PAY YOUR CAR TAX NOW, or your insurance is void, THE GOVERNMENT SCREWED-UP!!!!!

PAY YOUR PERMISIO DE CIRCULATION!!!!!

This news just broke, and we are looking in to it more; but, as far as we can tell at this point it is true.

o.k., the frigen government sent a half baked law to Congress, for the emergency.

It was intended to extend automatically all permission de circulation in the country, so people did not have to pay in the middle of the pandemic, quarantines, providing for some economic relief.

well, guess what?

It made it through Congress and it seems no one read it.

most importantly, it voids all third party insurance in the country. If you get in an accident, your insurance will not work, if you do not pay your permission de circulation by tomorrow.

It also eliminates your right to make two payments

It also does not eliminate the penalties for being late.

Thank pinera, but no thanks.

In other words, anyone that did not pay (most of the country), they have no car insurance as of tomorrow if they hit you.

On the bright side, that might really get everyone off the street.

The screw-up is pretty simple.

They should have moved the due date, rather than simply extended the payment date.

I should be surprised, given how much of a screw up this is. But I have interacted with bureaucracy in Chile. 😁

perhaps I am just jaded by years of dealing with Chilean beucracy for a living, but generally it is a 100% red flag whenever they try to do something in hurry. definitely, something in the existing beucracy is going to break.

Thus, my oposition to the new constitution. I am all for a new constitution, just not the way they orginally rushed to do it.

perhaps, after cooling-off period and a pandemic, by October everyone will be a little less in a rush to mess with it.

Aha I didn’t realise online payment could be different in every municipality. My son paid online last week, the car is in Valdivia, the permiso de circulación is in the name of some previous owner (not the last one either) in Los Angeles. Apparently the permiso is tied to the car and not any particular person so it’s legal and sometimes Chile’s screwups cancel each other out 😬

Ok so to put things bluntly, every municipal webpage will be down in Chile tomorrow? And there will be a coronavirus party in front of every town hall.

It’s just more random thrashing around from el Pillo Piñera & Co.

By the way, this is a bit off topic on this thread but you can expect a cluster of coronavirus infections in Valdivia. First of all, 2 infected staff members at a health centre were diagnosed, no panic, only two they had no contact with the public and anyway only children were being attended to. Next day,(Yesterday, Sunday) oops 11 staff diagnosed, no mention any more of contact with the public. Someone I know had driven past the clinic last week and had seen senior citizens waiting in line for their flu vaccinations. Not kids, pensioners. This is not going to end well.
