Title: Speed trap charges
Description: Huachuca City has long had a reputation for being a “speed trap.” This September 14, 1967 article in the Tombstone Epitaph describes charges the Arizona AAA made that Huachuca City was planning to increase significantly revenues from speeding tickets by operating a speed trap. Huachuca City manager Lisandro Gonzales disagreed, saying the town was going to enforce the 45 mile per hour speed limit, but would give a 10 mile per hour margin.

Even today, Huachuca City is often accused of being a speed trap, even when they are just enforcing posted speed limits.
