New Mexico Safety Corridor

On my drive to and from Colorado, I noticed in the middle of nowhere New Mexico was a what was called a “safety corridor.” Fines were supposedly doubled in this area. I never saw a cop the whole time I was driving through to actually give you the more expensive ticket, but it did seem like every sign there reminded you that you were in the safety corridor. I guess this must have been an empty threat or something to keep people from going like a bat out of hell through the mainly flat, desolate nothing.

Normally, I drive around the speed limit, so I wasn’t worried, but I do find this kind it funny that an area in the middle of nowhere would have all these “safety” signs plastered all over the place, yet not have anyone to actually enforce them.
