No, at least not this Wednesday, December 22. On that day, Mexico celebrates its National Police Day. Back in the 50’s and 60’s, it was a tradition to gift our cops. You could see the street corner traffic cops stool surrounded by gifts. These days, the custom is to give cash to them while at a traffic stop. They will hand you a piece of paper in English and Spanish, stating it is their day, and you are expected to pitch in a few bucks. This has been authorized by the city government, so don’t be upset! See it as their Christmas gift.
