But it's good to have in a DROP WALLET with a few peso and dollar bills. I don't carry a drop wallet for the police. I want someone to see the DL and think its my real wallet. I also don't carry photocopied/laminated fake DL's for the reasons you mentioned. In the five or six encounters I've had with Mexican police over the years I've never had to break any laws to resolve a matter. THEY did, however.
