Nah, driving is ok. 

I'll happily pay a few hundred pesos (or a lil more) rather than the price of a taxi any day.

This guy got pulled over in IN THE BACK OF AN UBER 😂. They ran his pockets and told him to give them 500 pesos.

So, driving or not, moral of the story is to carry smaller bills lol
We all 'monger' different *shrug*

I agree ☝🏽



And just for the reality of it, We talking bout $10 fuckin bucks on a hustle bc they broke AF and exercising a lil muscle, y’all do wild hooting bout the “Policia” and Amet or whatever for $10.

I’d rather they ask , I’d rather stateside police ask, but nahhhh .....you gotta go to court 1-2X miss work, rearrange ya whole shit All for $73

We got stopped leaving classicos 3:XX sauced 8 deep in a crv...
I just gave the shorty in the front a fresh $20 n said give it to him , he dipped ......no dialogue, and he only noticed 6/8 passengers

All in All Fuck the 👮🏻‍♀️, but don’t hold ya night up over $5/10/20

What if I rent a car and hit one of those crazy moto dudes and he gets hurt? If it's his fault, they will just let me leave, right?

Nope. It's your fault. Bigger pockets will always be at fault. Drive slowly, cautiously and yield the right of way...even at the expense of time.
...I'm usually wrong...but that sh!t was great!

You hit someone there and your life is basically fucked.

Doesn't matter if it was your fault or not you will very likely go to jail until it all get's sorted out and it's going to cost you a pretty penny to get yourself out of trouble

Renting in the DR is no big deal but if you get into an accident it becomes a huge deal immediately.

If you get into an accident where no one is hurt best to get out of there before the policia shows up.

The risk is real for those that chose to drive in the DR no matter what some may say just make sure you totally understand the risk before getting behind the wheel there

If you are going to drive in the DR always keep 10,000 to 15,000 pesos on you. To answer your question, if you hit one of the moto dudes and he suffers some cuts and scratches, then you should apologize on the spot and offer him 10,000 pesos to take care of his injuries. It's not like the states where the police officer will come out, talk to both parties and decide who's at fault. If you hit a moto guy it is going to be your fault.

Keep pesos on you and try to settle any traffic dispute before the policia get involved. If the policia get involved, you will still end up paying the moto dude, and you'll likely have to bribe the cops as well.

Welcome to the DR.

Don't get TOO discouraged though.  I used to didn't get a car, but now i always get one, because i'm always going back and forth between Sosua, Puerto Plata, and Cabarete throughout the duration of my trips.  And it's allowed me to venture out and see different things (clubs/bars/sporting events/monuments/restaurants/etc) without the hassle of paying for a taxi each time.  And it gets easier each time.  And i tell you, it makes things a helluva lot more convenient.

TomBrady. Good job. Cancel that shit. I use to drive over there never got into anything but I was stopped broad day light and received a ticket for no seat belt. Yeah driving is more convenient over there with a high risk tag mark. Ill pay my way around in taxis for what its worth.

@philly; what did the ticket cost you? I paid the cop 500 pesos on the spot for the same violation.

They didnt ask me for nothing. They looked at my ID wrote a ticket. I told them I didnt have time to be BSn We was leaving that same day. They wrote a tidket and let me go. I told the owner of the car she said she will handle it and dont worry. That was that
