Highway 80 – just south of I-10

Lordsburg, New MexicoJul 14, 20030 Comments

I diverted from the eastbound I-10 onto highway 80 near Tuscon in order to pass through Tombstone, AZ and Bisbee, AZ, then link up with the eastbound I-10 once again near Lordsburg, NM. The highway through AZ was set at 65MPH, then dropped to 60MPH at the NM border. Climbing a mountain, I noticed several spring-based signs being held down by the wind, but didn’t pay any mind. Unfortunately one of the signs dropped the speed limit to 55MPH. The officer was sitting on a hilltop further on and got me for what he claimed was 77MPH. I had been keeping it to 65MPH, but arguing is of course pointless.

As I left the scene, he was literally pulling over the next person. Hope this warning can save someone some pain.
