Living so close to Mexico, you may find yourself south of the border for vacations and visits. As you may already be aware, it’s actually a requirement to have Mexican car insurance in the event that you should find yourself in an accident on the other side of the border. Your regular policy just simply will not be enough.
It’s important to note that the Mexican legal system does not treat accidents the same as we do in the United States. Accidents are considered both a civil and criminal offense. Under Mexican law, if you’re involved in an accident, all involved parties are presumed guilty and taken to jail. Who was really at fault is determined later. If you caused the accident and don’t have a Mexican auto insurance policy, you could be jailed until you prove you can pay for damages. Without proper insurance, even a small accident could put a serious damper on your vacation or day trip.
If you are planning a trip into Mexico, and you will be driving there with your own vehicle, make sure you obtain the right insurance. Imes Insurance Associates have the knowledge and experience to help you find the coverage that ensures your travel is legal and safe. Contact us today for a quote.
