Elida is a small town in Eastern New Mexico. It is also home to a highly aggressive speed trap that relies on the ticket money to run the village infrastructure. the speed limit drops drastically from 70 mph to 35 mph in a VERY short space and the bear will bite you hard if he catches you!

Sheriff Deputy in a pickup truck catches you as you exit this town of barely 500 people going northbound. He sits on the opposite side of the highway just over a small hill and curve The speed limit is an unrealistic 35 even though you have at this point left the town and are now on a 4 lane highway and no traffic. Strickly a revenue builder for this tiny hamlet. Gives No Breaks!

The speed limit on this stretch of highway is completely fair because there is school zone in the middle of town. There are also pedestrians who frequently cross the highway. The speed limit was set by the New Mexico Highway Department. The Town of Elida has two municipal officers to enforce the laws of this town. Please slow down when coming through our small town and enjoy the park, the local cafe or the antique shop next to the local cafe. We have a lot of history to share.

Cop will be sitting by a restaurant on the Northeast side of town. Don’t be fooled by the landscape, there’s nothing to hit and seems you’re well out of town, but the speed limit is still 35 MPH.

Speed limit drops from 65 MPH to 35 MPH within a half mile. The officers stage in all areas throughout the village. Both officers employed by the Village do not have current NM certification. Any citation recieved in this jurisdiction should be challenged on the basis of the lack of certification of the officers. The officers have been heard making comments that they generate in excess of $15,000 a month in revenue for the village from the citations issued by their department.
