Russellville, Arkansas Speed Traps
School Speed Limit says when children are present. In the 3 years I’ve lived here I have never seen children in front of the Middle School on Parkway. They are dropped off in back the same place buses drop them off. I have no children in the school so I have no idea of the hours they attend. There are no SIGNS stating school hours as in other towns (Ft. Smith for one) or flashing lights to alert drivers that children may be present. So unknowing motorists and people from other areas would not be aware of school times. Why are there no SIGNS stating school hours? Sounds like a SPEED TRAP to me. Noticed several other agree.
The Parkway, four lanes, was designed to move traffic more readily through the city East-West-East. The speed limit was recently reduced to 35 and the Parkway is now under constant traffic cops.
On 16th street (Hickey Park) there is will usually be a RPD cop sitting somewhere on that street and There is NO speed limit posted so watch your back… It’s a 30 MPH zone because it’s an unposted ”urban” zone. Trust me slow down it’s not worth a 200 dollar ticket.
there are three city officers in a parking lot, that are out of their cars and they are flaging down drivers and telling them to pull into the near by school so that they can add an extra fine for driving over the speed limit in a school zone, but at the time when they are tagged with radar they are not in the school zone.
The whole town.
