In past years there was always a traffic officer present during the Ajijic, Wednesday Tianguis

The last time I went through that crosswalk it was manned by that sourfaced young man who earned a very bad reputation washing cars in front of iShop. He had a safety vest on, and a paper cup trying to collect money from those using the walk as well as drivers. Everyone who recognised him responded with hoots of laughter.

Are you kidding?

Self-appointed crossing guard. This kid is nothing if not extremely creative in finding ways to extract pesos from people.

Yes, that's who I was talking about, I have seen him with his vest in the area recently but have not seen him actually crossing people.

Yep, Tonio can be seen far and wide. On Sundays you will find him on Colon in Ajijic helping people park. He is very creative indeed......

It sounds like we all know Tonio, I sure do and try to avoid him whenever possible.


In past years there was always a traffic officer present during the Ajijic, Wednesday Tianguis, not Tonio, but a real transito (spelling?)

So it should be easy to make the request of having a transito work the Wednesday tianguis in Ajijic. The office is located in the old city hall in Chapala, along the Avenida Hidalgo side of the building. At least that's what the sign says on the building. Someone should stop by and check that out. I might even do it.

At the very least they could paint (or repaint?) a crosswalk there and throw down some of those temporary topes on market day. Maybe some flashing lights too. The upside with all the traffic now is vehicles aren't travelling too fast around there any more.

Stoplight there instead of La Floresta. Are 2 stoplights within 10 meters really needed?
But at the least what CB said.

There is a new Tránsito Chief per OP. I'm certain all of these issues will be successfully addressed in short order.

I like your sense of humor Rosa Venus..as we all know nothing will change but you just never know..
They could do one of those round about like they have now in Europe.. no light people go around and merge .. and put a light at the tianguis.. but no chance that will ever happen because that would work..

Yes. I was being sarcastic.

This must be a golden gig for transitos, all these gringos who don't now how to drive in MX, don't speak Spanish, are afraid of them, and have wallets loaded with pesos. Transitos must fight over - or pay for - an assignment in Chapala. ffffftt

Yessssss. My Spanish teacher and I used to laugh about it. He'd hear all the "mordida stories" from his fresh-off-the-boat students. We'd laugh an dubbed the local tránsito gig, "El Paraíso".

Did you ever see Ms Thang's post about entering the transito property in Riberas once when they were closed and she saw them all sitting around a table splitting up the money?

I bet our transitos have all bought their jobs.
