We’d read about protestors closing down toll booths and letting people through for free, but we hadn’t seen any until we got close to Hermosillo. In this video, we drive through a toll booth for free and wave to some protestors.
The 2017 protests in Mexico were due to a gas price hike of 14-20% that went into effect on January 1st. We expected for the protestors to be angry, and in fact, I believe they were angry with their government, but they weren’t angry at their fellow countrymen or us, for that matter. For that we were really grateful.
