"If you get a ticket while driving" Legal Tip by monica71
Legal, Puerto Vallarta: 5 reviews and 2 photos
We did not have a problem driving in the area and in the remote locations we visited, but this is something that our car rental agency warned us about when we got the car.
If you are stopped by the local police while driving and if they want to give you a ticket, don't pay for it on the spot. Just ask the police officer to write down the car plate number, rental car agency information and get a copy of the ticket. Once you are back in Puerto Vallarta, call you car rental agency and they will help you pay the ticket.
Corruption is big in Mexico and sometimes police officers are just trying to make a quick buck by issuing faked speeding tickets to tourists (you will notice that there is no difference between the plates of a car rental from the car plates of locals; this is done to protect tourists from abusive police officers). Don't fall for this!
