The National Federation of Dominican Transportation (Fenatrado) threatened an indefinite work stoppage beginning Tuesday, May 7, to protest rising fuel prices as well as a resolution related to tire regulations. The stoppage is expected to begin at 06:00 (local time); disruptions to the distribution of goods and commodities, such as fuel, are possible for the duration of the strike.
Associated demonstrations and transportation disruptions remain possible nationwide amid a heightened security presence, particularly if the strike proceeds as planned.
The National Institute of Traffic and Land Transportation (INTRANT) issued a resolution banning worn tires and the use of tires four-years passed the date of manufacture, which has been rejected by various sectors.
Individuals in the Dominican Republic are advised to monitor developments to the situation and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
