Guns, pets banned at inspection stations

Motorists will have to leave Bruno elsewhere and surrender their pistol when they bring a vehicle for inspection, according to new rules issued Thursday by the Consejo de Seguridad Vial.

The consejo said that the rules fill a void and the purpose is to make sure that attendants at the vehicle inspection stations are not intimidated, menaced or facing aggression.

The consejo said that if any weapon is spotted anywhere in the vehicle, attendants will call police. The rules also cover all types of animals instead of just well-dentured German shepherds. Kids are OK, but they need to be in a safety seat if they are required by law to be in one due to age.
