Yucatán’s roads are among the safest in Mexico, because there have been no recorded attacks and the accident rate is low compared with other states, said the chief inspector of the Merida Federal Police Station, Jorge Espadas Perez.
He said that Yucatan has 1,600 kilometers of roadways, of which 918 correspond to the Merida police station. Of these, the busiest are the roadway to Cancun, relating to tourism; to Campeche, because it is the path to the rest of the country; and to the ports of Progreso and Celestun, providing connections for workers of these areas and the Yucatecan capital.
He said that at this time of year, the Federal Police beef up the holiday operations to provide security at the local, national and international tourists who travel to the attractions and beaches of the state.
He reiterated that Yucatan does not have dangerous roads, because no assaults or robberies occur; plus it has reduced the accident rate by coordination between law enforcement agencies of the three levels of government and the population.
The most frequent offenses committed by drivers on federal highways are speeding: some motorists exceed 140 kilometers per hour, so they would have to pay a fine between 2,000 and 2,500 pesos.
In this holiday season the Federal Police implement the road operation as “Knight of the Highway” for road support; “Belt” for safety belt use; “Radar”, to decrease speed rates in order to avoid accidents; “Carousel” to control the vehicular influence; “Breathalyzer” which is the measurement of blood alcohol of the drivers, whose operation is done in coordination with the Ministry of Public Security.
For the first time the operation “Helmet” which is the urge motorcyclists to use that attachment that can save lives was implemented. This program is mainly applied in populations in the interior of the state,” he said.
Espadas Perez said that the Federal Police have the PF Mobile application, in which citizens can report violations, request help and see news. PF also operates the emergency number 088 and Merida 9999-46-12-23.
