In February there were 29,619 registered enrollments, and of those 23,727 went into the hands of taxpayers. While in March and April a total of 59,000 cars were registered. Meanwhile, during the month of May 23 out of every 100 people had not fulfilled their obligation to pay their road tax. For the month of June the Municipality ordered the production of 29,201 license plates, and figures for July amounted to 28,049, which are about to be delivered to the various municipal offices.

Editor's Comment: Great money making opportunity here. If there are more than 55,000 vehicles driving around Panama City with expired license plates then the National Police should start issuing tickets (and not asking for bribes to let people go). I think the ticket for an expired plate is like $50 bucks, so this could raise $2.75 million dollars in fines.
