Angel Fire, New Mexico Speed Traps
Watch out! Angel Fire, Eagle Nest and Cimarron are all speed trap nightmares. Locals told us Do Not exceed the speed limit by even 1 mph! Police work the main highway aggressively as a source of local revinue. I’ve seen as many as three vehicles working together in these tiny towns. If pulled over Do Not plead guilty on the spot. Officer will threaten you with a court appearance if you do not comply. The truth is you can handle ticket later by mail and even ask for a plea to a lesser charge.
