Senate approved it, congress will enact it within 180 days. Finally a discount.
That sounds like good news for the traveler.
Any word about the corrupt cops lowering their demands?
For motorcycles or all traffic?
That's great news! Not that any self respecting "adventurer" would ever be caught dead riding on a toll-road You wouldn't happen to know if they changed rates for trailers? I am a real adventurer, I like to put my bike on a trailer and then trailer it down the toll-road.
Yes, but is a loooooong way to go!!
Nothin wrong with saving your marriage by hitting the cuotas on the way home after a lonnnnnng stay in MX. and besides they can be the very best way to get to the next "good" road/town! See corresponding discussion r.e., the benefits that come with a cuota ticket, such as towing to nearest town on Artes "Mexico Safe thread"
Agreed, the Mexican toll roads get a bad rap, but where else in North America can you go 90 mph (145 kmh) all day long with out getting a speeding ticket? It can be fun on a very fast MC. I'm about to trade my old Jeep in for a fast 6 cylinder 4 door sedan, specifically for the purpose of hauling ass on Mexican toll roads.
...which is spanish for "3 years."
That sounds about right. Should be free like Colombia
+1 Nothing like the Grand Funk Railroad Quota (57) to D.F. on the C-14; the fun is worth the price of admission.
Yes.. the toll roads lack the charm and adventure of the "careterra libre", but they are fast and safe. The violence and crime that was once of concern only if you were a drug dealer or a cop is now slowly spilling over into regular society, so the cuota can make sense.Besides... if you want to get to central America fast you can blow through Mexico in 6-7 days if you take the cuota which is lightly traveled and where you can keep up a speed of 60mph or better all day long.
Now that we are on the subject of Latin America has anyone found a decent GPS map for any of the south of the border countries? It looks like pretty slim pickings to me.
When faced with 400kms libre with a tope convention and mating season in full swing or 200kms libre in pouring rain with a 5 hour time frame and some extra pesos in the pocket, I will opt for the quota.
It's a tough call but sometimes ya gotta do what ya gotta do, tuck tail between legs, and honk it for home.
This is what is described in Sun Tzu's "The Arte and Andres of Tope Guerra"!
