Seymour, Indiana Speed Traps
There are two roads to get into Freeman Field, one is on the west side (Airport Rd) and the other is the south side (B Ave east). This one has an elementary school here so the speed limit is 20 with children present. Otherwise it’s 30 -35 any other time. They like to sit at the school (south) and the bowling alley (west) to catch the factory workers as they come and go. Watch your speed!
On I-65 close to Seymour exit 50 there are weigh stations for trucks. I have often seen police officers in the ditch next to the weigh station or in the median next to the weigh station clocking people. Both North and South bound traffic.
They hide behind the abutment and ticket the south bound traffic. Also in this area there is a Red Camero that often patrols the I 65 north out of Seymour.
Local and state police (there is a post in Seymour) ticket regularly on this route. N Ewing St becomes St Rd 11 north of town, and meets I-65 at Exit 55. The state police use this route to travel north to I-65 northbound, and when exiting I-65 southbound at Exit 55. This is a straight, rural stretch of road, posted at 55mph. It is very easy for velocitized I-65 southbound drivers to exit on this non-stop, mostly straight exit onto Rt 11 south towards Seymour, so no need to slow down much, and find themselves doing 60-something to 70 or more. I pass a state trooper with his radar on multiple days a month on this road, so they have to be out there a lot.
Highway 50 through Seymour, IN is Tipton Street, which 4 lane. City, county and state police all hit this road hard all the way through town. Enforcement is particularly heavy in evening and at night. I have been followed repeatedly when passing through town. Was not speeding but obviously they were running my plates as they followed me onto other roadways. I have out of state plates, but I do not know if that makes it worse. They bounce from car to car looking for someone to stop. A couple of sober co-workers were stopped on their way to work and accused of being drunk and given sobriety tests.
