Public transport units in state must remove tint from windows

Riviera Maya, Q.R. — All public transport units across the state are being checked for tinted windows. Over the weekend, Movilidad del Estado de Quintana Roo (Imoveqroo) participated in an operation to ensure public units were free of the tint.

The operation to remove the tint from windows of public units including taxis, buses and combis is to ensure safety for users.

According to information provided by the state government in a press release, the operation is based on Article 145 of the Regulations to the Mobility Law of the State of Quintana Roo under ‘Non-polarized windows’.

“Approximately 70 percent of the population in Quintana Roo uses public transport, so with these measures, Imoveqroo seeks to guarantee the safety of those who use this means of transport on a daily basis and that concessionaires and operators are respectful of the regulations that the law indicates,” the statement read.

During the first phase of the campaign, drivers with tinted windows are being pulled over and their plate numbers recorded. If they fail to remove the tint, a second offence will lead to a fine.
