CIUDAD DE MÉXICO, 07MARZO2017.- El juez Octavo de Distrito en Materia Administrativa en la Ciudad de México declaró inconstitucional la imposición de sanciones patrimoniales por infracciones de tránsito de manera automática a través de una foto o video, sin que el ciudadano pueda defenderse. Esta medida sólo favorece a quienes se ampararon, sin embargo las fotomultas continúan aplicándose. FOTO: ISAAC ESQUIVEL /CUARTOSCURO.COM, photo: Cuartoscuro/Isaac Esquivel

A federal justice issued the fourth amparo (a Mexican constitutional legal process that protects citizens and their basic rights) against speeding tickets issued through photographic evidence, under the claim that they are in direct violation of citizens' right to a hearing.[caption id="attachment_50946" align="aligncenter" width="1200"] Tickets issued through photographic evidence violate the right to a hearing according to a federal justice.

The Mayor of Mexico City claimed that photographic evidence have been helpful and have saved people’s lives.“The process cannot be sped up before the definitive resolutions. The aim of photographic evidence is clear: to save lives and improve transit. A clear example of its successful outcome is Viaducto, where speeding has being reduced considerably,” said Mancera.
