The article says they were fining SC residents at their roadblocks for driving on Beltrones, and then used the monies to fix 35 street lamps.

But its my understanding that public street lighting is now operated by a private contractor paid by the city of Guaymas.

I suspect this is just a case of vague, bad reporting.

Does anyone have first hand knowledge of whats really going on?

The article does not say that they were fining people. It says that with the money that was collected by the Comisaría when the residents purchased the "passes" so they wouldn't be stopped at the check point on Beltrones, they were able to purchase enough materials to fix 35 lamps. I have no idea whether the street lighting is operated by a private company like in other cities.


My first hand experience is that on our street several neighbors got together, bought several lamps and requested at the comisaría to make arrangements for the city crew to come and install them. After a few nudges, they finally came. This was in the previous Comisario term.

I don't want lights around my place fixed. I like to see the black night sky.

Angel, it says
que las residentes tuvieron que pagar para circular en Beltrones = the residents had to pay to be able to drive on Beltrones.

You can can translate "tarjetones" any way you want, but if I have to pay to be able to go the banks, pharmacies, gas stations and grocery stores where I live that are all located on Beltrones, I personally see that as unlawfull fine or mordida. 

I don't have 1st hand info on this, do you?

Again, I suspect this is just a case of bad reporting and a misunderstanding. I have no reason to believe the commisario is taking advantage of the residents here.

Bullshipper,
I agree, bad writing and/or reporting. They didn't have to pay "to circulate on Beltrones", they payed for the "tarjeton" -a big card, literally, the one that residents hanged from the car rearview mirror]. As a resident myself, I have not ever been asked by the police for money to drive in the Boulevard, and if anybody was, they should come forward and let that known. The "tarjeton" I paid for was so I could be identified as a resident of San Carlos and when coming through the checkpoint in Beltrones I would be let through with less hassle whenever I needed to be out for an essential reason.

I have purchased the cards to hang from the rear view mirror for Semana Santa in previous years.

But this is the first I have heard of a card to allow residents to drive on Beltrones.  When was this implemented?  How much are they charging for it?

Marigot, my bad, I am also referring to the Semana Santa “pass”. I purchased once this year and I have kept it since hanging from the mirror. I believe it is the same “tarjeton” the article in question is referring to, but I may be wrong.


And as I understand the article, it is NOT to drive on Beltrones, but to allow Residents to drive through CHECKPOINTS installed on Beltrones (when they were).

Thanks Angel, that's my understanding too, year end donation and semana santa pass that never came to be this year due to the shut down. These reporters made it sound like the comissario was piling on, and from what I have seen he and his guys are doing a very good job, with a lot of renewed cartel pressure around.

Bullshipper, They did have the Semana Santa pass this year 2020. I bought one, and other people did, judging by the lines I had to make. I guess I bought it before they officially knew the town was going to shutdown during the holidays.

Thanks for the clarification, Angel.


I keep my most recent TelMex receipt in the car and the Caracol Resident placard for the rear view mirror, so I am covered on San Carlos residency proof.


Be safe, everyone.
