Scoring: from parking badly to using the cell phone, the offenses that subtract points in CABA but not at the national level
the system scoring sets the removes points from the National Driver’s License for the traffic violations committed, a modality that ceased to be jurisdictional to affect the whole country since May 6 last. Through decree 242/2022 issued by the National Ministry of Transportation, a term of 60 business days for each district to implement this system.
Now, as the Ministry explained at the time to THE NATION, membership does depend on each jurisdiction. This means that the provinces will be able to adopt the regulations established by decree or draw your own. A specific case is what was decided by the Government of the City of Buenos Aires, which confirmed to this medium that will not adhere to the national scoring due to the validity of its own.
With this on the table, there are the differences. The opinion of the Ministry contemplates general guidelines; common infractions that subtract points in the score. In the case of CABA, the spectrum is much broader and there are more fouls that lower points.
In case you reach zero Points, the license is suspended for 60 days and then reset automatically 10 points. If you want, every two years you can take a road safety course to recover four bonus points and from the second Coming To Zero, suspensions last longer.
In this case, the ways of recovering the lost score also change. As at the national level, the license is suspended for 60 days when it reaches zero for the first time and the disqualification increases progressively as the driver is left without scoring on more occasions. However, the Government of Buenos Aires requires the completion of a road education course to recover the ten points and “every three years, the removal of points is without effect as long as, during that period, the driver has not reached zero points”, they define from the GCBA official website.
