When does the controversial measure of the DGT come into operation?

In any case, the idea of ​​Tránsit will continue and if nothing prevents it, by 2026 all vehicles must be connected to the platform. It has been under study for several years, specifically since 2017, but it was now when they were more willing to approve it.

What is unknown is whether this measure will also affect electric scooters. This type of vehicle is more and more present on our streets and it is not that it has a traffic regulation. A few days ago it was known that they would be forced to take out compulsory insurance to move.

But the registration will also mean that there is a follow-up on the occupants of the cars. On the portal all disc they point out that "they could monitor the speed at which we drive and even how many people are in the car".

They have the ability to monitor our every move on a daily basis, but they have already warned that they won't. They will respect the privacy of the drivers at all times and focus only on the control of the tracks.

The intention is for this proposal to be implemented in Spain at the end of 2026. Therefore, over time we will learn more details about this approach that generates so much uncertainty. There is a lot of ignorance on the part of the drivers.

Will it affect electric scooters?

Although scooters must comply with a number of road rules, they are most likely not included in this regulation. There will be no need to register them. In any case, this possibility could not be ruled out if its use continues to grow so much in cities.
