Brookhaven, Mississippi Speed Traps
The speed trap is located about 2 miles from 84 Chevron.
Union Street Extended has been annexed by city. Was 45MPH and safe under county…now 30MPH and not marked. City is making a fortune off of this site!
Belt Line Road to Old Wesson Hwy has been annexed by the city. Speed was 45MPH but is now 30MPH and is not well marked! Rural road with 2 miles of no buildings at all. City is using new annexations to enhance revenue.
City police stage in adjacent parking lots along 4-lane street which is main ingress/egress route for city to/from interstate. Posted limit is lower than intersecting thoroughfares.
Police sit on either side of the over-the-railroad bridge waiting for the vehicles to descend, knowing that it is very hard to maintain 30mph. My vehicle will accelerate from 30mph to 38mph with the cruise set at 30mph,so, if you are doing 35mph when at the crest of the bridge, you will certainly be going 40mph or more and WILL contribute to the city’s "fund-drive"
