MEXICO CITY, Dec. 29.—The efforts of the municipal authorities to regulate motor traffic in Mexico City led today to a parade of several hundred trucks and cars in protest.
The traffic problem is becoming serious in the centre of the city owing to the narrow streets and the congestion caused by other traffic and the street railway, whose lines enter or cross the principal streets.
Increase in the number of autos has caused a large increase in accidents, due mostly to immature drivers and lack of uniform traffic laws. The local authorities are unable to inflict proper punishment on drivers owing to the facility with which they can obtain a writ of amparo.
