Yes, Santa Rosalía is 100% stopping all newer or suspected vehicles.
I have been thru there 3 times this month. They have stopped me every time. I’m not speeding or breaking the law.
You also better have your immigration in order. They are checking that too by calling immigration. I refused to give them my visa card as I didn’t break any laws or in an accident. They still checked my status.
I saw them again Thursday and told them see you next week with another car. They know I’m a transporter
With this being said if you are having people drive or trailer your cars down. You better make sure they are legal to work in Mexico and have all the papers in order. I’m not going to tell you the papers you need to legally drive someone else’s car into Mexico. But, if you are suspected of being hired to drive that car and not legal to work in Mexico or a US transportation company with proper paperwork and only a tourist visa. They told me they are impounding.
But, Federal police in Santa Rosalía has officers on the north and south of town. You are most likely going to get stopped and inspected.
Non imported cars caught on a commercial trailer or private trailer going south. Unless the owner is in the tow vehicle. You have a high chance or getting impounded.
All our US/Canada plated cars going north on transport. Now have more paperwork than we have had before. They have stopped the car transport every trip north too.
