This Monday an operation was carried out by elements of the road police and Eduardo, a motorist, was affected after the authorities took his vehicle for not wearing one of the license plates. The officers took his car from him even though he had a current driving license, since he recently lost his license plate in a storm.
Eduardo watched helplessly as his Volkswagen Vento was dragged by the tow truck, despite the fact that for him he had not failed to comply with any Mobility and Transportation Law. Despite the fact that he wanted to talk with the road policeman, he could not reach an agreement so that his car would not take him to the corralón and he would have to pay 2,900 to release him.
“The license plate fell on a street that was flooded, the license plate was reported and in order not to have a problem, I got a permit to circulate and the permit expires on July 1, I thought that with the permit I would no longer have a problem, I put the decorative plate to make things easier for the officers and I did not do it intentionally, it is very much up to the discretion, and to say that the plate is wrong, there is no intent here, I have a permit that protects me, “said the affected person.
The driver who also drives for a platform, pointed out that after what happened he will lose a day of profits and on the contrary his experience will be an expense.
“The criteria of the authority is being too strict with me and could be forceful with other people who do not comply with the Mobility LawI think that it should start with the worst and the citizens who are processing paperwork in accordance with the law are punishing us, it should be the other way around, I lost a morning in transit and it did not help much, there should be more discretion from the authority, not apply such a square criterion,” he said.
The reason why officers withdrew the vehicle, as detailed by road agents to the offender, appears in article 165 of the Mobility and Transportation Law of the State of Jalisco.
The state registry will be organized and will function in accordance with the following bases:
In fractions IV and VI:
IV. The state authorities are obliged to provide the state registry with the statistical, documentary, technical, cadastral and planning information that it requires for the best performance of its functions.
SAW. The State Government Executive will provide the necessary technical assistance and will coordinate with the municipalities, to guarantee the updating of the inscriptions in the state registry and facilitate their prompt consultation to the municipal authorities.
Eduardo will challenge his infraction since he is dissatisfied with the sanction, he also considers that they took his car to the corralón because at no time did he offer gifts or any kind of bribe to the road agent who signed as Jose Antonio Naranjo Alvarado and that the items the officer listed do not apply to your case.
In the operation, the road policemen transcribed 56 infractions; 11 motorcycles and a car were taken to the corralón.
