21 public units fined for driving without auto insurance

Riviera Maya, Q.R. — Personnel from the Mobility Institute of the State of Quintana Roo (Imoveqroo) are asking for proof of insurance from public transport units.

Imoveqroo head Rodrigo Alcázar Urrutia says insurance policies are mandatory for all state drivers and is why they are in a verification operation.

Alcázar Urrutia said that according to data from the Directorate of Supervision, Inspection and Surveillance of Mobility, so far in 2024, 21 fines have been imposed on public transport operators for not having a valid insurance policy.

He says the 21 public transport drivers received fines that start at 16,394.00 pesos and increase from there.

Alcázar Urrutia says all vehicle owners, especially public transport drivers, are encouraged to have a suitable current insurance policy.

He says in Quintana Roo it is a legal violation to drive without auto insurance under Article 198 of the Mobility Law of the State of Quintana Roo.

“In the event of an accident, insurance can cover medical expenses, repairs and other liabilities, preventing drivers from facing huge out-of-pocket costs. This is especially vital in protecting families and preserving their economic stability,” he said.

He stressed that a vehicle insurance policy provides coverage in case of accidents, damage to third parties and material losses, offering peace of mind and financial support in the event of unforeseen situations.

“Safety on public roads depends largely on the responsibility of each driver. Having vehicle insurance not only complies with legal regulations, but also contributes to the creation of a safer and more protected road environment for all the inhabitants of Quintana Roo,” he explained.
