Which is the fastest border crossing from Tijuana to San Diego this Tuesday?

One of Tijuana's main characteristics in the last few years has been the traffic chaos caused by long lines at border crossings

Tijuana has been characterized in the last few years due to heavy traffic periods and chaos. One of the main reasons for this is the slow, sometimes painfully slow, border crossings into the United States.

This horrible time sink trying to cross the border never stops. Since the early hours of the morning, hundreds of people can wait from 2 to 3 hours in line just hoping hours don’t extend any longer.
