Many of them will be falsely confident that they have proper liability protection in case of an accident in that country, the Insurance Information Institute warns. When p l a n n i n g to drive south of the border, U.S. residents should check with their insurance agent or broker about obtaining an official Mexican automobile liability insurance policy. Unless properly, informed and insured, their pleasant vacations could turn into costly nightmares. Tourists should be warned: "Don't drive into Mexico without auto liability insurance from a Mexican company!" Most Americans are unaware that only insurance companies located in Mexico are recognized under M e x i c a n law. And contracts of insurance written by non-Mexican companies are not in force in that country. . A tourist involved In an accident in Mexico could be faced with a large cash outlay, informal detainment, or even jail, under the strict provision's of the Mexican law -even if he has the. "Mexican auto endorsement" attached to his U.S. policy. The " M e x i c a n , endorsement" on some U.S. policies is designed for a limited purpose and its application to vacation use should be thoroughly discussed with an insurance a'gent or broker before.a person drives across the border. - W i t h o u t proper Mexican coverage, 'the motorist has four alternatives if he is involved in an auto accident which results in even minor personal injury or property damage. They are: 1--Post a .cash bond with the local officials. ; 2-Post a commercial bond from a Mexican bonding company (a possibility if the tour- TRAVEL ist speaks S p a n i s h , knows s o m e o n e locally and has enough money). 3--Contact a U.S. insurance agent, via telephone or telegram (but, under Mexican law, it is illegal for the agent to settle the claim in Mexico. He may, however, advance the cash necessary to post bond). 4--Face legal detention and impounding of the automobile. As visitors to M e x i c Americans are bound by Mexican laws, just as Mexicans t r a v e l i n g in the U.S. bound by its Isws. Compliance with those laws can make for a happier vacation in Mexico. Here are some additional pointers for traveling south of thebordler --Obtain a tourist card from the office of the Mexican Bureau of Tourism, the Mexican Consul or at the border. --If you have an auto accident in Mexico, look for help from one of .the green Turis- mo jeeps that patrol the highways. The driver will assist insureds in contacting an adjuster for the Mexican company which issued you insurance. --If no patrol car arrives in a reasonable time, call ths nearest police officer. The policy should be shown to the chief of police, and no officer should be paid for his .services. That is the responsibility of the Mexican i n s u r company. · Rocket Test Delayed ADELAIDE, A u s t r a (UPI) -- Winds gusting-to more than 150 miles an hour S a t u r d a y delayed for fourth time the firing of a joint European space rocket at the Woomera testing range. enjoy ah" 11-day Hawaiian · " » , . , Huge Savings on floor: Covering!
