Mexico City: Drivers Ignore Red Lights And Traffic Cops PDF Print E-mail

Q: We were planning a trip with a senior church group to warm Mexico this month. It’s mostly touring the capital city. We’re worried now because friends told us to stay away. They say walking the streets, day and night, is just too dangerous for we slower, older tourists. What do you say about it? JJL, Miami FL

A: It’s true that Mexico City may sometimes be dangerous to the elderly tourist. Traffic can be very heavy and less orderly than in U.S. big cities. Also, there are young street criminals, and the physically-challenged are often prime targets. However, if you follow all safety and traffic rules, it’s well worth the visit for the colorful entertainment, local foods and city sights.
