One has to be especially careful near SR 80 and 7th Street as you are going towards Saint David and Tombstone, Arizona. The speed limit is 35 m.p.h. here and it is rigorously enforced. Also between the junction or beginning of SR80 and 4th Street West turns into 4th Street East until the Benson City limits they will stop you for ANY infraction at all – a license plate bulb that’s burned out or anything.
You’re almost guaranteed to run into the Arizona Highway Patrol within twenty miles either side of Benson, AZ, which is on the eastern end of the state. Between Southern California and Texas, this was the one hot spot I’d found.
