Re: [trpt2345] On Southern Mexico

Believe it of not we made it from the eastern outskirts on the Puebla autopista through Santa Fe in one hour during the rush hour from 4:00PM to 5:00PM last Thursday afternoon. However, our game plan for the future when we drive to Chiapas is to drive to Toluca from Ajijic on a Saturday and on through the city on Sunday morning when there is virtually no traffic.

The last time we drove through Mexico City we made the mistake of driving in the slow lane and a couple of their thug cops pulled us over for some mordida. Friends native to the city gave us two pieces of valuable advice. Stay off of the pereficos which the cops cruise for out-of-staters, taking the internal circuit instead and stay in the middle and fast lanes during rush hours as the cops are loath to stop someone in the fast lanes going with the flow of traffic since they might start a riot.
