Mexico in a nutshell: Don't drink and drive, unless it's for a real party!

I'm on my way to Mexico for the holidays, and one article in today's Milenio on a common practicise during this season I think captures a slice of mexicanidad to the fullest. The use of alcoholometers is getting increasingly widespread, given the admittedly very real problem. Yet the Secretariat of Public Security announced that program would be temporarily suspended on two of the biggest drinking nights of the year, Dec. 25 or Jan. 1 - so yes, on the two nights when we are likely to see the most drinking and driving, the program has officially been declared suspended...  so happy holidays, and salud!
