Conflicts between the military and transit agents are frequent


The recent discussion between a general of the #Armed #Forces and two agents of the #General #Directorate of #Traffic #Safety and #Land #Transport (#Digesett), once again puts on the table the past conflicts between members of both institutions due to traffic problems. “There is no rank that is above the law,” said #President #Luis #Abinader yesterday and precisely that phrase is applicable to what happened two days ago with #General #José #Manuel #Frías #Rodríguez. The military man rebuked two #Digesett agents to make him reverence for the mark he shows, while they tried to control his vehicle for violating the #Traffic #Law, as it was parked on the #National #District bike lane. #Counting this event, journalistic records indicate that during this year 2020 at least four incidents have occurred between members of the two institutions mentioned above.

#Recent altercation The most recent altercation had taken place on #December 15, when a sergeant from the #Dominican #Republic #Air #Force (FARD) attacked a #Digesett agent when he tried to fine him. The incident occurred on #Abraham #Lincoln #Avenue at the corner of #Gustavo #Mejía #Ricart and was known by a video broadcast through social networks, where it is observed when the driver stops in the middle of the avenue, slaps the agent, an action that resulted in which both took out their firearms, but then the driver got into his vehicle and tried to escape from the scene. A little less than two months earlier, on #October 20, a video broadcast on social networks also revealed a defiant and arrogant attitude of the retired general of the #Armed #Forces, #Flavio #Jesús #Soto #Jiménez, who verbally attacked a private who requested him your documents for committing a traffic violation. #Much of the conversation was plagued by outbursts from the retired general to the agent, to whom he refused to hand over his documents, despite having committed a traffic violation, when he parked his vehicle on a sidewalk.

#Discussion in the middle of the road #While on #June 1, according to journalistic records, a confusing traffic incident occurred between several soldiers and a traffic officer, after passers-by witnessed a discussion for the #Digesett to give preferential passage to a road. #Although there were never official versions of the event, witnesses to the event indicated that around 10:00 in the morning a group of “guards” tried to get the #Digesett to give preferential passage to a specific road, which generated a discussion and a ” struggle ”between the members of both institutions.

The “revenge” #In 2017, journalistic records date an alleged “revenge” that members of the military were planning to “avenge comrades in arms” who had allegedly been mistreated by an agent of the then #Metropolitan #Transportation #Authority (AMET) .

#It is remembered when some media made emphasis of an alleged meeting on #April 11, 2017 at kilometer 9 of the #Duarte #Highway, where the military began to plan a “revenge” against agents of the then AMET, while they were dressed as civilians. on the streets. #Days earlier, a video broadcast showed AMET agents throwing a FARD soldier to the ground to arrest him. The AMET spokesperson at the time explained that the conflict was caused by a “resistance” of the detainee, who was preparing to cross the #Las #Américas tunnel without a protective helmet or documents.
