Street abruptly ends with drop-off (El Vigia, 2/13/13 by Nicte Madrigal)

Ensenada, BC - Residents of the Colonia Los Encinos face a daily risk involving a street which without any sign ends suddenly with a drop of more than 1.20 meters (4 feet). A neighboring Condo Ámbar resident, who requested his identity not be revealed, stated the situation has generated problems for many cars when arriving at the end of the street - which does not have any kind of signage or lighting to prevent precipitating damage. This does not even account for the danger to children.

Members of the Settlers Committee report at least three streets are in this condition despite the fractionation has been inhabited for more than three years and the responsible construction company still refuses to build a fence.

Those affected indicated at least four accidents have occurred at the site. They said a delivery man on a motorcycle was confronted by where "the street that ends. Fortunately when he landed onto the street below he knew how to maneuver and fell off the bike without injury," someone said.

On one occasion they said they received support from Municipal Police when an accident occurred and the construction company even lent its machinery to remove the vehicle. However, despite all this, they claimed the response to residents by an employee of Geo, Rigoberto Álvarez has been that "there are other priorities; we do not know when we will get to it".

They note the risk increases in the evenings, since there is no public lighting, because if you want this service, they the wiring must be installed and the use paid for by someone, since the fractionation has not yet been delivered to City Hall.

"All these details were not told to us when we signed the sales contracts. At the time they delivered the homes to us they made us sign where it said there was lighting", they said.

Rigoberto Álvarez, the head of the Department of Quality of Community Life reported that the fractionation has already been delivered to the Committee of Colonists of Condominium Ámbar, so the project will resolve the situation. The commitment, he said, will complete the project in the shortest possible time at no charge to the residents of Los Encinos. He said that last Saturday at a meeting with Condominium Ámbar residents where they were informed that they will present the project to relevant authorities to be approved for completion.

It is said, the placement of necessary and functional elements should be without any cost to the residents. The neighborhood residents mentioned "they have the right to express themselves and we can not stifle them". Rigoberto Álvarez said that security is very important to the company so you will soon see the problem fixed.

This pothole is for you (El Vigia, 2/13/13 by Benjamin Pacheco)

Ensenada, BC - In addition to images that satirize potholes in the city of Ensenada, a song that makes mockery of the city’s epidemic roadway problems and President Enrique Pelayo Torres is now circulating on social networks.


The song was originally titled "Bache para ti Ensenada (Bump for you Ensenada)" and the parody is a reinterpretation of the piece - used to promote tourism for the municipality, which is available on the You Tube video site.

The words concerned an individual who wakes up ready to work and improve the city for his own benefit and his family. In the mockery, the singer warns of the risks of living in a city full of potholes and even compares them to lunar craters. Those interested in listening to the parody version can go to
