Full use of municipal authorities for those who block roads in Mazatlan, warned Luis Guillermo Benítez Torrez, due to the blockade made by taxi drivers and aurigas, last week on Santa Rosa Avenue.
Last Friday drivers of the red, green eco taxis and even
aurigas closed the way to a unit of the CROC, according to because it had a passenger.
The conflict was such that the taxis attacked an operational head of Public Safety, the driver of the unit and repeatedly insulted a woman, without the authority applying the law.
“I assure you that it is over because the blockades are over, we are going to make all the use of the public force for those taxis who return to blockade trasportation, and not only the Municipal Police will participate,” he warned.
The mayor, he has been asking the State Government to withdraw the concessions for those who participate in these acts, which must be done because it is the only way to stop the problem.
On the other hand, the Secretary of the City Council, José de Jesús Flores Segura, informed that it is a problem of the Government of the State and it is not seen that there is a will on the part of the Directorate of Roads and Transportation.
“It is a matter of them, while it is the State they will be the ones to solve it, in case there are damages there will be arrests against whoever commits them,” he warned.
