That the average age of the Argentine motor park has such an antiquity that it negatively affects road safety and environmental protection.
That the National State through Law 24.449 and regulations regulated the use of the public road in relation to the movement of persons, animals and land vehicles.
That the regulations of the said Law established the requirements for vehicle safety, environmental pollution control, uniform road signaling devices and other provisions that make the general system of vehicle traffic.
That to control compliance with such requirements a vehicle technical inspection system was implemented that will determine which vehicles will be in a position to circulate through the public road.
That the favourable effect obtained by the Automotive Regime established by Decree No. 2677/91 and its modifiers, in terms of both the decrease in the average age of the automotive park and the modernization of the models, should be added mechanisms that combine the requirements of safety and protection of the environment with the possibility of access to a vehicle that meets the existing regulations, to those vehicles owned by individuals and legal entities that are not subject to the minimum requirements of freedom of movement.
That in the face of the need to reverse the aforementioned problems, which gradually become more burdensome, there must be a common effort on the part of the National State, as well as the entire Private Sector directly related to the problem, together with all individuals who constitute potential beneficiaries of the measures to be implemented.
That in several countries, experiences have been carried out for the modernization of the motor park with positive effects on road safety and the environmental environment, promoting the quality of life of all the inhabitants, which must be contemplated when implementing similar mechanisms in our country.
That the Directorate-General for Legal Affairs of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and PUBLICOS has taken the intervention that belongs to him.
