Default How safe is it to travel into Mexico?

I'm thinking of traveling into Mexico in a few weeks me and a friend are going to stay there for a week. We are driving into Mexico from the Texas border and staying in a town about 7 hours away. But I'm a little scared, people make comments that it's too dangerous to drive into Mexico. I also watch the news and hear stories that make me a bit scared. Is it really that dangerous? Should I be scared? Especially 2 females driving alone?

Personally,I no longer drive in Mexico.I think it is much easier to take the bus.With a car you have the added expense/time of permits,insurance,bond,gasoline,tolls, finding a safe place to park, traffic or parking tickets,etc.Getting around in Mexico without your own car is not nearly as hard or inconvienent as it is in the U.S.
Public transportation throughout Mexico is both efficient and inexpensive.Of course it would depend on where exactly you are going in Mexico, but generally speaking you should be safe.Most of the problems you read about are confined to the areas close to the international border.However you choose to go,have a great trip.
