Obsolete and lagging behind technology, but nevertheless, it is the ‘bible’ of the traffic agents, a compendium of about 170 articles from which it is very difficult to escape, because there are the twists and turns of interpretation. For the police the matter is clear, for drivers not so much. That is why almost always, or always, the citizen has no other choice but to pay the fines, the interpretation of the norm is the daily bread and hence the stumbling blocks. Let’s see.

Article 190 of the Transit Law states: “Transfer of offending vehicles to the depot. Thirty days after the fine has been imposed and has not been paid, the transit authority will request the transfer of the offending vehicle to the corresponding deposit, unless the matter is under administrative management”.
