Marko Cortés Mendoza, National Action Party (PAN) coordinator for the Chamber of Deputies, said Wednesday that the Hoy No Circula program is ineffective in improving air quality in the Valley of Mexico.

Cortés Mendoza, who represents the state of Michoacán, said that the federal and Mexico City governments should end Hoy No Circula and the system of Environmental Alerts (Contingencias Ambientales).

He also proposed a series of alternative policies to reduce air pollution.

“We should revise transit laws and change speed limits and minimum speeds on main roads,” said Cortés Mendoza. “We should be stricter about emissions tests, we should test the gasoline that we are importing and producing for contaminants, and we need to create transportation alternatives.”

PAN deputies have also proposed that 5 percent of the federal infrastructure budget be used for promoting sustainable mobility such as bicycle lanes and mass transit. They also support tax incentives for hybrid and electric cars.
