Pedestrians and cyclists are priority in the Mobility Law in Durango

The harmonization process in Durango to standardize the General Mobility and Road Safety Law published in the Official Gazette of the Federation on May 17, must take place in such a way that it does not lose the essence for which it was created; put pedestrians and cyclists in the foreground, as well as clearly establish the differences between transportation and mobility, said the councilor for Movimiento Ciudadano (MC), María Guadalupe “Tita” de la Parra Reyes.

From its publication to date, it has already achieved the homologation of laws and regulations in states such as Yucatán and Aguascalientes; the missing 30 laws have 180 days to do so. Proposed at the national level by Movimiento Ciudadano, this law manages to establish measures that leave out the discretion of municipalities and states.

The General Law of Mobility and Road Safety establishes the speeds to circulate in main and secondary avenues; the obligatory nature of breathalyzers in the streets; seat belt use; the mandatory nature of a helmet for those who use a motorcycle, as well as taking a theoretical and practical exam when applying for a driver’s license.

In this sense, the councilor “Tita” de la Parra insists that a process should be carried out in Durango where the main objective of the law is not at risk, although local legislators such as Ricardo Pacheco have recognized that it is a very complex issue and implies a lot of prior analysis. to be voted on by the Plenary of Congress.

He maintains that it is evolutionary tending to transform the city, so that citizens are better protected. And in the end, it does not concern a certain party specifically, but rather it is a matter of collective benefit that seeks the general well-being.

Reducing the high rates of accidents in the country is a task that is up to everyone, and although Durango MC does not have representatives, alliances must be made to move forward with the approval so that it is harmonized correctly; because it is not about who win the cause, the important thing is to understand that its purpose is the common benefit, “Tita” insisted.

Although it should not be forgotten that there are many interests involved; there are the platforms, unions and public transport; Consequently, it must be the subject of a great analysis. Dividing transport and mobility, as well as putting people first.

When harmonization began in Durango, there was already a rapprochement with different civil organizations, even after being evaluated and qualified, it will be known how well this process took place.
