Traffic officials are creating prohibited zones at key intersections in an effort to eliminate vehicles blocked the flow of traffic when there is a green light.
The downtown is notorious for cars and buses being caught in a jam and blocking traffic going the other way.
The Dirección General de Ingeniería de Tránsito came up with a plan that will make clear the intersection is not to be blocked, said officials. The work is bring done at night, and it will take two weeks. The zones are being called cajas amarillas or yellow boxes.
Traffic officials said that motorists should gauge the time of traffic lights and also the proximity of other vehicles to avoid being caught in the intersection when there is a red light and blocking vehicles going in another direction. They threaten fines.
