Living so close to Mexico, it’s hard not to be tempted to head south for a weekend getaway. Maybe a quick trip to Rocky Point for the weekend? If you haven’t lived in the state for very long, or otherwise weren’t aware of it, Mexico requires you to have Mexican Auto Insurance.
Laws are Different in Mexico
The Mexican legal system does not treat accidents the same as we do in the United States. Therefore, even with the most comprehensive auto insurance policy, you’ll find yourself without coverage. Mexican insurance is your only option.
Under Mexican law, accidents are both a civil and criminal offense. If you’re involved in a car accident south of the border, all involved parties are presumed guilty and taken immediately to jail, notwithstanding a medical emergency. When it is determined who was at fault, that person may be jailed until he or she can prove they can pay for the damages. So if you are at fault for the accident and don’t have Mexican auto insurance, you will likely find yourself in a Mexican jail for a while. Even a small accident could put a serious wrench in your vacation plans or day trip. Vanyo Insurance Group has the knowledge and experience to help you get Mexican auto insurance that ensures your travel is legal and safe.
