Marshall, Arkansas Speed Traps
There is a passing lane (one of the few areas you can pass slower moving drivers) but it’s right before you enter the town of Marshall. They wait at the bottom of a large hill as you top the hill you hit the city limits. Speed limit drops rapidly and you are going down hill (no chance to slow down). The town sheriff throws the light on before you even get half way to him.
This is a no win situation. Marshall is out of the way and there is no chance you want to drive all the way back up there to fight a ticket in their court. Big speed trap.

Slow down for the curves! That’s how they caught me.
The local police held me on the side of the road for almost an hour while he talked to his buddy on the side of the road. I also tried to make arrangements with the courts to pay the fine. They wouldn’t take my money in payments. I did let them know how I could pay and I did just that. I sent the payment in just as I said. Then they had my license revoked in MS and I had to pay another $150.00 for not coming to court. The ticket cost me over $300.00. If I had not contacted them, I would have understood. Very crooked town.
This town preys on tourists
Because of the area terrain this is one of the few areas to pass larger slower vehicles, law enforcement officers know this and constantly write tickets for speeds just over the limit.
