US Highway 82

Hope, New MexicoMay 14, 20072 Comments

Village of Hope has 6 Police officers. At any given time there are 2 officers on duty. Their main duties are traffic control. The posted speed is 40 MPH in the Village. Then turns to 55 MPH. The speed limit signs are well posted. And the Officers will site you for anything over 10 miles an hour.

How they get you is that US 82 is a long straight road (easy to speed on). The speed is 55 MPH it drops suddenly to 40 MPH well outside of town with no warning. The first time I saw the sign for 40 MPH you could see the town still in the distance. If you pass that sign going more than 45 mph - Watch Out!
