Malvern, Arkansas Speed Traps
They sit behind trees in the median looking for out of state cars to pull over. They got me for going 72 in a 70mph zone. I went to court and they tacked court fees on along with the ticket bringing it up to about $270. You can’t see the cars until you are right beside them which leads me to believe that there is no possible way that they could be checking speeds properly.
Interstate I 30 at Malvern, Ar and jct 270. Constant patroling on and off of the interstate to highway 270 and back onto the interstate.
Also the new highway 270 bypass is a modern well built highway the is straight and wide for 4 plus miles and lends itself to an easy 70mph but posted at 55 and they love to work that section because it is like shooting fish in a barrel..
As you exit I-30, make sure and stick to the posted 55mph on 270, the officer (singular) of Rockport, AR will pull you over for any infraction, and their fines are higher than average, I can’t even find Rockport on the map, but it’s there just north of Malvern.
Speed Limit is 20mph. The road widens and there is woods on both sides of the road. There is a road that comes out of the back of a business where the officers sit. The road easily accomodates speeds up to 50mph without any loss of control or danger. Even school zones are 25 mph.
