Alejandro Rosselló presented the proposal in Rosario City Council in order to make those vehicles be operational longer and thus provide a better security service. In this sense, he officially asked the Province government to conduct a feasibility study regarding the possible installation of compressed natural gas system into these vehicles.
“It is essential to improve and double the number of patrol cars. There are tasks that necessarily have to be performed and they require a quick solution,” argued Roselló.
He also noted: “The advantages of CNG are important to highlight. It costs 70% less than gasoline and their safety features have successfully been verified. In addition, the cylinder resistance is greater than the petrol tank and the ignition point is higher, preventing combustion in case of leak.”
The councilor mentioned that the measure would generate savings and the investment necessary to implement it would be quickly recouped. “Thus we enable patrol cars to operate further due to the low cost of CNG in comparison with gasoline, giving as a result a greater police presence for citizenship,” he concluded.
