Cozumel buggy driver suspended after failing anti-doping test

Cozumel, Q.R. — A man has been suspended from his tourist-service job after failing an anti-doping test.

Miguel González, director of Municipal Transport says that doping tests are regularly requested of tourist providers. He says this time, an unannounced anti-doping test was requested by 22 drivers, one of which tested positive.

González says that according to regulations, the horse and carriage buggy driver has been temporarily suspended from driving after he tested positive. He says the driver will be fined and must spend at least three months in rehabilitation to continue operating.

He explained that the testing is regular, adding that there are 35 groups of drivers between Uniper and Union of Taxi Drivers that offer services to the public. The testing is performed to ensure that all forms of public transport are safe.
