RE: Possible Speed Trap in La Paz...

On Cop stuff, when you smell a shakedown, use Jim Black´s method to the letter, with one exception...SHOW your driver´s license, but do not hand it over. "What´s the problem? I wasn't doing whatever, I don't understand, let's go downtown," all of that followed by 4 $50 peso notes, one at a time from the special pocket... From the moment the cop has your DL in his hands, he is empowered, don't let that happen. - Patrick----Todos Santos


Many people said, "Don't pay them, it only makes the problem worse for all of us." I agree, but admit the urge to quickly end the problem with money and get away. Others said, "we're going to the station," and the officer let them go when it was obvious he was not going to get his mordita. Others said it cost them more after they got to the station, but at least the officer didn't get it (or did they...?).

My takeaway from all this? Next time, I think I'll take my chances on going to the station if I'm sure it's a shake down. - Alan
