Bosque Farms, New Mexico Speed Traps
Based on a formal Spot Speed Study, Bosque Farms’ State Hwy. 47 Does satisfy the definition of “Speed Trap.” Also, arbitrarily low speed limits Increase the accident rates and their resulting injuries and deaths, and speed traps only make it worse. Further, the “Basic Legal Aspects” document shows many of the Rights violations necessary to successful speed trap operations. – Bill M (www.screweddrivers.org)
Well-patrolled since I first started driving the entire section of NM-47 through Bosque Farms…little tolerance for more than 3-5 mph over posted speed.
Officers will park just south of the S. Bosque Loop (which has a posting of 45mph) and stop those who are transitioning from the previous 40mph to the 45mph.
