Before I moved here from Southern New Mexico some 20 years ago, I would venture into El Paso from time to time for concerts, restaurants and other attractions. One thing that always surprised me was the number of speeders on Texas highways. It seemed like New Mexico drivers hardly ever exceeded the speed limit, but the second you crossed the state line into Texas, everybody was flying by me like i was standing still. Not being one to miss an opportunity to put the pedal to the metal once in a while, I happily kept up with the flow of traffic. But, what about speed traps? You hear about them, but personally, I rarely see them.

Cheap Car Insurance compiled data on the Top Speed Traps in Your State, from the National Speed Trap Exchange (who knew there was such a thing?) and none are actually around here. Now, that doesn't mean you won't get pulled over if you drive like a crazy person, it just means theses are places where actual speed traps have been reported by drivers.
