Cozumel authorities seize vehicles circulating without proper documentation

Cozumel, Q.R. — Elements of the Transit Subdirectorate of Cozumel set up inspection points around the island Thursday. The operations were carried out in coordination with the Mobility Institute of the State of Quintana Roo (ImoveQroo).

Cozumel delegation and elements of the Mexican Navy carried out vehicle inspections in order to detect irregular documentation. The operation was headed by Police Officer Telly Caamal Hau and the head of Cozumel ImoveQroo Cozumel, Anuar García García.

Both moved around the island with two Cozumel inspectors setting up roadside inspection filters on Avenida Juárez between 125 and 140 Streets. There, vehicles were stopped for driver and vehicle documentation reviews.

“In this type of operation, cars and motorcycles of individuals as well as companies are reviewed verifying that the drivers have a current driver’s license, as well as the current license plates and then, depending on the case, they request the review of the vehicle license to detect any type of anomaly,” the agency explained.
