How to Drive in Mexico Without Getting Into Trouble
8 tips on how to drive in Mexico --
1. If you have an accident without insurance and it is your fault, and there were personal injuries or damage to the roadways, you will go to jail.
To avoid delays and legal trouble, you can purchase a day or two of car insurance for less than $20 and let the insurance personnel take care of everything. Just be sure that you understand your coverage when you buy it. If you plan on driving at all in any Latin American country, get insurance in that country first.
2. Mexican drivers (especially in large cities) are more aggressive than the average American driver, and are more active in their habits.
Be alert and watch for signs that a driver is trying to change lanes or get around you. Turn signals are rarely used, so be on the lookout.
