Thanks a lot. Nice pics, and a great view on the marvellous landscape. Cuota = toll?

Why do they say "km/h" on the speed limit signs? Is it close to the US or sth?

No, it's free, but the federal goverment actually is buiding a new highway, with toll.

Well, the "km/h" (Kilómetros por hora / Kilometers per hour) signs are present in all mexican highways, wherever you are traveling.

In US the signs are: "mph"

Yes:
cuota = toll
libre = free

the US is very close, but as far as I know all speed limit signs in Mexico have the "km/h", no matter if they are far from the border

That's quite useless, isn't it? I mean, close to the border I can understand you add it, but if you have a nationwide standard you can leave it out IMO (expect near the border of course)

Well, most of the cars in Mexico have the speedometer in MPH with big numbers, and
in the lower part they have with small numbers KPH,
maybe is just for drivers don't get confused.

Is it allowed to sit in the back of a pick-up truck on the motorway?

Well, I don't think so, but if you do it, it's on your own risk.

And maybe is a question of lucky if you're not trapped by the federal police with this kind of beautiful patrols....

Is it common to have direct acces to the Autopista as shown in the pics above, and not via controlled acces with ramps?

I think that it's the other way.. The big numbers are in kph, and the small numbers are in mph.. I mean.. at least every recent car I know has the numbers in kph.. =S. It is pretty useless to have the big numbers in miles.

More pictures, from the mexican and latin american forum:

The new Mexico City's bypass.

Mexico City - Toluca



More pictures soon!

@ChrisZwolle: In some urban areas it's common. In the rural autopistas is less common, but you may see some direct entrance to the road.

In the United States they use Miles, here (and most of the world) we us Kilometers, so as soon as you cross the US border down to Mexico you`ll see `KPH`signs, and viceversa.

As someone already said it's quite common in urban areas, I think this is so because many urban "freeways" in Mexico weren't planned to be so. They first were normal avenues, eventually they were upgraded to free-flow roads by building bridges in the main intersections but leaving minor intersections with direct access to the road. This case of free-flow roads construction is specially true for the city of Monterrey.

Mexico City has some better planned freeways where you can only access to them with ramps, most of the ramps via the frontage road (carriles laterales = lateral lanes) though
