Electric Bicycles

Started this discussion. Last reply by Floyd R. Turbo Sep 4, 2017. 15 Replies

I saw a Schwinn Izip electric bicycle parked in downtown Boquete. It had a bicycle license plate on it. Seems like a good idea. Anybody know the legalities and where to get one in Panama?Continue

They don't just impound cars here they impound you!

Yesterday I had a friend freak out because she didn't have her cedula with her. Turns out one can be taken to the police station, fined, and jailed if you don't have the right documents with you.She kept saying carcel, carcel.I expect that this would apply to everyone, expats included.Probably doesn't occur with expats as much, as there is no money in it, except for the minimal fine, unlike the car towing.See More

Should you get towed here for no vehicle insurance?

Rant has slowed down so here it is: A while ago the traffic transitos started towing for all kinds of things. No insurance is one of them. So, before Panama and the US state I came from didn't require insurance, now they both do, but in my previous state you just got a ticket. Here it is getting your vehicle out of impound, etc. (at about $500 plus). The freedom for me to self insure was denied, where for decades not the case.I wanted to respond on the CL forum to this comment by the moderator…See More

Canadian Diaspora

According to a Wikipedia article of the above name, Canadians are bailing out of Canada at over 5x the rate of US expats bailing out of the US. So what gives?See More

Those nasty US slaveholders (Or the past's one percenters!)

One of the posters on the rant in the past alluded that one of the other posters might have slaveholding ancestors. Well he didn't and neither did I.Here's why: In 1860, the total free population of the United States and its territories was 27,489,561. A total of 393,975 people owned 3,953,760 slaves. That's 1.4% of the population that owned slaves, with an average of 10 slaves per owner.See More

"Interesting and thought provoking post. Do we have rights beyond those delineated in the US Constitution? If so are they legal and democratic? A messy situation for sure!"

"Technically an electric bicycle is motorized, but it's doubtful if there's much, if any, enforcement of Transit regulations on them. Walmart sells them in the U.S.  I got a bicycle license once for one that was imported here."

Visa Overstay Fine, Where to Pay

Posted on March 2, 2017 at 6:41pm 1 Comment

I know you can probably pay at Chiriqui Mall, but can you pay at Rio Sereno, Paso Canoas, and the airports?

And no I am not overstayed, this for for someone else.

Internal Affairs Officer Lt. Eric Nuñez

Lee Zeltzer initially posted this. Eric is the anti corruption contact for the Police Nacional for this area. His cel is 6520 7083. He is the person to call for any transito and other irregularities. If you stick this number on your driver license it would help keep things honest. Also if you are unfortunate to get towed, demand a ticket. You shouldn't be towed without a recorded infraction.

Any news on when the streets will be paved and in what order?

Also, I heard that septic tanks that qualify will be hooked up free of charge. Any news on that?

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Mr Frank.
