New Mexico is crossed by three major interstate highways, Interstate 10, Interstate 40, and Interstate 25. As these three highways are the fastest, busiest and most logical routes across the state, they account for most of the traffic violations, usually for speeding violations and often for tourists, business travelers and out-of-state drivers just passing through. If you are an out-of-state driver and have have been ticketed on any of New Mexico’s Interstate Highways or anywhere in New Mexico, and have questions, call (505) 877-8787 today.

The New Mexico Uniform Traffic Citation

All New Mexico traffic cases begin with the police officer or sheriff’s deputy issuing a New Mexico Uniform Traffic Citation. For a complete explanation of the New Mexico Uniform Traffic Citation click here. If you chose to admit guilt and pay a fine, then it is very difficult to fight your citation. If however, you elected a Traffic  Arraignment or Court Appearance, you can still fight the ticket and avoid conviction, fines, and points. On your ticket, the officer should have ordered you to appear in the local New Mexico Traffic Court. Which Court you will have to appear in will depend on where you are cited.

Traffic Jurisdiction in New Mexico

For the most part, when you are stopped and issued a traffic ticket in New Mexico, you will be ordered to appear in the County, City, Town or Village where you were stopped. However, there is a little used provision in New Mexico traffic law that allows officers to order you to appear in a different county, one that you may not have even entered. New Mexico Statue § 35-3-6 grants a Magistrate Court the power to hear traffic cases occurring within that county’s boundaries as well as traffic cases occurring in adjoining counties. You can rest assured that when an officer chooses to order you to appear in a different New Mexico County than the one you were stopped in, it is for his or her benefit, not yours. Glenn Smith Valdez and his team are very familiar with this ticketing trick and know how to fix it. If you have been cited and think you have been ordered to appear in the wrong court, call (505) 877-8787 today. Mr. Valdez and his team are ready to answer your questions, and get your ticket moved to the proper court quickly and easily.
