Las Vegas, New Mexico Speed Traps
On North 8th St. Extension (A11A) near Pork Chop Hill there are alot of curvy
hills. One side of the Street is marked 35MPH and on the complete opposite side of the road it is marked 25MPH. State Police like to hang out in this area especially near Pork Chop Hill Rd (A14A) hiding and stop people. This is one of their favorite places to fill their quota for the month. Drive slow and be on the look out.
Going down hill near Las Vegas you will pick up 15 mph in no time. The local police will get you as they drive north in the opposite direction.
Speed on 84 drops so rapidly that brakes need to be applied to lower speed so a violation is not recorded. Sheriff or highway patrol will be the officer
Watch out when you travel Highway 518 from Las Vegas to Mora. There are a lot of New Mexico State Police officers that spend a lot of time on this highway giving speeding tickets. Also watch out for the Mora County SO units and the San Miguel SO units. They also spend a lot of time on this stretch. SLOW DOWN!
