Cancun, Q.R. — A total of 15 Cancun combis have been temporarily removed from streets for various traffic violations.
The combis, which belong to the Andrés Quintana Roo Taxi Drivers’ Union, were taken out of circulation by Municipal Transit after being found in violation of traffic acts that included excessive speeding, overcrowding and driver mobile use.
Erasmo Abelar Cámara, union head, said they will not allow operators to continue abusing the system, which is why the Directorate of Traffic has applied sanctions.
“We seek to improve in terms of service. We do not forget the violations like speeding. Those issues are not going to be tolerated and those who violate the law will be punished. We will also take measures,” said the union leader.
The Andrés Quintana Roo Taxi Drivers’ Union has more than 600 units that circulate around the city of Cancun. The 15 suspended units remain in the facilities of the Andrés Quintana Roo Taxi Drivers’ Union in Cancun.
