A potentially very dangerous game

Unless you're a very experienced driver on Mexican highways, speak and understand Spanish and have informed yourself very well about the current warfare and terrorism ... I think it's foolish to be driving through Mexico to the border crossings in Texas. About the military checkpoints: they're not all that safe these days. Soldiers are jumpy. A group of soldiers murdered a US Citizen driving near Acapulco on Highway 200 late last year. Such murders and attempted cover-ups afterwards aren't commonplace, but when approaching a checkpoint it's very difficult for inexperienced (and some experienced) drivers to know whether they're being stopped by terrorists or actual military or legitimate police. It's potentially a very deadly game.
