Military Checkpoints

Home >> Mexico Information >> Military Checkpoints
Military CheckpointsMilitary and law enforcement checkpoints aimed at detecting narcotics, alien smuggling, and firearms traffic are located at various places throughout Mexico. Areas known to possess these checkpoints include the Yucatan peninsula, Chiapas, Oaxaca and Guerrero. Many checkpoints will have a red flag marker and are operated by uniformed officials; however, others will not be marked and are manned by police/military officers not in uniform. These checkpoints have “spiked devices” and are sometimes used to deflate tires of vehicles attempting to evade these checkpoints. If you are pulled over at a military checkpoint, remain calm. They will ask you a few questions. They are usually looking for drug paraphernalia or firearms. Politely answer all of there question and if you have nothing to hide you will be on you way momentarily.
