    They will ask for DL and registration. It's best if the name on your DL matches your registration. I have never, ever, had them ask for proof of insurance, except when a bus rear-ended me. They have never asked for a passport or an FMM.

    The laws have changed recently. Now the cops are authorized in many instances to demand payment immediately (as opposed to writing a ticket that nobody will ever pay), but they are supposed to take it via credit card using their portable terminals. If you can't pay they may demand you go to the "courthouse" immediately or they can, in some cases, impound your car. Tinted windows, for instance, are one example. The cop can fine you on the spot, or you can remove the tint on the spot, or they will impound your car. Having said that, all my cars have the backlight and rear side windows tinted and I've never been given grief during any of my traffic stops.

    In the past when I have been stopped by the police in Mexico I would just give them my Drivers license since I didn't drive around with my passport everyday. I never had them ask for anything more. If they gave me a ticket they would keep the DL until I paid the ticket. Now this is awhile back but would doubt much has changed.

    Travv,

    I respect your info and opinions. But I think your recent posts overstate the danger. I'm not denying your stories; they include highly credible links. But I can find similar stories in US cities. Reality is dozens or hundreds of mongers cross every day without incident. And those mongers would be fools not to follow basic caution.

    My rule of thumb: assume someone is looking for an opportunity to take advantage of someone at all times. So I put effort in to not be the easiest target. Simple, basic steps will keep you safe from all but random acts. No doubt, Tijuana is a dangerous place. But primarily for inter-cartel violence. If we remove that type of violence from the equation, Tijuana is no more dangerous than many big US cities.

According to the news article, the Mexican National Guard were apparently in uniform, using their worktime and official vehicles to look for kidnapping victims on the roads. . . Suggest not driving Cadillac Escalades or other expensive vehicles (like Vans) where the National Guard cops can see them. . . Like I told one Mexican dude when I was eating at Hotel Caesar a few years ago. Mexico since the days of Presidente Diaz has made it very easy for everyone to identify criminals on sight so you know to avoid them. The government puts the criminals in vehicles with flashing red lights and wearing police uniforms! Avoid! LOL.

    Do what Travv does, not what Travv says. With Mexican National Guard cops

    Are the new National Guards AMLO's new organization combining civilian volunteers, policias and Army soldiers?

    If Travv is so scared, why do I see him every time I am in La Zona?

    Perhaps Travv needs an introduction to the National Guard Commandante so he can pay for his new life insurance policy?

    Do what Travv does, not what Travv says.

    Mexican National Guard Members Caught in Act of Kidnapping, Start Shooting Police

    Borderlandbeat By HEARST 7/08/2021 06:21:00 PM 50 comments.

    " . . . Four members of the National Guard were caught participating in the kidnapping and ransom of a young man who was traveling on a highway. When the Specialized Unit to Combat Kidnapping (UECS) closed in on them, the National Guard members opened fire and shoot outs ensued.

    . . Allegedly involved in his kidnapping was at least two members of the National Guard who regularly used their official patrols in the area as time to commit highway kidnappings. The kidnapping victim and his vehicle were taken to a safehouse in the El Manantial Etla subdivision of the town of San Pablo Etla.

    Relatives of the victim were contacted via telephone by the kidnappers who demanded they pay them 200 thousand pesos and give them a new luxury van in exchange for them freeing the victim. The kidnappers explicitly stated that they would kill the victim and send his body to his relatives if they did not comply with their demands. The victim's relatives contacted the State Attorney General's Office (FGJEO) and the Specialized Unit to Combat Kidnapping (UECS) requesting their help. The agencies agreed and took over the investigation into the victim's kidnapping.

    . . Meanwhile, at the site of the ransom collection near Villa Elta, when the National Guard members spotted the UECS (State Police) agents rather than a ransom delivery a shootout ensued. . . "

    Don't worry, be happy, Tijuana isn't Like the Rest of Mexico per Jackie888?

    Jackie888's advice of essentially "Don't Worry, Be Happy" and take another hit on the bong cause all that bad stuff happens somewhere far far away in other parts of Mexico any good?

    Todays news from Borderbeat: "Tijuana, Baja California Mexico - 3 Man Team Kidnaps Man in Broad Daylight in Middle of the Street.

    By Sol Prendido 7/07/2021 11:30:00 AM 61 comments.

    "A new video from the Mexican underworld has just surfaced online. For this broadcast a man finds himself in the throes of (fight) ing his assailants from kidnapping him in broad daylight in Tijuana.

    His attackers are dropping blow after blow on his body in the hopes of subduing their victim. Knees jabs and kicks are also being utilized against him. The thugs are snatching him down by his hairs every chance they get, they're trying to tire him down.

    The victim is resisting by fighting back as much as he can. But in the end they manage to knock him unconscious while motorists gawk and just drive away. No one bothers to help him whatsoever.

    At the last moment a car with front end damage who had been stationed at the tail end of parked vehicles speeds out into the avenue.

    The 3 man team successfully pull off their crime without a hitch. Phase 1 of the plot to kidnap their victim is complete. . . . "

    Only question I have: Was that "Jackie888" being knocked out in public by a kidnapping gang in Tijuana and thrown into the trunk of a car in broad daylight to be chained to the floor of a dungeon until his ransom is paid? Jackie888 are you still free and giving out free advice not to don't worry and be happy in Tijuana? LOL Suggest tourists follow my advice to not flash wealth and stay in your Tijuana hotel or Club at night with lots of security around. . . Kind of describes the HK Club! Probably the safest club in Baja California!

    Another suspect was detained earlier after being wounded during the apparently random gun attacks Saturday.

    Prosecutors in the border state of Tamaulipas said the latest arrests came during raids that also freed 18 kidnap victims, four of whom are believed to be USA Citizens.

    In one raid on a house east of Reynosa, police found 10 kidnap victims, two of them Americans. One man had ben abducted three weeks ago and was still being held even though relatives had paid a ransom for his release, authorities said.

    A USA Woman and her 3-year-old daughter from Edinburgh, Texas, were found in a raid on another house. They had been kidnapped when they entered Mexico to search for the woman's husband, who had disappeared earlier.

    The other 14 kidnap victims were Mexican citizens, ranging from nurses and an engineer to store and business employees, prosecutors said. . .e.

    $27 to install rotors and pads is a very good deal.

    For average cars, not the super complex MBZs, BMWs ect, Tijuana's mechanics can diagnose the correct problems and fix them quickly and cheaply, when the best shops in OC would take months and many visits, but they could not find or fix the correct problems.

    I suggest bringing oil and filter to the Refracc shop on O 'Campo. They charge only $5 for labor, put the car on the rack and check for any other problems or preventive maintenance. Buy the right parts and bring them the next time. They can replace the parts for you quickly and cheaply.
    Captain do you know of a place to get good autobody and paint done in Tijuana??

    La Villa de Zaragoza or Hotel Ticuan.
