At this point, many of you are saying, "55? So what? Ain't no cops out there!" I, however, have vivid memories of getting a ticket for going 70 in a NM 55 in the middle of nowhere, so there.

I was ticketed for 73 in a 55 outside of Truth Or Consequences, NM at 2 AM years ago. Not one other car on the road, in either direction, during the whole interaction with the Officer, including the time it took him to flip a u-turn and come after me.
Proud to have ridden all 50 US States. IBA #48773.
