I had to renew my driving license in February and went in and paid the year's car tax in full at the same time. The kiosks for payment had not opened yet so you had to do it in the municipality's Dirección de Tránsito. I always pay in early March anyway but so glad I got it done in February. People were counting on it being delayed and this will have caught people out at a time when they may be worrying about food on the table not car tax.

well thousands of people are rushing to pay anyway, all standing in line, because they did not hear about pinera's announcement or do not believe it.

I think they should just start the epidemiological study now. Big chance to get some real stats.

test everyone for Covid-19 that is standing in line. In 14 days do a follow-up to see how it spread. In 3-4 week, do a hospitalization and body count rate.

Pardon my ignorance but how exactly does not paying a tax affect an insurance policy? They are 2 separate things and normally to be able to pay the car tax, first you have to have the insurance paid for the next year, so..........is there something I'm missing? If one already paid for the insurance why would it become void?

Most insurance policies have a "burn you" clause (my term), that you must have all your documents up to date on the car on the day you get in an accident. It is a little escape hatch for the insurance companies to have an excuse to not pay.

It is like the legal alcohol limit to drive, although now low in Chile, would still allow most people to say drink a beer at lunch and legally drive. If they got in an accident, the police would test them, they would not be charged with drinking and driving but it would register.

However, most insurance policies have a clause that says if you have any detectable amount of alcohol in your system, the insurance is void. How many people driving around Chile effectively have no insurance, after lunch, or early in the morning because they have a legal amount of alcohol, but a detectable amount that would void their insurance?

Point is. they are private contracts, and they can pretty much include anything they want.

o.k., the senate approved the changes to the law.

I am still leaning towards don't test it, pay your taxes on your car.

Again, Chile's beurocracy is very fragile. Best not to mess with it.
