Cargo wagons are parked at the Lecheria railroad station in Tepotzotlan, Mexico, May 13, 2010. Highway robbers and railway bandits are riding high in Mexico, pulling off brazen daylight heists and inflicting serious damage on the national economy. Train robberies occur an average of 4.5 times a day, and some areas of Mexico are so rife with truck hijackings that one newspaper labeled them "Bermuda Triangles" - referring to the Atlantic Ocean region where ships and planes supposedly vanish.
