“This Congress of Mexico City approved reforms to the Penal Code that are of great importance. The increase in criminal penalties is established for those motorists who commit a crime, such as homicide or injuries against a person, considering one of these elements: that they have invaded the lane confined to cyclists, that they go intoxicated, who is distracted handling cell phones or devices, ” explained Ricardo Ruiz Suárez, president of the Administration and Justice Procurement Commission.

Public transport

Drivers of public transport and cargo who are involved in a road accident must undergo alcohol or narcotics tests at that time.
