Mazatlan doubles surveillance and vehicle checkpoints to keep people at home


Mazatlán, Sinaloa.- While the Mayor Luis Guillermo Benítez Torres maintains that the restaurants will open on Mother’s Day, causing an increase in vehicular circulation, the Deputy Director of Traffic Francisco Guerra announced that as of this Thursday they have doubled surveillance in the municipality with the installation of rotating vehicle checkpoints that aim to keep citizens at home in the face of the announced “peak” of the pandemic that will occur between May 8 and 10, according to federal health authorities.

He recognized that “a part of the public is not understanding that the # QuédateenCasa is to prevent this pandemic from continuing to grow. We are going to inform and admonish people, but if they continue with this refusal to stay at home, we will stop the vehicle or the person, since they violate the Police and Good Governance Side by putting themselves at risk and putting third parties at risk. ”

Those who go to medical services, work or buy food will be able to circulate and in vehicles no more than three people with face mask and gloves will be allowed, while on motorcycles only the driver can travel.

He did not explain whether Mother’s Day will apply the operation.
