Mazatlán, Sinaloa.- Alfredo Noriega López, leader of the group of green ecotaxis, described as a ‘misunderstanding’ the blockade that took place yesterday afternoon in the middle of the tourist area, classifying it as an isolated event that will not be repeated. .

The leader recalled that the way of working of both groups of ecotaxis consists of weekly shifts in which one line has a preference in certain areas of the city and it was because of this that confusion was generated; a taxi from the green line barged in during the red taxi preferential week.

“That was just a misunderstanding between the teammates. We work as follows; one week it is time to present service in certain areas to the group of red ecotaxis and then the following week that we provide the service is changed, ”explained Noriega López.

Yesterday afternoon a video was circulated on social networks in which three ecotaxis of the red line were seen obstructing the passage to one of the green line, showing the way in which the carriers opened the trunk of the vehicle and stole the luggage from the passenger, all while tourists and residents of Mazatlán watched with suspicion.

“There was a misunderstanding that there was between the companions which one of the group of us presented himself, in this case of green ecotaxis to a service in a hotel that did not correspond to us due to the change of week, the spirits warmed a little in a matter of colleagues, but it was all a misunderstanding ”, he confirmed.

Noriega López clarified that the drivers involved have already been sanctioned and even suspended from their work for an indefinite period of time by the highway and transportation authorities, who were present moments after the altercation.

“The authority in question of roads and transportation intervened to give follow-up and those details as a regulatory authority, they put the cards on the table and yes, the companions were sanctioned with an infraction and also suspended for a certain time, but it is not that they this is going to worsen but it was only a misunderstanding, “he said at the end.
