Never driven thru NM, but we have reciprocity with them. Check their laws to see if you have to inform upon being stopped;I plan on driving from Austin to Durango, through new mexico. Does anyone have any experience dealing with local authorities (highway Patrol) whole driving with a gun in the car, not on person?
I don't know. I was told (and this is hearsay from the locals) that the 'native American' police patrol the highways in the reservations, and they have their own laws. There are definitely large signs along the interstates telling you that you're entering or leaving a reservation.If you stay on an interstate HWY, wouldn't you be fine?
