The safest way to get in and outta Mexico ?

So I am planning a trip to Nuevo Laredo Mexico ,I have the option to fly or to use the bus . So my question is because the cartel wars have been pretty active in Nuevo Laredo lately. What s the best way to cross the border. I was thinking of getting a taxi to get me over the bridge and my family would be waiting on the other side? What do you suggest on making it from point A to point B without falling into a bad situation? .

    The cartels do not target tourists. They don't normally target most people living in those areas, either- if they did, everyone would be dead, including your relatives. They are all about control of the drug industry. When I went to Laredo, we parked out car on the US side and walked across the border- along with hundreds of other people. People cross the border both ways to shop, all the time. I don't know what advantage there would be to taking a taxi. Just walk.

      Just like Gypsyfish advised you to just walk over one of the available (tourist) bridges. When I visited my wife during the process of her "green card" back in 2009-2010; I did the same thing but in Cuidad Juarez which has a reputation for cartels & murdering women. I crossed over the Santa Fe one
