Anyone caught using or selling fireworks in Rio Lagartos will be fined.
Yucatan municipalities reinforce measures to prevent the sale and use of pyrotechnics during on New Year’s, punishing anyone who violates these provisions.
For the second consecutive year, Río Lagartos approved the ban on the sale and use of pyrotechnics during the Christmas and New Year holidays.
In this regard, Mayor Eric Alcocer Estrada said that fines will apply for anyone using fireworks.
He added that only the City Council of Río Lagartos will have a pyrotechnics show on the night of December 31. And made it clear that December 24 and Christmas Day, there will be no fireworks.
“In Rio Lagartos we have many restaurants with palapas, and we don’t want any accidental fires, it’s better to prevent. People’s pets and the local wildlife (especially birds), get very stressed out with the fireworks, that is why we decided to ban them here. We are also prohibiting the clandestine sale of fireworks, and fortunately last year, people took this measure very seriously and there was nobody fined; people did not sell or used pyrotechnics at all, that is why we are doing it again this year”, declared Alcocer Estrada.
The mayor made it clear that the municipal authority of Río Lagartos only uses fireworks on the Grito de Independencia ceremony on September 15th, and on New Year’s Eve, on December 31st.
Hopefully other municipalities in the state of Yucatan will adopt the same measures in the near future, and prohibit the sale and use of fireworks, in favor of ecology, and in combat against air and noise pollution.
