The person in charge also made it known that, according to Presidential Decree no. 167/10 of 3 August, the regulations for this type of centers were approved, aiming to "regulate the precepts of the activities".

The spokesperson for the activity, chief superintendent Adriano do Rosário, informed that, according to article 168 of the Highway Code, "the periodic inspection activity will now be carried out by private companies, since article 114.° of the same code supports the obligation for everyone to be subject to inspection, meaning that failure to comply constitutes the crime of violating the Highway Code", adds the note.
