This can be a problem if there is no bypass (libramiento) & have to enter a major city. The highway becomes a busy throughfare or zig zag route through the city.

Another problem is on a U-Turn (Retorno) when it doesnt say its a Retorno.

A perfect example is in Aguascalientes where there is no bypass route & the highways serving Guanajuato, Zacatecas, & San Luis Potosi connect in Downtown Aguascalientes.

This was also the case in Downtown Chihuahua before the bypass was built. I once got on Mexico Federal Highway 16 heading to the Sierra Madre Occidental which would then take me to Hermosillo, Sonora. It was raining hard that day & there was a lot of construction.

Sometimes maps and GPS are not always up to date.

Welcome to third world, where people in charge don't have the vision to make things rigth for everyone's well being, we mexicans complain about it too, yet even if you send letters or anything you just get ignored. I think it's just stupid not investing a little more money on signals and have a vision of what doing things rigth would benefit the country, if we have seen what american roads are designed and the good way the work for the economy, why not build ours like theirs?

I've always been fond of the signs announcing topes in the smaller pueblos. 400m, 300m, 200m 100m then a sign at the tope itself.

Now drive to Cabo (or many other towns) at La Paz a GIANT sign pointing to Highway 19. Unfortunately it's right at the road, no early warning at all.

I have always been confused as to why the "Via Rapida Oriente" in Tijuana takes you west to the coast. If its Oriente, wouldn't it go to the Orient or the East?

Also, my favorite signs are the ones with all the confusing loops.

^^ This.

There is a great lack of professionalism in the people responsible for transport in the three branches of government, for someone who is not from here is very confusing to drive.
