Driving Tips

We’ve collected these Mexico driving tips to prepare you for a potential road trip you may take in the future. With these safety tips, you’ll be more ready for the road conditions. You will also be ready for the foreign rules of the road when making your trek from the United States.

Drivers in Mexico may travel via the libre (free) road or the quota (toll) road. If travelers decide to travel to Mexico, the US Department of State recommends travelers use toll roads and avoid driving at night. Road fatalities are far higher at night in Mexico than by day due to poor street lighting.

Mexico toll roads are safer and in better shape than free roads but can be expensive. If you have an accident or come across dangerous situations on the road, call Mexico’s version of 911, which is 066.

If you receive a traffic fine while on Mexican roads, these can be paid at the local police station.
