Pine Bluff, Arkansas Speed Traps
Long long stretches of Highway that the rest of the world would consider 70 as an appropriate speed limit. Not the case here. 55 mile per hour speed limit is ludicrous! And by definition a massive of speeding trap.
The speed limit south of town is 60 MPH. Rounding a bend in the road, the speed limit
Goes to 45 mph. When you see that, you see Blue lights. You learn that you are being ticketed
For 60 mph in a 45 mph zone. BAM! Just like that, your hooked and fried!
Over the last few weeks, I’ve noticed that Pine Bluff has begun using unmarked and unusual vehicles — and officers in plain clothes — to make traffic stops. One vehicle is a taupe SUV and another is a dark pick-up truck. Aside from the radar trap aspect, the use of plain clothes officers is worrisome and potentially dangerous. Unfortunately anyone — even a 17 year old wannabe cop — can to buy and install blue lights.
