Helena, Arkansas Speed Traps
This trap on Oakland Ave. close to Perry/Porter Sts. It is a divided four lane. The speed limit varies from 40-45mpg on most of Oakland but is 35mph at this area and there is no reason for it. No one drives 35 thru here. I clocked the traffic judge, that had just fined a friend for speeding here, at 15mph over the limit. The local police regularly set up radar here to catch motorists when they run onto the 35mph area. The local police in the twin cities very frequently work the 35mph areas where they know they can catch motorists easiest. A normal ticket is $140 which tells you they are just out to make the bucks. Helena/W Helena Ar. are "Speed Traps."
