Dona Ana, New Mexico Speed Traps
Sheriff will park in the median just west of the Brahman Road overpass, watching for Westbound speeders. Since the overpass "pops-up" over Brahman Rd, westbound drivers cannot see the sheriff until they go over the top of the overpass. Speed limit is 65 mph, with typical traffic speed 67-70 mph.
Dona Ana County Sheriffs along with New Mexico State Police vehicles lie hidden in the medians behind tall mesquite bushes from 3-6 miles north of Las Cruces sometimes numbering from 2-6 units. Be aware that double fines are in order being that it is a construction zone up to a mile before and after exit#9/Dona Ana posted speed drops from 65-35mph pretty quickly which is the catch. Exit#9/Dona Ana is north of Las Cruces between Fort Seldon and Las Cruces.
US 70 between Las Cruces and Alamogordo is the only U.S. Highway where you can legally drive 75 mph! (day and night) (all vehicles) but only for a 27 mile stretch through White Sands Missile Range. Be careful because the speed limit will go back down to 65 and cops could be hiding.
