South Goldfield on Veteran’s Memorial Highway/US-95
Outside the town the speed limit is 70 mph. As you approach the town there will be a warning sign that the speed is reduced ahead to 45 mph. The next sign indicates the speed limit is only 35 mph (37.6961285,-117.2361864), and in 0.3 miles the speed limit sign says 25 mph (37.7003739,-117.2346205) . By following the speed limit signs and breaking at a safe rate (ie. not slamming the breaks and skidding) our car was slowing but still traveling 10 mph over the speed limit when we passed the 25 mph sign. The officer was behind a structure 50 yards ahead. The result was a ticket for $115.00.
