For the past few years there have been "speed traps" in Puerto Vallarta, right near the airport exits on both sides of the road. I got caught in one about 8 years ago, before I bought my property in Sayulita and got my fm3. They have one of those portable radar signs that flash your speed. It's kind of funny during rush hours, because one cop stands in the roadbed furiously waiving drivers down--ALL DRIVERS. It's like shooting ducks in a barrel to them. A few weeks ago, when they waived me over, I just waived back and kept going. They just let me go. I've learned from some local Mexican friends that they do the same thing. there is no way they can catch everybody! BTW, I absolutely was not speeding, nor are most of the people who pull over and have to negotiate.I guess am I not the only one that has done that "wave bye"
