Gallup, New Mexico Speed Traps
Beware the drop in speed from 75 MPH to 65 MPH around Gallup. Many people overlook this or ignore it. Surpirse surpirse! The New Mexico State Police come out of the woodwork around here, even though you may not see all that much of them anywhere else. Beware, they also have those sneaky "slickroof" vehicles. The kind without lightbars on top, so keep your eyes peeled and go a tad slower than the nuts who fly past you. Let them be the ones that get stopped.
Speed on the I-40 is 75 mph from AZ / CA boarder through NM and on. In Gallup, WATCH OUT!, the speed quickly decreases to 45 mph and stays that way for approximately 5 miles. Its not the NM state troopers you have to worry about, its the indian reservation enforcement.
