I have one or two but the problem here is your hole is very small, i.e. it is one thing where a state trooper is coming at you with radar and sending the signal which you can receive and slow down, it is another where the radar is pointing at the rear of your car so little notice or signal until its way too late. Better to know the spots where they put the radar and nowadays with so much traffic there arent too many places to speed.

Well known speed traps:

Ixtlahuacan with VW Jetta and tripod in front of Buenavista, tripod hidden behind post
Gonzalez Gallo passing Lazaro Cardenas
Fixed points on Periferico (front of Federal Courts, before Acueducto)
Juan Palomar y Arias between Universidad and Sanzio fixed camera
Vallarta coming out of tunnel towards Guad in front of Costco Galerias
Vallarta in front of cemetery right by Periferico both ways usually (Guad side)
New libramiento from airport to Zapotlanejo (VW Jetta car and tripod)

Read your ticket so you dont get fined for speeding in the same places more than once as that isnt too smart, learn from your mistakes.

Thanks Spence, was just wondering especially heading toward Colima and around airport.

Spencer the fixed sites can you beat them by using the covers that hide your tag?

You will soon be informed by a transito, or other authority, that covering your license plate with anything is prohibited. We were warned & removed the plastic ASAP.

Yes you can use covers but under the new law they can tow a vehicle that uses plate covers, I removed mine to avoid problems and dont drive crazy as well as know where the radar spots are.
