“When a traffic officer stops a person for a violation of the Traffic Law, he can at once find out if that person has committed an offense with an illegal weapon or if he has had some type of incident, such as robbery,” said legislator Gustavo Viales Villegas

The legislator assured that the information will remain confidential and of exclusive use of the police authorities of the country.
