We now have had 4 different couples stopped THIS month by the Police, at Caribe and Abasolo  and Walmart area.
The Police  demanded them to pay $100usd and they did . The last couple however called me. I told them not to pay. Then I called my husband and the Minister of Tourism, Pedro Aguilar 612 120 3292. Pedro in turn called the Chief of Police. In the meantime the Police got very threatening and apparently threatened to handcuff them if they didn't pay so they paid.
Then while the people were waiting for Javier and Pedro, the Police came back and slipped the money back in to them.
So if you are driving a rental car, head down to the Tourism office, grab an official complaint form in both english and spanish and show that to the cop. Pedro's cell is on there. I am also looking for tape to put over the name of the rental company on the car.

Never pay USD!  (100USD = 1500 pesos)  Never give them your license - just tell them you don’t have it with you.  Act dumb.  Just wave at them.  Good idea to get official complaint form whether you drive a rental or not!


I have just acted dumb in the past and waived and said goodbye in English and driven off.  They will follow honking that horrible bleep horn - just wave back and keep driving and do a few turns until they are back in traffic and go have a coffee.
