you always hear lot's of stories about Tampico,the best one we heard was a group of Fortravel

got pinched for $500 for each person ,so much for guided tours

we got off for $90(diesel in left lane) the first stop and $5(wanted money) the second stop ( which was worth it seeing how pissed my wife was) the cop told her get back in the rv very sternly,and she hopped right back in!

first's all of them

we stopped in Merida made several copies of my driver license to give to them (never stopped again)

the second trip to Mx we were stopped in Guadalahara and they gave us a ticket (left lane diesel again) with no last name on it or address (my wife filmed it) the locals said throw it away

so we did
