Entering Lordsdburg, NM from West on Interstate 10

Lordsburg, New MexicoAug 16, 20120 Comments

Speed limit changes from 75mph to 65mph. I got my ticket (75mp in a 65mph zone) within about 60 seconds of speed limit sign. I’m a law abiding driver but had been driving for six hours. I would have been at 65mph in about 30 more seconds.
The most interesting and frustrating aspect of this incident was that while waiting on the side of the road in strong winds the police officer said i had to plead guilty or not guilty. No court, no judge, no lawyer, and most of all no time. I’m used to signing a ticket to indicate I received it. In Lordsburg the police officer is judge and jury and the side of the road is your courtroom. I had some questions about insurance points, court dates and times etc. No questions were allowed, much less answered. Officer said he was in a hurry.
