Color of Motorcycle Vests Changed, Compliance Delayed to June 9th

The government again amended the provisions of Acuerdo Gubernativo 105-2009, has acceded to demands, and "de-authorized" the use of yellow vests by motorcyclists. Although the color has not yet been decided, it will not be yellow. The deadline for compliance has been extended until June 9th.

However, the Q1,000 fine for riding double on a motorcycle remains in force in the Guatemala City region and enforcement begins on Friday.

Nery Morales, spokesman for the Ministerio de Gobernación said "to avoid confrontations and leave anyone offended by the color, it was decided that a change will be announced when a consensus is reached among all concerned."
