Based on what I have been seeing in Opinion Sonora, there are frequent checkpoints at night in Guaymas. Be advised.


I have seen two articles that state that the legal limit for driving under the influence is .40. Is that true? By what measure?


Man, if that's the same means of measure as the States, I dont have anything to worry about. That would be five times the legal limit in most states.

"Unless a person has developed a very high tolerance for alcohol, a BAC rating of 0.20% represents very serious intoxication. In general most first-time drinkers are unconscious by about 0.15%. A range of 0.35% to 0.40% usually represents potentially fatal alcohol poisoning."

.4 is the result for a breath analyzer and does not correspond to a blood test result. If you have over 1 glass pf wome or beer you will fail the breath test in Mexico, according to the internet quoting Mx sources

Nothing a few pesos can't fix.

First time ever in SC my boat captain got pulled over at 3am taking a senorita back to Guaymas. She is sitting on my lap in the passenger seat and he ran a red light that turned fast.

He gets out of the truck and is talking back and forth with the cop for a good 5-7 mins. He then leans into the car and asks for a $20 and off we go.

Half the population of SC would not be able to drive after 10:00 AM if they set up a checkpoint in the middle of town..

Is it really EVER OKAY TO DRINK AND DRIVE??? That answer would be ABSOLUTELY NO!!!

especially if a drunk driver killed """YOUR""" wife, husband, kid or grandkid!
Ya live it up..... GOD bless your soul if ya kill someone... I don't think ya get a do-over!

Shouldn't complain the police are so corrupt.

SURE, Just pay them off!!! (Not everyone pays, thank goodness!)

Hilarious! GREAT STORY! one can drive SMASHED with a passenger who has some LADY on his lap ( surely seat belted in of course!) gets pulled over and just buys his way out FOR 20 BUCKS...
BEST OF ALL YA CONTINUED DRIVING!

I'm NO SAINT! did plenty in my younger days and I'm so thankful I never killed anyone or myself.

THANK GOODNESS I GREW UP RETIRED AND DONT FEEL MY RETIREMENT GAVE ME A FREE PASS TO DRIVE DRUNK WHENEVER~.Big problem in SC!

I FEEL SAFER DRIVING AT 2 IN THE MORNING THEN DRIVING AFTER 7:00 pm any day in SAN CARLOS.

lIKE ITS PERFECTLY NORMAL TO DE DRUNK AND DRIVE.

Aside from another wonderful JZ post, do you really feel the town is nearly as bad as you say? Come on. Sure, people do drive around with alcohol in their system, but besides a few accidents that hurt, or even killed, the individual driving alone, I really can't even recall a single incident (although I am sure there have been a few) of an intoxicated person causing injury in the last decade. I am not condoning driving impaired, even though a lot of us can do it pretty well. Many here have a built up tolerance. Hopefully we'r not having to let our wife drive - j.k.! Thankfully we have learned our fairly safe streets here and have learned to drive defensively. You just don't see many accidents here. I'm not going to give a don't drink and drive lecture or what you should do, as you're an adult and know better. I'm just saying that the previous post is not reality and you really shouldn't be that worried - although you should always drive defensively here expecting anything to happen, and if you drive too slow or make big wrong turns then you could have a problem.

Funny story...over in the state of Chihuahua we were driving through a sobriety checkpoint and the officer had my husband blow into his curled up hand that he held by his nose.  Additionally, I can't help but think that the numbers can be fixed to whatever the policeman wants them to be. It's all about the bribe.

Well, I actually have pictures of the wrecked car and the hole in the wall at the Tetakawi hotel (used to be Best Western), and the injured (young) drunk driver laying on the ground from his collision with the hotel at 7 a.m.  not more than 4 years ago.

The young man wrecked his daddy’s very expensive new car while driving drunk through San Carlos.


There have been a number of incidents of drunk drivers having accidents coming home in early daylight hours from the beach bars, La Salsa when it was still open, near the CyberCo curve.


Too many stories to relate here. But PLENTY of young, drunk drivers at all times of day in our retirement community.  And yes, they are injuring their companions in the car.


There was also the young waitress that worked at Panchito Villa restaurant that was killed crossing the street in front of the restaurant a few years ago, because of a distracted young woman driver texting on her phone.


Tony, the veggie guy, lost his father to a drunk driver in the vicinity of Ruth and Rudy’s Bakery a few years ago.


The dangers are real.

Forgot about the hotel collision. Yes, the young kids have had their share of accidents. That really is a time to not let your guard down and remember that they have been drinking ALL night. With shorter days they have longer nights. The highway is a serious concern if you think you are going to beat border traffic by leaving early in the day.

I got pulled over last year in my Jeep when I was down for the Hammer Down tournament.  Didn't do anything wrong, middle of the day, and got lit up.  Held my sticker out the side of the Jeep as it has no glass other than the windshield, and was waved on.  Didn't even have to put my beer down. :D

I was wondering if anyone was ever going to mention the REAL REASON they sell so many stickers.

Years ago I made the mistake of driving drunk coming home from Guaymas and got pulled over. One of the officers got in my car and drove me home and left my car in the driveway. No request for money, just a request that I don't do that again. I love Mexico!
