Are the Police Shaking Down Drivers?

 Are the Police Shaking Down Drivers?

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.
