Saint Charles, Arkansas Speed Traps
This speed trap is a total joke and the cop wasn’t even wearing a uniform, just a badge, gun and a camo shirt. The speed limit drops to 45 for about 1,000 yards or less then goes back up to 55. The sign is hidden in the turn before the hill and there is no time to slow down even if you did see it. The cop sits on the other side of the hill every single day and guns people coming as soon as they reach the crest of the hill. You can see the 55 mph sign from where you get pull over.
Town has 3 cops, population 150. Just as many thefts and drugs as Chicago but cops stay on highway 1. You tell me
There’s a cop who thinks he can pull people over any where in Arkansas County. I have checked and he is not deputized. If you get pulled over by this clown. Be sure to check if the violation was in St.Charles or not. He is pushing his jurisdiction limits alot. I have heard he pulled someone over in crocketts bluff. The mayor needs to wake up and get rid of this guy
There is nothing in this "town" worth slowing down for. But it drops down to 45 anyway. Typical barney fife type who (1) was a total jerk from start to finish, and was incorrect when he told me that although I was unarmed, It was the law to volunteer to show my CC permit (he didn’t ask). A few weeks later he cut me off after pulling one guy over and pulled out to get another. Just a worthless way of obtaining revenue for a crap town.
The town has one police officer. He’s a nice guy… But will pull you over–Even after you’ve crossed the bridge. I was traveling north on 1, was going 68 in a 45–Never saw the sign. Never felt like I was endangering anyone. The town is so small, you’ll never see it! But apparently they feel the need to drop the speed limit. He blue-lighted me on the White River bridge and got me on the Monroe County side of the river. Being New Years Eve and being from out of town didn’t help either. I’m from Mississippi.
