The regularization program for imported used vehicles contained in the decree proposed by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, was formalized this week in three more entities of the seven established, Durango, Michoacan de Ocampo and Nayarit, reported this Friday the Secretary of Security and Citizen Protection, Rosa Icela Rodríguez.
“This week the beginning of a new stage was formalized by adding three more entities to this benefit, these are Durango, Michoacán and Nayarit,” the official announced.
The decree published since October last year came into force as of this Wednesday January 19 and until July 20 this year in the ten entities with the highest incidence: Baja California, Baja California Sur, Durango, Sonora, Nayarit, Michoacán de Ocampo, Coahuila de Zaragoza, Tamaulipas, Chihuahua and Nuevo León.
The regulations seek to prevent “vehicles from being used by criminal gangs and anonymously, and that there is a lack of legal certainty for many families who use them for their daily activities,” Rodríguez said.
In Chihuahua alone, 80 percent of the 119,500 irregular cars, without plates issued by the authority, have been related to cases of intentional homicides.
“This type of units circulate everywhere, we must remove them from anonymity and find those responsible for the violence,” said the secretary.
In accordance with the new provision, only motor vehicles that are in this side of the border and are more than five years old will be subject to payment of 2 thousand 500 pesos to comply with the corresponding documentation, such as its registration in the Public Vehicle Registry (Repuve).
The resources obtained from this collection will be invested in the repair of potholes in the places where this rule is in force.
“The cooperation of the 2 thousand 500 pesos remains in the states and municipalities so that these resources are used in improve the streets, that is also important that citizens know it, that it is a cooperation and that it is for the benefit of the municipality, ”López Obrador clarified.
