The General Circulation Regulation establishes that "bicycles, in addition, will be equipped with reflective elements" and that "when the use of lighting is mandatory, bicycle drivers will also carry some reflective vest that allows drivers and others users distinguish them at a distance of 150 meters, if they circulate by interurban route ", the Feral Police has recalled in a note.

The discussion of safety in the enclosure

The FPV deputy Paula Penance recalled that "we have discussed this issue a lot and in depth" and affirmed, "With this regulation, motorcycle vehicle users without protection vest are stigmatized; It has to do with campaigning this project in favor of the 'fight against motorcycles'."

"They are willing to advance with the stigmatization only to campaign, but do not take into account. This project has many points that do not contribute to citizen security," he said, and remarked "motorcycle drivers finally end up exposed to a situation much higher risk, because nobody goes out to steal with his own motorcycle. Then the time of the robbery will last even longer since the victim will have to take off his vest to give it to the thief.”

In turn, the legislator of Common Good Gustavo Vera explained, "this is a smokescreen, there is no statistic that would contribute to this type of regulations" and added "they come to talk about citizen security when they do not even have regulations. The Security Law that we voted for, and they want to put refractory safety vest on people who drive motorcycles."

In addition, he indicated that "this is a circus and a bullfight, have 2 heads of the City Police involved in court cases and want to violate the rights of our citizens." The deputy of Suma Marcelo stressed, "We are very concerned about the general security situation of our City, so we have discussed with vehemence about this project within our own block.” In addition, indicated, "we will accompany this project and we are based on the fact that we have always been a constructive opposition that is why we are willing to vote laws that protect our own security.”

On this same line, Gorman said, "7 years ago this Legislature approved a law almost identical to the one we are currently dealing with" and asked, "how many laws do we have to sanction so that they are enforced?”
In turn, the FIT legislator Laura Maroni considered that "this law does not resolve the issue of insecurity, but on the contrary, subjects motorcycle users to a situation of vulnerability" and stated, "they are trying to make a stigmatizing speech towards the motor, their rights are being violated.” In addition, he said that with this regulation "they are not taking into account that a refractory vest is easier to forge and will lead to the creation of twin reflective vests".

For its part, the president of the Parodist Bloc, Maria Rosa Moines, said that the legislation does not provide any information on whether or not there have increased cases of assaults on motorcycles, among other issues. In turn, he insisted, "we do not agree with people having to be identified with the number of the patent given that they are not an object, so it would not be pertinent for this to happen.”
