A cop sits in a parking lot of an empty building and sometimes behind the building where you can only see the front of his bumper if you are headed toward Barling, if you are coming down the hill from Barling it is impossible to see him until it is too late I have been pulled over in this spot for doing 1 mph over, posted limit is 45 mph
The speed limit is posted 30 MPH, however, most everyone goes between 35/45 MPH. The Officer sits there anywhere from 7:30 am to noon and sometimes after lunch. He is sitting off the road behind the Queens Palace Speed Wash undetectable if you are going East bound on Rogers. Beware, he will give his mama a ticket.
