If you are traveling into Mexico, you are required by law to have Mexican Automobile Insurance. It is possible that you are covered by your U.S. Policy (physical damage only, Liability is still required by Mexican Law). If you want to ask your carrier you'll need to tell them that Puerto PeÃ±asco is approximately 62 Miles across the U.S./Mexican Border, and is declared a "Free Zone".
Having an auto accident in Mexico can be a felony, rather than a misdemeanor.
Whenever you are involved in an automobile accident in Mexico, you must immediately be able to prove financial responsibility.
This may only be done in either of two ways:
- Immediate Cash to cover all damages OR
- An approved Mexican insurance policy.
All Citizens driving in Mexico are subject to the laws of Mexico. Your U.S. liability policy, even if it bears a limited Mexican endorsement, is not recognized by Mexican authorities.
