I see an easy mordifa coing up for not having an fire extinguisher n the car or the emergency  signals.. Is that something separate from the blinkers? In France you have to have all kinds of emergency stuff incluidng a yellow jacket.. I woner what that covers here...Anyone knows?

In Mexico, and about half the states in the US, prohibit a GPS mounted on the windshield. That is why Garmin and others has a mount for the dashboard. My cell phone using Waze is mounted via a magnet attached to one of my ac vents.

My Garmin has trouble connecting unless it is under the windshield.  I can't even reach it when driving, unlike the built in ones.  One can fiddle with those easier than either the windshield mount or the car phone mount.  Just sayin', the heads up is appreciated.

There are the writers of the law and the enforcers of the law…….two different universes.

We went into that parallel universe this evening driving from Ajijic to San Juan Cosala where on the way there were transito police parked on both sides of the road standing outside with clipboard in hand staring us down looking for anything reason to flags us over.
