No drug lord wants a DP. If a drug lord was going to steal a vehicle it would be a Pickup truck or Jeep. Maybe your TOAD? A DP sticks out like a sore thumb. Police corruption on the highways is still a problem, but rare with Federales. They purged them a couple of years back and bought in the RCMP to train the remainder. Municipal Police & Transistos are still a problem. There are strategies to deal with those. Bribing a police officer in Mexico is, BTW, a crime.
I suggest you avoid travel to Canada if you have a DP, you may be murdered and your rig burned to the ground Lyle And Marie McCann, Edmonton Couple, Still Missing After Nearly A Year
. Those Canadians are a murderous bunch, eh?
