Heavy Transport: New Deadline for Speed Control

In Guatemala, the entry into force of the speed measurement and control device, which must be installed in vehicles of 3.5 tons and 12 passengers or more, was extended for another year.

Tuesday, November 12, 2019

The regulations in Governmental Agreement 38-2019, published in April of this year, established that as of November 14 heavy transport units must carry a device that will have the function of measuring the speed at which vehicles travel, which must not exceed 80 kilometers per hour.

But, following the request of the carriers for an extension for the entry into force of the rule, saying that this is anti-technical, the authorities decided to postpone until November 14, 2020, the implementation of the agreement.

The publication in the Diario de Centroamerica explains that "... It establishes a period of one year from the effective date of this Governmental Agreement for individuals or legal entities to comply with the implementation of the Speed Limiting System in the collective transport units of passengers and cargo, otherwise it will proceed in accordance with the provisions of Article 18 of these Regulations."
