* A whole municipal campaign
* Collection or favoritism?
The municipal authorities, headed by Mayor Luis Guillermo Benítez Torres, adhering to the new Mobility and Sustainability regulations, continue in their campaign to remove the largest number of public spaces for motor vehicles on streets that have served as parking lots in the Historic Center for decades from Mazatlan.
This has bothered motorists who complain about tax and arbitrary measures; Likewise, merchants get irritated because it affects them in their shops since drivers do not want to approach the center of the city because there are no private parking spaces either and they run the risk of being FINED unless they want to leave the unit about five or six blocks from where they go.
Even some street vendors and semi-fixed posts have been removed from the opposite sidewalk, although they have protection that protects them from “any government action” that affects them.
These measures to paint the yellow trimmings on many streets in downtown Mazatlan is to prohibit the parking of cars in narrow street areas and because it makes road traffic difficult, traffic officials in the area say.
A driver, annoyed, said that “they are going to open the private parking lot of the Lizárraga family and that is why they remove spaces on public roads, to force drivers to get into private parking lots.”
