More than 123,000 vehicles ended 2019 without the RTV

2019 ended with an extremely high number of vehicles without its current Vehicular Technical Inspection (VTI). From all of those who had to carry out this inspection in that year, 123,174 did not do so according to the cut as of December 31st.

Although the figure is very similar to last year, it is still worrying that such a high portion of the vehicular park will continue to breach this regulation and it means a latent risk on national roads.

It’s a trend we can’t normalize. It is very common that those with RTV also have other irregularities with the marchamo or driver’s license. It’s a part of the population that irresponsibly ignores these and other rules and they put us at risk every day“, said Jennifer Hidalgo, Deputy Communications Manager at Riteve.
