PRESENTATION report the State of Senegal has made the improvement of urban mobility a major axis of its policy of urban development in the agglomeration of Dakar. Indeed, Dakar has become a real metropolis, and knows very urbanised characterized by the emergence of spontaneous habitat, outside any form of urban planning.

Indeed, each passenger of this vehicle type, whose commercial speed is limited to 60 km/h, has a safety belt.
In light of all the foregoing, the derogation granted by the Highway Code to a category of vehicles of transit of persons (fast cars) which was intended for the carriage of goods and whose renewal is underway, could be given to this new type of vehicle.
