Springer, New Mexico Speed Traps
chief here does write 10,000 a month and brags about it, its a town that survives off speeding tickets watch the intersection in town they sit there all day.
This speed trap is manned most mornings starting around 7:15 am until school starts. Posted 15 mph and tickets given for anything over that. Police chief brags that he brings in over $10,000 for the town per month. I got ticket for 20mph in a 15mph zone even though no flashing lights at the time and also no kids either. Coming off a side street, I did not see any signage. I think speed traps to make money for the town coffers are illegal in New Mexico.
State Police set up speed trap. May say your cruise is inaccurate due to ‘oversized tires’ and check your door sticker even tho tires are what came on the vehicle.
Always 1or 2 village patrols parked at the Mexican food cafe.
Several local patrols. Speed limit is 35, and they don’t tolerate36! Watch for patrol car parked behind sign on the right side of highway at the west end of village. They report anywhere from 22 to 36 tickets issued weekly.
