This was reported by the Deputy Director of Municipal Roads, Everardo Rubio Avalos, who according to the instructions of Mayor Jorge Antonio Quintero Alvarado, has continued to apply the Traffic Regulations, in the fairest manner and in accordance with the law, and respect for human rights, so that drivers do not feel assaulted, but at the same time comply with their obligations as citizens.

The most recurrent infraction in the municipality of Puerto Vallarta continues to be parking in a prohibited place with 506, followed by not respecting the red light with 362, this only for cars, but motorcycles deserved the attention of the elements and 76 motorcycles were given a folio.

It is worth mentioning that for not using seat belts, there were 69, while the previous month there were 64, and the report shows that for using cell phones while driving, 150 people were violated, while for speeding there were 94.
