Driving in Mexico Addendum

Okay, so I described my experience driving in Mexico in a recent blog post, but what I saw yesterday deserves special mention. While driving on the toll road from Pátzcuaro to Ixtapa a car coming from the opposite direction passed another vehicle on a curve, crossing the double yellow line. The other vehicle pulled to the shoulder to give some room for this dicey maneuver and avoid a head-on collision with us. This isn't unusual on Mexican roads and normally not worth of comment. Except that the car that pulled to the shoulder to let the other car pass was a Michoacan State Police vehicle! Why they waste paint on double yellow lines, I don't know.
