Mexico.- The regularization of the so-called “chocolate cars” that circulate in the national territory can become a great market for insurance companies, assured the Mexican Association of Insurance and Finance Agents (amafac).

“We have the Federal Law, but the awareness of the police is lacking, of the authority to fine and enforce the regulations. For example, the National Guard stops me and they don’t ask for car insurance, only when there is a road mishap. In addition, society must be aware that being uninsured and driving is a risk, as is not having a vaccine. When it happens and you are not protected, what does that person pay with? ”, He pointed out.
However, the manager emphasized that work must be done on the culture of prevention in drivers of automotive units, as well as the authorities must strive to apply the laws on the matter.
“Of course the legalization of foreign or illegal cars is an attractive market, we have many products already designed, such as “Choca calm”, where they seek to help the entire population have access to basic insurance. The biggest benefit for insurance is having these cars on the federal registry, that will make them insurable,” he explained.
In this sense, de la Garza Ramírez indicated that what will make chocolate cars insured by companies is the vehicle registration that will be implemented of these, with which the owners will be able to access basic insurance for the unit.
