SAN JUAN – As part of the initiatives to guide the Island’s commercial vehicle operators, the Transportation and Other Public Services Bureau (NTSP) recalled on Wednesday that they continue to hold the Commercial Vehicle Safety Fairs throughout the Island.
“This Friday, April 9, from 7:00 in the morning to 6:00 in the afternoon, we will be at the Roberto Clemente Walker Coliseum in Carolina. Our north continues to be to guide operators on the applicable state and federal regulations, in order to reduce the risks of accidents in commercial transportation. Likewise, we will use the servicarro method to assist those concessionaires who do not yet have and need to acquire their USDOT number, create their identification in online renewals, in addition to other administrative services “, said engineer Jaime Lafuente, president of the NTSP in written communication .
“Certainly the fairs already held have been extremely successful, in this third edition we will also focus on conducting safety inspections of commercial vehicles. It is important to emphasize that, after the mechanical failures found in the vehicles, we will NOT issue fines, since our main interest is to ensure the safety of all ”, explained the president of the NTSP.
Like the fairs already held in San Juan and Guaynabo, the main call is for school bus drivers, due to the return to face-to-face classes.
The inspections will focus on the mechanical operation of the vehicles.
Finally, it was reported that the fair will be held soon in the municipalities of Arecibo, Mayagüez, Ponce and Humacao.
