The entities that joined forces to carry out the traffic organization program are the Ministry of Tourism, the mayor’s office, the General Directorate of Transit and Land Transportation (Digesett) and the National Institute of Transit and Land Transportation (Intrant).
In this order, the director of Digesett, Brigadier General Ramón Antonio Guzmán Peralta, ordered the dispatch of new agents, tow trucks, motors and cones.
Guzman Peralta said that Digesett and Intrant technicians will meet with representatives of the community, colleges, schools, hoteliers and the media to offer them talks on road education and traffic organization, accident prevention and other topics.
