I don't know if I would describe them as corrupt so much as they are just VERY thorough. The bribe for 50 Bol other overlanders were talking about may have just been the Orden de Traslado, something you need to drive around in Bolivia anyways. Get one at the police station (for 50 Bol) to get through these checkpoints more smoothly. They also asked to see our botiquin (first aid kit), fire extinguisher, reflective triangles and high vis vests. Since we had everything they let us go with a smile.
