    Taxi crime

    by JackRussel Written Oct 4, 2003

    Avoid at all costs taking taxis on the street.
    There's been really bad cases of robberies, sexual assaults, and other violent crimes (including killings) perpetrated by taxi drivers and/or accomplices. See Lonely Planet Travelers Book for Mexico for more info.

    Rather, call renowned taxi firms, and ask:
    -name and ID number of the taxi driver coming to pick you up
    - number plate of the taxi
    You can also ask someone reliable (ex: hotel clerk) to note the plate number and where you intend to go.

    Taxi firms:

    Supersitio 160
    Tel. 5271-9146

    Taxi-Mex
    5538-1440

    Taxi Radio Mex
    5584-0571

    Be VERY careful on the Mexico City Metro

    by H3ath3r Updated Jan 29, 2006

    My boyfriend and I both had our wallets (travel wallets, belt style, worn under the clothing)stolen on the Metro within 2 minutes. Please, if you ride the Metro keep your hand on your wallet at all times and do not get on if severval people try to push you onto the Metro. Several people pushed us into the Metro and then the Metro was so crowded we didn`t even realize our stuff was gone until it was too late!

    The city’s traffic moves in a very fast pace, so be observant when crossing the streets. In Mexico City the cars and trucks seem to have the right of way rather than the pedestrians. I saw so many close calls, I was surprise that I didn’t see anyone get hit.

    Mounted Police

    O80 is the number to dial in the event of an emergency.
    The same principles apply in Mexico as in any other country.
