Area of Norris and 21st

Clovis, New MexicoApr 23, 20102 Comments

Speed limit in this vicinity of Norris changes almost every few blocks from 35 mph to 45 mph–it is very confusing. At 5:45 a.m. the officer pulled me over right next to the 45 mph sign and ticketed me for going 45 in a 35 mph zone… apparently there was a 3-block radius at 35 mph and I did not slow down fast enough! The officer himself admitted that he feels the speed limits are confusing and that he gives more tickets in this area than anywhere else; and yet he had no mercy. Visited court to dispute the ticket and the judge herself admitted that she doesn’t notice the speed changes when she drives in that vicinity! Watch out!

The reason it drops to 35 is there are two elementary schools in the area and it makes sense to slow down. It then picks back up until the next school area. Cops patrol schools areas more than other areas. If one famaliarizes himself with the boundaries of the school zones, he can still make it across Norris to 21st quickly because the lights are pretty co-ordinated.

I need to correct the first comment. That is for the 21st to Wilcher on Norris where the two schools are. There is a fire station between Mabry Dr. and 21st.
