I wonder if there's more drunk driving in Mexico than here?

I'm back from Mexico after 4 days at an all inclusive resort.  It was the first time I'd ever been to one of those, and I pretty much tried to eat and drink as much as I possibly could.  If you know me you're probably thinking "of course he did."

The beach where I stayed on the Mayan Riviera.
The thing that really surprised me the most was actually what happened just after I got off the plane.  Right outside the airport in Cancun there are vendors with carts of beer for everyone waiting for cabs and buses.  Then as soon as I got into the van to the hotel the driver was also selling beers, out of an igloo cooler sitting next to him.  He was popping them open and handing them out with one hand, and driving with the other.

Having said that, the above title is a somewhat serious question.  The driver wasn't drinking; and while it was clearly a situation that would have been illegal here, it seemed perfectly normal there.

And don't worry mom, I made it home safe and sound.
