When you arrive in the U.S., it is important to remember that you are subject to the same traffic laws as all Americans are. Even if you are from the Republic of Mexico, you are not provided any more leniency than Americans receive when traveling in Mexico and breaking the traffic laws. Paisanaos and unknowledgable Americans might be brave enough to pay the “bite” in Mexico but under no circumstances should you attempt that in the U.S. Doing so will only get you in more serious, and I mean serious trouble.
In Texas for example, traffic laws and the fines if you break them are different from the rest of the U.S. So, for the sake of understanding, here are but a few of the laws, and the fines you must pay if you are caught breaking them. DWI means driving while drunk, as is a VERY serious charge.
•$100 USD$: Driving without a license
•$250 USD$: Driving without insurance
•$1,000 USD$: Driving While Intoxicated (DWI)
•$1,500 USD$: 2 or more DWI offenses
•$2,000 USD$: DWI conviction with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .16 or more
If you are charged with a DWI, it will remain on your record for up to 7 years. It could also prevent you from acquiring or renewing your U.S. Resident or Green Card.
The obvious thing to do is to obey the U.S. traffic laws. You are a guest, and just as an American is expected to obey Mexico’s traffic laws, so are you while in the U.S.
