Active checkpoint for the westbound lane. Most cars were stopped by unmarked and masked men. Not sure if they were cops or government. May as well be locals or some cartel/gang. No police or government cars present.
The situation seemed casual enough though.

A few cones and a 'removable tope' (Big old tire) not stopping anyone going either direction. Smile and wave.

Report Check-In

We were stopped today. Just wanted to check the car, i think they were searching for drugs. Asked where we come from and where we are going and what our status is in Mexico (Tourist). Did not want to see paperwork. Looked in the trunk, inside the car and under the hood. Friendly guys. They checked many cars and trucks. Took about 5 minutes.

Nothing happening here today, we were going west.

We weren't stopped going east, but we were stopped going west. Pulled us off to the side and looked in our cabinets and under the seat cushions and under the bed. Kept telling my husband that his eyes looked red and he must be high (he was not). We told them we don't like drugs (but we like tequila!) and they let us go.

Friendly guys, asked where I came from, where I’m going and sent me on my way. Westbound on a Sunday afternoon

It’s some squad of criminal investigation crew. They stopped us and asked where we came from and where we are going. The lady opened rear door and knocked on panels but nothing more. Then they said they we could go. Going East

Not pulled over here, waved thru. Were stopped just outside Juchitan (spelling?) by state police but we pretended we spoke no Spanish at all, he asked us if we were on vacation while our dog barked at him and then he let us go.

Reductors and cops in place, but were not stopped.

We didn’t get stopped. Another car was being searched thoroughly with everyone standing outside the car. It was Federal.

Same for me. Pulled the car apart. One guy seemed like a dog with a bone while his mates just looked on realising I had nothing. Was asked some really dumb questions like why did i have a platform in the rear! Sheesh.
