The images are tremendous: a truck opens to pass a truck on a curve without caring that a car was coming from the other side, which had to
jump onto the shoulder to avoid a head-on collision
and was about to overturn.
This mixture of recklessness that miraculously did not end in tragedy happened last week on Route 51, near Coronel Pringles, and it went viral thanks to the fact that a couple who came in another vehicle recorded what happened and sent it to "El Orden, un the middle of that city. ”The newspaper uploaded it to its networks and found Pablo Martínez Carignano, Director of the National Road Safety Agency, dependent on the Ministry of Transportation of the Nation.

This Monday, the body that depends on the Ministry of Transportation of the Nation sent to the Municipality of Bahía Blanca the request for the
immediate suspension of the
that almost generates a tragedy, as well as his psychic reevaluation to see if he is fit to continue having your registration.
“The video leaves no doubt: the driver of the truck passed in a prohibited place and created a huge risk for himself and other people.
We are not regretting deaths because the motorist in front had enough reflexes to swerve and avoid a frontal collision, and also the fortune of not losing stability and overturning.
Here there was a
clear episode of road violence and absolute disinterest in others
, traits that are not compatible with the drivers we need on our routes, "said Martínez Carignano.
With the patent number they found the driver of the truck
And he explained that they have already asked the road safety authorities of the province of Buenos Aires to get the offender's driver's license.
"He will also have to undergo a
thorough psychological examination
to determine if he is fit to continue driving," added the official.
The request for suspension of the driver was made from the provision 384/2020 promoted by the ANSV, which allows the provisional disqualification of the National Driving License of those drivers who present some type of alteration of their aptitude to drive and who register a serious danger to road safety.
In this way, it is avoided that people who put their own lives and that of others at risk continue to drive until a new psychophysical evaluation determines their aptitude.
Matías Defederico filmed a video while driving and uploaded it to his social networks.
Another case that ended with a driver with his license suspended was that of former soccer player Matías Defederico, who recorded himself with his cell phone while driving with his minor daughter as a passenger in the front seat and without the seat belt on.
In that case, after the management of the ANSV, they suspended his registration for 180 days after failing the psychophysical re-evaluation of fitness to drive carried out by the General Directorate of Driver Qualification of the City of Buenos Aires.
“We have always believed that the license lasts for the 4 or 5 years that appear on the card, and that nothing we do in the middle can alter that situation.
But this is a mistake.
A driver's license is a permit granted by the State for a person to drive a motor vehicle in compliance with traffic regulations and respecting others.
We must accept that driving
is not a right but a responsibility
, and that the license, as it was granted, can be withdrawn in the face of an aberration such as the one we have just seen ”, concluded Carignano.
Complaints channel for acts of road violence
From the ANSV a WhatsApp line is enabled so that citizens who witness clandestine bites, situations of road violence and / or who register a danger to road safety, can make a complaint by recording the event and sharing the video at (011) 62070590. You can also send it to the agency's social networks (@InfoSegVial) or by email to: email@example.com.
