A motorcyclist from Toledo, in western Paraná, was surprised to receive a fine of R$195,23 for not wearing a seat belt while driving his vehicle. According to the information, the incident occurred on the MG-184 highway, in the municipality of Alterosa, in the south of Minas Gerais.

As you can see, the peculiarity of the situation is because motorcycles do not have seat belts.

Furthermore, the owner explains that neither the motorcycle nor he were at the place where the alleged infraction was committed – the distance between Toledo and Alterosa is more than a thousand kilometers.

In an interview with the TNOnline portal, Dileta Simonatto, wife of Armando Simonatto, the man who received the fine, explained that the notification was sent by the Department of Highways of the State of Minas Gerais (DER-MG).

The document states that in addition to the fine, the husband had also gained five points on his National Driver's License (CNH).

Still according to her, as soon as she saw the letter from DER-MG, the feeling was one of strangeness and, later, of disbelief. “When I saw the notification, I didn’t believe it,” she confessed.

“The family almost doubted me when I told them about the fine. As I am a good-natured person, I started laughing. But now we need to resolve this situation,” said the woman.

According to Dileta, his family lives in the district of Concórdia do Oeste and the motorcycle It is only used for short journeys.

“My husband uses the motorcycle to travel four kilometers a day, only during the week. He goes to and from work, totaling two kilometers each way. Since 2018, the motorcycle has never left the community”, he concluded.

Pay attention to your seat belt

Despite the inconsistency of the fine, Dileta used the interview to highlight the importance of wearing a seat belt when in the car. In this sense, she recalled a recent affair with her husband.

According to the woman, she and her husband were taking a short trip and her husband was in the passenger seat. At the time, he suggested that he would not need to wear a seat belt, but Dileta reports that he stopped the vehicle and insisted that he wear the seat belt before proceeding.

The family is now seeking to resolve the error with DER-MG, highlighting the impossibility of the infraction, in a case that serves as a warning for possible failures in the traffic notification system.
