Another reason to bike in ‘Burque

May 23, 2007

The National Motorists Association has compiled a list of the country’s top ten speed trap cities. Albuquerque, we were booked at No. 7. Surprise-surprise, the Motor City is America’s speed trap capitol.

So is it a good thing to make the list? Well, I suppose from a safety standpoint, of course. —But getting nailed in a speed trap is never a happy occasion. One might argue speed traps make people nervous; unsafe drivers. Not sure that argument can hold water, but… maybe.

I guess the question to ask is, “Are speed traps improving Duke City driving?” If you ask the editors at Men’s Health, the answer is probably no.

Red light cameras, cell phone driving bans, speed traps… I didn’t know I had an older brother. This is one list I wouldn’t mind seeing Albuquerque miss next year. Plan of attack? Well, maybe we ought to just slow down.
