Mazatlan transit police being investigated for not issuing proper fine to motorists driving on bike path


The events occurred on Thursday and the offender was only given a minor infraction.

Mazatlán, Sinaloa.- Two traffic agents are investigated for qualifying a motorist with only a minor infraction, apparently drunk, who drove along a section of the Malecón bike path last Thursday.

The secretary of the City Council, Édgar González Zataráin, explained that the vehicle was stopped and the infraction was issued.

“ I want to tell you that the transit officer is also being investigated because they did not arrest the person for the damage to the Malecón, but rather a simple infraction, there is a broader investigation on the Transit elements, they are two elements that have been suspended during his investigation, ”he said.

The municipal official said that instead of arresting them, this time a thorough investigation of their actions was opened.

It must be remembered that on New Year’s, a police escort for the Secretary of Public Security, Juan Ramón Alfaro Gaxiola, was reported for apparently shooting in the air with his weapon, for which the commander ordered him to be arrested for 36 hours, he left free and, supposedly, was exonerated from the investigation that was opened for this crime.
