many instances it will be torn up and ignored because the operator has no documents. Impounding the bikes forces the operators to pay all penalty and documentation fees to obtain their motos.
