Same as the others who got ticketed there. I was aware of the trap and was doing 35,but got a ticket for doing 43 in a 35. You do not have to speed to get a ticket from these jerks.

Wicked speed trap. Worst I’ve ever seen. Was ticketed for doing 44 in a 35. Thought I had already left town so started speeding up to 50 mph, which is standard for most towns. Besides, who sets up a radar trap at 1:30 AM in Bayard, NM? Keep my $ but will never stop for gas, food or to – – – in this town.

The trap lies just North of Bayard toward Silver City. The speed limit changes from 55,to 45 to 40 to 35 and to 30 over a short distance, and the changes are not very will marked. The local City cops are the ones manning the trap. The cop that pulled me over still had Mesquite brush hanging on his car from the bushes he had been concealed in. I received a ticket for going 45 mph in the 35 mph section.

As you enter Bayard for Hurley the speed limit drops for 55 to 35. It continues through the town and as you exit the town it changes only to 40 this goes on for 3 miles. Very unrealistic.
