Fines of more than $2,000 pesos plus the retention of the vehicle.
The Ministry of Public Security warns that as of January the 1st 2018, transit regulation establishes fines from $680 pesos to more than $2,000 pesos, plus the retention of the vehicle, to all of those who have not made the exchange of license plates.
The disbursement will be much greater for owners who have not complied with the renewal of license plates because, in order to recover the impounded vehicle, it would necessarily have to be updated with the registration cost, fines and surcharges pending at the time of the vehicle retention.
In a statement a few days after the deadline for the exchange, the Yucatan State Police makes a call to all motorists who still have not gotten their new licence plates and registration card, to do so. Law enforcement officials say the exchange has been made in about 75 percent of the units registered in the Yucatan vehicular registry.
On January 31st last year the State Executive published in the Official Gazette the decree number 456/2017, by means of which the payment of vehicle rights is partially exempted, in order to favor the fulfillment of tax obligations to owners of vehicles, as well as as to contribute to the effective update of the State Register of Vehicular Control.
The validity of the decree ended on December 31st 2017 and in accordance with the Regulations of the “Traffic and Roads Act of the State of Yucatan”, articles 75 and 81, “every vehicle that transits in the state, has the obligation to carry the circulation card and licence plates.”
In Article 76 of the aforementioned regulation, it is stated that the registration cards (tarjeta de circulación in Spanish), will have the same validity as the licence plates and will be issued together with these, in the cases of placement or replacement.
The same Regulation establishes a fine of 13 to 15 days of Units of Measurement and Updating ($75.49 pesos per day) for driving without the valid tarjeta de circulación, and from 9 to 12 days, plus the retention of the vehicle, for driving without license plates, or with the old ones.
