By BBN Staff: The Ministry of Transport is advising Belizeans that from Wednesday, June 13 to Friday June 15, Mexico’s Secretariat of Communications and Transportation will be conducting checking inspections near Subtieniente Lopez on Route 186 (Escarcega-Chetumal highway) on the Mexican side of the border to promote the registration of Belizean commercial vehicles entering Mexico.
These inspections are to encourage Belizean drivers to register and comply with requirements that are related to the standard international procedure and in agreement with a Memorandum of Understanding on International Motor Carrier, Passenger and Freight Transportation signed between the governments of Belize and Mexico signed on October 25, 2017.
Mexican authorities have assured that no fines will be charged during inspections of Belizean drivers and vehicles, but by Friday, all vehicles and drivers engaging in international cargo and passenger service, must have the proper registration, license and current insurance to drive in Mexico.
During operations, information brochures will be available in English for Belizean drivers about the procedures that need to be followed for the registration and the acquisition of insurance.
The Ministry of Transport notes that there are similar requirements that apply to Mexican commercial vehicles entering Belize with the Memorandum of Understanding between two countries, and is urging all Belizeans to comply.
