    Mexico Federales (Federal de Caminos) Which is the Mexican highway patrol uses K hand held guns for the most part , and Mexico city has photo Radar on all of it's freeways .

    I don't know why it says KA , I've never seen any cop in Mexico with KA but then again I haven't been down there in about 2 years.
