Zihua Transit Police

We were stopped last winter leaving Palma Real golf course. Our offense? Not wearing seat belts. Same shakedown, pay him 600 pesos or take a trip to the Zihua PD station. We just wanted to go to our friend's condo and have a cool beverage after a round of golf, so we just paid.

Had a few thoughts afterwards. 1) I could have recorded the cop from the back seat on my phone and I don't think he would have noticed, but if I showed it to the wrong official that could be dangerous. 2) There are seat belt laws here in Mexico. What about all the kids in the back of a pickup truck? LOL seat belts.

There are no seat belt laws in Guerrero. Nor in Ixtapa or Z.

Yes, there are seat belt laws. There are also helmet laws for motorcycle riders.


There is at least 6 people [locals] who told me there are no seat belt laws. If you can point me to something in print that would be great.

Not sure why someone who doesn't know the correct use of "there is" vs "there are" would question me. :stirpot:

I'm a local who not only has read the law but who has seen it enforced. If the ayuntamiento's website weren't MIA I'd show you the law in the Bando de Policía y Buen Gobierno. Título Décimo Segundo, Capítulo VI, Artículo 329, Sección IV
