New tools are expected in the US-Mexico border posts, this means that all cars and trucks will be checked, and supposed to make the crossing a little faster.
According to Ricardo Peralta Saucedo, Custom´s General Director, the traffic lights in all the international entry boxes will be replaced by technology, beginning this in half a year.
With this new way of checking, with a machine, a suitcase can be checked in 4 seconds, while a truck can be checked in 40 seconds.
The customs objective is to have better control and stop the illegal entry of weapons into Mexico. If the technology detects any toxic substance or item that should not enter, that person would be stopped or detained.
