196 thousand vehicles still do not have RTV

The official call for the Vehicle Technical Inspection (VTI) concluded  in  October,  it means that by now all private vehicles should have approved this year’s inspection.  However, 196  885 motor vehicles do not have such approval.

According to the license plate number of the vehicles that end in 0 are the ones that have the most lag since 43 377  of them do not have this current requirement.

This data raises great concern since all these vehicles could be driving on our roads without their owners knowing their car condition in depth, or after a serious defect had been detected in them, which prevented them from approving the inspection.

Motorcycles, Trucks and Semi trucks: They are the Kinds of Vehicles with a High Percentage of Lag in RTV

As it was announced, a total of 196.885 vehicles that should have approved the Vehicular Technical Inspection (VTI) in the official period from January to October 2019 did not.

Even though automobiles are missing the most (92.317); since they represent the 64% of the inspection park, and if we compare the pending with the approximate quantity of the size of every fleet, motorcycle drivers and the owners of trucks and semi-trucks are the ones who reach the highest percentage of lag in RTV.

According to these data, the 48% of motorcycles that should have done the VTI this year have not done it, and the same happens with the 28% of trucks and semi-trucks.

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.
