Is hit and run a crime in Mx?

Post by Clueless on Fri Dec 30, 2016 5:43 pm

Auto v. Auto (both gringos). One party refuses to give his name or any information. Is there any crime there?

Does it matter if it's inside a Fracc?

Is a crime a crime no matter where committed?

Call Vialidad immediately and report it. Description of vehicle and plate ID.

I do not know if it is a crime or infraction but if no one is hurt all that will happen if caught will be a fine to the guilty party.
I wastold by the policeand that was confirmed by my lawyer that for non violent crime there is nohail only fines..

I did report this in an accident (rear-ended at a red light), truck took off. Vialidad couldn't care less...for that matter neither did the insurance company. I would have thought they had a vested interest in finding the guilty party to pay for the amount above my deductible.

It is rarely enforced, buses and the Corona truck have hit clients and ran off and you have to chase them down. Drunks with no license and insurance crash and run off and the transitos would rather extort money from people than go after the bad guys.

Once they flee the scene, it is no longer the job of Vialidad to track them down. The task belongs to the Ministerio Pùblico.

I saw a guy grab the keys of another vehicle after a choque and then the fun started.

I've seen a city bus run a red light and T-bone an SUV. Hit the SUV so hard it raised the front wheels of the bus off the ground. The bus driver jumped out and ran away, leaving a bus full of shaken-up passengers. Part of the "culture", I guess.

I also understand that if you are seriously injured by the fault of another driver, you only get your medical bills and maybe some lost time, but nothing for pain, suffering and future loss of income.

You are absolutely right, 110%

Except for one lapse a week ago when I was in a serious accident, I have now put away my NOB attitudes. From now on, it's the Mx. way.

L learned by lesson.

Giving you the benefit of the doubt that you have made this post AFTER the one claiming Mexicans go to the states for the welfare program.

I would think so, that's the reason they run away.
