At 2:30 PM my wife called Aduana 01-472-103-5400 ext 61356 and spoke with Lic. Irma Carolina Gonzalez. My wife asked, in Spanish regarding a Permanent Resident who has a foreign plated car and she said the car is legal. She stated, only when their is an official change of law posted in the Diario Official de la Federacion (DOF) and then on Aduana's web site will anything be different. Again she directed all with a concern to their web site and to print out the page.
The issue was clearly stated to ensure no misunderstanding. A Permanent Resident can have a foreign plated vehicle at this time.
This is the third call over a period of 6 weeks and each time talking with a different person and always same answer.
I still contend that nobody knows nuthin' regarding this. Everybody is running around like chickens without heads and meanwhile the weasels are stirring the pot just to get your business and doing monkey business..
I went to this link...very interesting. I did not know that the price of corn was controlled by the government at 10 pesos a kilo. How can they make a profit at that especially if they are using the non subsidized version of masa. Half a kilo would last me a week.
I keep hearing about new laws. What new laws? has anyone seen them...chapter, verse, article X, section Y? I read somewhere here that new laws had been written but not "published". If so they have not been implemented yet. Maybe I am wrong and if I am please tell me and quote the law that says "it is illegal for someone with a permanent visa to drive a foreign plated car with a sticker on the windshield"...chapter and verse. I asked before if anyone personally knew of someone having their car confiscated for this "crime" (not from your gardeners uncles friend) and so far silence.The only time this has happened as far as i can tell is some poor sap taking forged documents (unknown to him) to get his new "registration". As reported in the Reporter this week there are tons of weasels benefiting from perpetrating this confusion and I refuse to buy into it. Would you not think that the police chief or top law enforcement in this this municipality would have come out and clarified this "new law" after so much hoopla here. Yes, I am permanent and drive an old foreign plated truck, and until someone convinces me otherwise i will keep driving,,,and keep a 500 peso note among my papers just in case..."when in Rome....". In the worst case they can have my truck...it's worth less than $1,000 anyway. And please, all you self righteous blatherers out there, just move on to the next post.
Just avoid that whole area. Going west come down into San Antonio, at the Plaza make a right on Ramon Corona, go all the way past the horse rental area and just past the street that has the Tiangues make a left and then a right onto 16th of Septembre and into Ajijic. You have to make that jog because the street turns into one way after the Tiangues street. Also down there closer to the lake the parking is better. Coming back is a strait shot on Constitucion right into San Antonio again. Great way to avoid the rascals and a more scenic route with less traffic.
