The measure, promoted by the Ministry of Transport of the Nation, through the National Road Safety Agency, was made official with the publication in the Official Gazette of decree 242/2022 and its central purpose is to generate a new road awareness that promotes the citizen and collective responsibility to all Argentines.

In this sense, the new national scoring system grants a base of 20 points to each male and female driver who has a National Driver’s License and as a consequence of committing infractions, points are deducted until disqualification is reached. The first suspension to drive, produced by the accumulation or reiteration of infractions, will be 60 days.
