Bendal: Safety corridors are designated portions of routes that have higher than normal amounts of crashes. States get extra funds to try and improve safety, whether that's through more signs, speed enforcement, or geometric improvements. After reading TFA though I'm not sure what NMDOT has done in this particular safety corridor to improve safety other than to lower the speed limit.

I think the point is that signs that say "safety corridor" do not, in fact, make things safer. They signs are literally just pointing out danger by claiming things are safer.

When I was in middle school, they would put up "drug free school zone" signs at every school that had a drug problem. It's how we knew where to get our drugs.
