My son got jacked up by a "traffic cop" that they station on the road from Cancun to Playa Carmen. Said he was going 150 KPH on a potholed road that even Baja racers couldn't go 150 KPH even if they tried. He was very specific, give me $100 American. My son had no American dollars, so he was threatening to take him to "jail". He did pull out a 500 Peso bill, told the "cop" that was all he had left, and the "cop" grumbled something in spanish, took the bill, stuffed it into his pocket, and waved him on. That part of Mexico is off my travel list until they clean up their act, and that includes crooked "cops" and crooked bars that are substituting cheap dangerous commercial grade alchohol. Don't go and spend your money and they will get the message pretty quickly.
