Hope, Indiana Speed Traps
North and South of Hope. Bored Cops. They set in various places like parking lots, side of roads, gas stations, fields, and way out of view. If they can’t get you for speeding they will find something else. Make sure you have no tail or license plates lights out. Its a small town. Speed drops from 55 to 45 to 35 to 30MPH in a matter of a few hundred feet. If one cop pulls you over be assured the another will come to aid in the ticketing. Locals are aware and be advised to not pass. City is out in out part of the county. County cops don’t like to patrol much. They have given permission to local cops to patrol out side of the city limits by about 5 miles. So be away the city limits won’t help you much.
Officer sits at Hill’s Auto Sales blending in with other cars in the car lot. The speed limit changes from 45mph to 35mph at the bottom of the hill – so you have to brake going down the hill. Officer stopped me here & I have seen him out all along State Road 9 – while visiting the area.
