A very valid point for sure. This is certainly a situation that has also played on my mind from time to time. Actually, probably more so than getting into some altercation with a cartel shooting. I mean how many of us even give this a second thought? Even if we did, I wouldn't even know where to start. This could happen anywhere and anytime along a cross border trip, even without a car and if you are flying, or taking the bus, this could happen, what a fix! How in the world does one prove that he / she was not part of the plan. The only answer I have is to co operate with the authorities and pointedly ask them to allow the car to be followed to the end point and then get the “perps” whoever they may be . . . . . . . I just can't see that working, as it would be like letting the smuggler go, wouldn't it? This seems to really be a Catch 22 situation. Even if you asked for a wipe down of your hands and or clothing, that wouldn't be the answer as the authorities could simply say . . . . "you stood by" Seems to be a real "OH Boy" moment! Just another "Black Bean" in the jar possibility, of the many out there, that we just don't normally think about, let alone what to do about such a situation . . . . . . isn't it? What would one do, especially here in Mexico? At least NOB there has to be proof, even if it does reach a court stage, . . . . . . proof beyond a shadow of doubt (supposedly) exists. But here . . . . . . . . . . .
