The drive from border to RP is perilous!

Getting through Sonoita was a piece of cake. We have been driving down here for years but this was the first drive that was truly scary. Truck after truck and some cars going 110-120 mph pulling trailers kept passing 3 cars in a row that were going 75 mph. They were barely feet from our car!! We saw several near head on collisions. This was Friday, daytime. Years ago we were the first car to come up to a head on collision. American kids vs a truck with a Mexican family. Beer cans and bodies everywhere. Quite a few injured and we rendered aid and called for help. It was nighttime. I don't want to ever see that again. It's not worth getting to town a half hour faster. I hope the drive home is safer. What is wrong with people? The police should set up a speed trap in the middle of the two towns to save lives! They could also make a lot of money! True speeders.

Yet most of the people on these boards claim nobody ever speeds and the cops that stop them are all corrupt.......
LOL, the only one who don't speed are the delivery trucks or Mexican's driving older cars.

Once cleared of Sonoyta, most US plated cars are going north of 75mph with many doing 85-100mph.
Way too many trucks pulling toys or trailers have no business even trying to pass lines of cars, I've seen too many close calls
or the aftermath of one of them not quite making it.
You are correct many of the Sonoyta Policia tend to look at corruption and preying on visitors as an income booster.

No they don’t , you purposeful instigator.

99.9% of the comments on this board and thread revolve around shake downs and corrupt cops in Sonoyta pimping people who have OBEYED the law , stopped at stop signs and have driven the speed limit and still have been illegally pulled over for mordida and extortion.

And, 99.9 of those same people agree that there are assholes who drive way to fast and reckless when they get past Sonoyta.

We are talking two completely separate conversations here you instigator little guy.

Show us all 1 time whenever anybody has been ticketed within 2 miles outside of Sonoyta. It has never happened because the cops do not run speed traps outside of the 40 km crawl and stop sign trap of Sonoyta.

If they were at all interested in public safety, they would have a heyday pulling people over and taking them to jail for driving like idiots after they get out of town. That is not their interest. It’s the easy money, with their fat bellies and their slow squad cars, that have no interest in pulling over real criminal traffic violations.

And you know it, you dipshit

Hit the border about 10:30 Sunday morning. Got the green light like everyone else. No stop at the National Guard. Eased through town didn't see one cop. Did have one A$$HOLE headed North out in the passing lane making Southbound traffic pull over to the side, otherwise there would have been a head on!!!

You know you have lost the debate when you resort to name calling. 99.9% of people claim to be little angels on the road. When they rightfully get stopped for speeding or other unlawful activity, they proclaim their innocence. Most people hate the police until they need them. All police are not perfect, but the vast majority of them are honest humans trying to do an incredibly difficult job.
The reason they patrol the city is that is what they are paid to do. Speeding is infinitely more dangerous in the populated areas. I am surprised you don't know that. Actually, I lied, I am not surprised you don't know that.
