“Shocking! Quintana Roo Vehicle Insurance Violations: Up to 75,000 Pesos Fine”

In Quintana Roo, a state in Mexico, failing to have a valid vehicle insurance policy is a serious violation. This is according to Article 198 of the State Mobility Law. The penalties for this violation are outlined in Article 204 of the same law. Fines can range from 16,394.07 pesos to 75,999.00 pesos. This is equivalent to 151 to 700 times the daily value of the Measurement and Updating Unit (UMA).

Rodrigo Alcázar Urrutia, the General Director of the Mobility Institute of the State of Quintana Roo (IMOVEQROO), has urged all vehicle owners, particularly those operating public transportation, to ensure they have an appropriate and valid insurance policy.

Urrutia emphasized that having valid insurance is not just a legal requirement for operators. It's also a crucial step in safeguarding the lives and property of all passengers traveling on the state's roads.

To ensure the safety and peace of mind of public transport users, IMOVEQROO carries out checks on vehicle insurance policies. During these inspections, they verify that all documentation is up-to-date and complete, including the insurance policy.

As of now in 2024, 21 fines have been issued to public transport operators for not having a valid insurance policy. This information comes from the Supervision, Inspection, and Surveillance Directorate of Mobility.
