House of Representatives rejects measure that sought to give greater powers to the Police to occupy Can-Am vehicles

The House of Representatives defeated this Monday a measure by the delegation of the New Progressive Party (PNP) in the Senate that sought to expand the definition of “off-road vehicles”, contained in the Law 22 of 2000in order to include Polaris or Can-Am type cars to facilitate their occupation by the authorities.

The measure obtained 20 votes in favor, 12 against and 15 abstentions. It required the endorsement of 26 representatives.

According to the explanatory memorandum of the Senate Bill 255the Police faces problems in the handling of this type of car on public roads, since the definition of “off-road vehicles” in Traffic Law 22 has not been updated to harmonize it with the evolution of these machines in the market. The current definition, contained in Article 1,110-A, is based on the physical description of the “four tracks”, reads the measure.

“Being a structurally different vehicle (from the ‘four tracks’), the confiscations of Polaris/Can-Am type vehicles are challenged on the basis that they are not included within the definition of ‘all-terrain’ vehicles of the aforementioned Law. 22 of 2000″, the legislative piece provides.
