But I really think that we are concentrating too much on that kind of a problem,.... the risk of an accident is MUCH higher. This morning, in nearby Nayarit,again 24 people died in a bus accident. Here is the story : http://www.informador.com.mx/primera/2012/391245/6/suman-24-muertos-por-accidente-de-autobus-en-nayarit.htm
Last year, in the same state of Nayarit (and that is only one of 31), more people died in a bus accident.
Very recently, I went to PV twice, and it made me nervous to see the driving styles and very bad accidents (every trip),...
Two years ago, I was on the bus to Guadalajara, sitting behind the driver (on top of the mountain, after leaving Chapala and heading to Ixtlahuacan), I saw a whole wheel (not just the tyre) passing by us (faster than the bus), and kind of funny, it was ours !! And until some stupid passenger started shouting out not to panick, we were calm.
A month later coming down that same mountain, going into Chapala, the bus got filled with smoke (brakes ??, don't care, it wasn't good ).
And remember the bus crash on the road to Guad, only a few months ago,....
And being a European, I have seen my share of bad drivers in my life (me being one of them).
No thank you, I am almost always sitting behind the driver, near the exit. And from having worked 15 years as a flight attendant, I am ready for the bracing position (another precaution you can take).
So, let us all together be more worried about that now (we need something to worry about) and try to stay alive as long as we possibly can (being death lasts so very long, better to postpone it).
God bless Mexican busses (and maybe also the Greyhound).

you are so right. There are lots of bad bus accidents . My house keeper´s son was badly hurt in an accident between Tuxtla Gutierrez and Mexico and the bus took very little responsability. Not only that but many of the suitcases where robbed and so where the passengers.
Another time I arrived in Oaxaca just i time for the funeral of the uncle of one of my friends´who was killed when the river went to sleep and the bus went tumbling down the mountain. I had to take that same route back and did not sleep well on that ride.
There are lots of nasty accidents especially on the cheaper lines that have their drivers drive way too long without a secod driver.
Both of these accidents were on the Cristobal Colon line.
The man who was hurt did not realize how badly hurt he was and it is now three years later cannot work because of his injuries and the insurrance of the bus line does not want to accept any responsabilitie because this was not reported the same day....
