ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The Albuquerque Police Department announced Sunday they have been directed by Mayor Tim Keller to create a working group to tackle citywide speeding and street racing. The department’s Metro Traffic Division identified several key areas in the city where street racing and speeding have contributed to a large number of fatal and serious injury crashes.
