Drivers of student transport and special services must have the Stop sign of 40cm high

It will not be allowed to put two signs of 20cm. There will only be an exception in case it does not fit.

The Consejo de Seguridad Vial (Cosevi) points out that changes in the Stop sign of the Student Transport and Special Services will not be allowed during the Vehicle Technical Inspection starting this July 1st of the current year.

The law indicates that every vehicle that gives this service needs to have a high hexagonal sign of 40cm of diameter in the back.

In 2003, Riteve asked Cosevi a question since these dimensions do not fit in some vehicles because of their natural structure. After this consultation, there is a possibility of panting signs of 20cm of diameter instead of 40cm. However; this week, Cosevi singled out that this alternative applies only to those vehicles that cannot have another sign painted because of its dimensions. In any other cases, the law must be obeyed as it is.

“As a summary, all these vehicles had the two options to choose, but they must have sings of 40cm of diameter starting this July 1st with the exception of those that definitely cannot have them because of space. Only in those cases the sings of 20cm of diameter will be accepted,” explained Jennifer Hidalgo.

The Student Transport vehicles will have two inspections a year. Currently, automobiles with license plates ending in 6 have to do their official vehicular inspection. In July, the public transport with license plates ending in 1 and 6 will have their second RTV of this year and automobiles with license plates ending in 7 will have their corresponding inspection.
