    Living in central Texas, I've been to Mexico many times, but recently someone was telling me a "fact" that I wanted to confirm. I was warned that I should stop riding in the cabs down there since if we were in a wreck, the cab's passenger is responible and not the driver. Basically stating that since you hired the cab, you're responsible.

    True or False?

    I've been there a few times myself and this is the first I have heard of it. Seems very unlikely.

    itís an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    I have spent quite a bit of time there, and I have never heard of that.

    I seriously doubt that it is true. Think of how many "accidents" would happen every day if it were.

    Why?? So you could pay for their vehicle to be repaired? I don't see that's a money making scheme.

    How many people just want the exact amount it takes to repair the vehicle?

    Thats retarded. Who in the right mind would approve of that. I think if that were true, there wouldnt be any taxi business in Mexico.

    Sounds more like a local sheriff trying to get his palms greased.

    It is not uncommon to be stopped for speeding, then be told the ticket will cost you $13 payable right then on the spot, without any written documentation. Coincidently, $13 would be enough to pay for lunch for 2, the officer and his partner in the squad car.
