You will no longer be able to park for more than an hour in the Center of Mazatlán


Mayor Édgar Augusto González Zataráin indicated that they are working on alternatives to improve the conditions of parking spaces in the first square of the city

MAZATLÁN.- The few parking spaces continue to cause problems in the first square of Mazatlán, causing disagreement on people, because the existing spaces are taken by merchants or workers from the city council itself who take over the place, reported the mayor Édgar Augusto González Zataraín.

Faced with this problem, the municipality sees the possibility of putting parking meters, an action that is still being studied.

“We have thought about the parking meter and we did take a little bit of it because later they bring up that the issue is a collection, I would say that it would be good and in some places we could start; imagine in the market where many tenants stay all day, but there will be protest as everything”.

And while they are studying that possibility, an alternative will be to place signs that indicate to the public how long they can park in a place.

According to the municipal agent, cars will be allowed to park for one hour, after that time a fine will be issued.

“We are waiting to give them only one hour for all those who come to buy and thus give everyone an opportunity. One hour is enough. As soon as they give us the signage, we are going to install it and those who spend the hour will be fined”.

Its function is to collect money in exchange for the right to park a vehicle in a public place, for a certain amount of time.

Parking meters can be used by municipalities as a tool to enforce their street parking policies, which are usually related to traffic and mobility management policies.

The use of parking meters brings benefits for everyone, for example, drivers have a guarantee with official support on the parking of their vehicles and greater fluidity, residents receive a percentage of the parking meter charge to make public improvements and the city government has greater control over the transportation routes.
