BAJA UPDATE - Know Your Rights with Traffic Violations.



Many people have experienced or know people who have been stopped for perceived or true traffic violations.  Some have been told that they can pay the officer and go on their way.

DO NOT pay the offending officer(s) anything, Instead hand then the document "NOTICE TO MEXICAN POLICE OFFICERS / AVISO A USTED OFICIAL DE POLICIA" (Link below) to read.

Keep this document with your vehicle registration and give it to the officer if or when you get stopped. Do not pay a mordita/bribe, hand the officer the letter and explain that you will voluntarily follow the officer to the local police station, where the can have the pay the required fine.
