Babaloo is 100% spot on. If the can get the easy money, they will keep doing it to other suckers. Yes, ask for the ticket as Babaloo said.
I was stopped by a Cancun Transit Police just north of Cancun airport several months ago. I knew that I had broken no laws. By the time the police clown reached my car window, I had all of my documents (drivers license, insurance, registration) in hand and ready for him. He walked back to his truck (his "supervisor" was in the drivers seat) to consult. After a few minutes he walked back to my car, handed me the documents back, and told my that my windows were tinted too dark. I told him that I would drive with the window down......and that was that.
Stand your ground IF YOU HAVE DONE NOTHING WRONG.
BTW, not wearing your seat belt and/or talking on your cell phone while driving are fine-able offenses.
