Is there an Ajijic resident who hasn’t had an altercation with a cab driver? Yes, there are individual cabbies whom we all love and I suspect those who aren’t nice, don’t even live in Ajijic. They just come here for our money! I have several objectives for bringing this up.

In Ajijic, there are TWO official, yet unsigned for years, handicapped parking spaces. With the continued influx of elderly residents, both expat and Mexican, MORE handicap spaces at the plaza are essential and their lack of is probably a violation of Mexico’s human rights laws. There have been incidents where senior citizen transportation was denied parking by taxi personnel, violating Mexico’s tradition of respect and care for seniors.

Therefore, I propose:

1.      That the number of taxi parking spaces be cut in half and that the spaces be dedicated to handicap parking WITH signs. Chapala has multiple spaces with signs.

2.      That the taxi stand east of Guadalajara Pharmacy and three spaces at the Malecon be activated for taxis in compensation to the cabbies and for the convenience of residents. Elderly customers  especially tourists, might not be able to walk to the Plaza to get a cab.

3.      That the police monitor the dedicated spaces at the plaza and be instructed to call Transito when unauthorized persons park in these spaces; often personnel from nearby businesses.

I am willing to donate, but I want to be sure the donation of $100 is pesos, not dollars.
