What is a Speed Trap?
Detailed research by the U.S. Department of Commerce has shown that the safest rate of travel is a few miles per hour above the average traffic speed. Enforced speed limits set below that average speed are speed traps, sacrificing safety for revenue.

Beware of this Speedtrap:
Shiloh park location, Parkers Crossroads, Henderson County
My family coming home from family vacation in Tennessee 1:00am Saturday night a Henderson county sheriff deputy came from no where says I was speeding at 82 mph in a little four cylinder ford station wagon. I don't think it's ever been over 75. People tease me at Fedex, I always drive like an old man. It scared us to death, being stopped with awful traffic at 1:00 am in the morning we were scared to get out of the car, my wife went into panic, plus my doggie was going crazy. We pledged we would not be going on any more vacations to Tennessee. We live in Mississippi. Speeding Radar is illegal in Mississippi, county sheriff departments fund their offices with speed traps, so the state outlawed it. A security officer at Fedex told me Tennessee Counties are required to have approvals from the Tennessee highway department to conduct speed traps in Tennessee. Can you please check and see if Henderson county parkers crossroads, got approvals from the state of Tennessee to set up speed traps at their Shiloh park location. It was awful. They should be ashamed of themselves. We will be sure to tell all our friends at work and in our hometown in Mississippi.
