What is it with the transportation officials on that side of Mexico? I was on a similar route as you in January and was stopped twice around Coatzocoalcos while looking for a hotel. the first stop inspected my paperwork and didn't find anything to fine me for. The next stop the officer said I didn't signal. He threatened a citation or detention and motioned for me to follow him, he was on a scooter. I just made a u-turn and got back on the highway.

Then returning through Mexico just the past couple of weeks, I rode the Pacific side up to Acupolco, over to Touluca and then 57 back to the US and didn't get stopped once, although I was almost blinded by the scenery on Zipolite beach!
