A state lawmaker proposed a bill that would force public transit companies to purchase liability insurance for buses.

Assemblyman Julio César Vázquez, of the Workers Party, introduced a bill to modify the Law of Sustainable Mobility.

The lawmaker said the proposal seeks to provide certainty to passengers.

A study from the Mexican Transportation Institute revealed that traffic accidents in Baja California climbed from 491 in 2020 to 587 in 2021.

The study says fatal victims also increased from 90 to 97.

“In most of traffic accidents public transit buses are involved,” Vázquez said. “Many of these buses have no vehicle insurance policy.”

The lawmaker said victims are left unprotected.

Due to the lack of law clarity companies do not comply with state requirements.
