Each week, we post here on the blog and on The New Mexican’s website the locations of the city’s two Speed SUVs.
You can always check them out by clicking the “Where’s the Speed SUV” link at the top of this blog.
For those who think we shouldn’t be posting the locations, you may be right, but before the nasty e-mails start coming in as they have in the past, please know the goal of the program according to the city is not to catch drivers in the act and surprise them with these speed enforcement vehicles. It is aimed at changing driving habits in identified problem areas around town which is why these SUVs are out in the open for all to see and their locations are advertised in advance.(Of course getting $100 a pop on citations is good for the City too).
So, here are this week’s locations as provided by the Santa Fe Police Department…
