When does it happen, and where does it affect?

The strike will be conducted with the aim of demanding an end to the insecurity as well as the killing of the operators.

They will also demand action against abuses such as excessive tow truck fees, attention to the poor condition of the roads, a lack of safe places for rest, and other issues.

The strike comes after two incidents of running red lights on Wednesday.

First, a driver was shot by armed men to force him to stop at kilometer 60 of the Mexico-Querétaro highway, in the section corresponding to the municipality of Jilotepec. The driver was deprived of his liberty, beaten, and abandoned due to alleged confusion.

On the same day, a few hours later, another operator was shot on the Mexico-Querétaro highway, near the municipality of San Juan del Río, after refusing to stop in front of criminals. The driver reached the San Gil subdivision, where he asked for help from private security personnel, so the criminals ran away.

Where are the obstacles?

According to the Coalition of Transport Organizations, the main point is highway 57 Mexico-Queretaro Km 90, in the Arco Norte cloverleaf.

Although there are also marches or strikes by transporters in different states of the Republic, this was also confirmed by the national president of the United Federal Drivers Association, David Múñoz, in an interview with Radio Formula.

According to David Múñoz, the call for a national stoppage of work for February 5 will consist of peaceful marches in all the streets of the country as a way to see the problem.

It should be noted that a demonstration led by the Mexican Alliance of AC Transporters Organization (AMOTAC) is also scheduled to take place on February 15, as announced by Miguel Ángel Santiago Solís, national coordinator of this organization.

The mobilization announced is also to express their disapproval of the violence against them and, above all, because, despite the fact that their demands have apparently been met, “we have no results, and the results that are, the truth is, they are not enough to solve the problem and the phenomenon we are experiencing today.
