Since last year, cargo vehicles They are prohibited from entering the Guadalajara Metropolitan Area (AMG) from 06:00 to 09:00 hours. However, it was observed that the trailers circulate without restriction or sanction by the Road Police.
Yesterday, from 07:30 to 08:30 hours, a total of 57 cargo trucks traveled through the highway to Chapala at its junction with the highway to El Salto without the presence of a single patrol or agent of the state agency.
This happens despite the fact that the State Security Secretariat (SSE), through the Highway Police Station, affirmed that the highway supervision operations remain in the restriction and access polygon to the metropolis.
The reform promoted by the governor of Jalisco sought to mitigate the congestion that freight transport represents and the risk to road safety, since these units are involved in one of every 10 accidents, despite the fact that they only represent 5% of all motor vehicles.
In the announcement of the measure, the Government of Jalisco indicated that other objectives were to improve transit conditions, reduce polluting emissions and contribute to improving the logistics of delivery-receipt of products and merchandise in the AMG.
The SSE also reported that since the sanctions began (February 1, 2020), to the last cut (September 30, 2021) 7,776 cédulas infractions to this type of transport have been issued and 27 vehicles have been detained.
“This is how the Police Station of the Road Police maintains the supervision of the roads with the aim of achieving an order for the benefit of all,” he said.
This means of communication made known Last Tuesday 422 cars made a prohibited turn at the intersection of Lázaro Cárdenas and López Mateos avenue, without the presence of traffic agents.
Faced with the claim of citizens for tolerance to road infractions and the absence of agents, the Road Police refuses to make transparent the number of uniformed officers and patrols on duty.
Their argument is that it is information that is reserved for security reasons.
