Launched the “Operativo Verano 2019" road safety, which will feature drones and digital control

Radars, drones and digital devices that allow instant information about drivers and vehicles were incorporated by the Ministry of Transport into its Summer 2019 operation.

The operation, which will run until February, is carried out by the National Road Safety Agency (ANSV) and the National Transport Regulation Commission (CNRT), in conjunction with the National Gendarmerie, Prefecture, provincial road safety agencies, road police and local traffic directorates.

In order to ensure safe movement for those traveling this summer season, ANSV and CNRT will have more than 650 supervisors and around 250 mobile phones, which will be deployed in 264 tourist and strategic points in the national territory.

“This year we are making a strong commitment to digitization to facilitate controls, an example of this is the insurance policy that people will be able to carry on their mobile,” said Guillermo Dietrich, Minister of Transport of the Nation.

“Another differential in this operation is that we end with the legal vacuum for the regulation of ATVs, a debt outstanding for decades,” he added.

“We are going to be strengthening controls on routes, cities and terminals but awareness is also important; Road Safety is not only a State task, it is built together,” he concluded, according to a statement.

Breathalyzer checks will be carried out in mobile operations for private vehicles and verified that they have the mandatory documentation.

In addition, traffic agents will carry out preventive patrols and controls with state-of-the-art mobile radars to prevent speeding accidents.

The new technology used in the renovation of radars is supported by the implementation of wireless links, fiber optic and control center adaptation and server room, which ensure the reception of violations in real time and allow the operation of equipment 24 hours a day 365 days a year.

For its part, the CNRT will carry out the tasks of monitoring long-distance microphones and tourism throughout the country, with the incorporation of electronic devices (PDAs).

“With the incorporation of the PDA system, the controls will be 100% digital, which will reduce the monitoring time from 20 to 8 minutes,” said the agency through a statement.

As in the rest of the year, the drivers are tested for breathalyser, and their professional leave and compulsory rest are monitored.

As for ATVs, this summer the new traffic regulations will be implemented to control the use of these vehicles that will have to respect the safe traffic areas determined and marked by each municipality.

In Pinamar, Partido de la Costa, Villa Gesell, Miramar, Necochea and Monte Hermoso there will be drones, control agents and mobiles that will control their correct circulation.

With Operativo Verano 2019 it is expected to double the 1,151,581 controls carried out last year.
