Tipton, Indiana Speed Traps
Police sit on the north side of the tracks running radar / laser on traffic coming into and going out of the city. You don’t see them until it’s too late because they try to blend in to the surroundings. The speed drops from 55 down to 35 mph and they take advantage of the speed dropping as a reason to pull you over. Because they sit just over the railroad tracks you don’t see them going northbound either until it’s too late to do anything about it.
Town speed limit 35 mph poorly marked. Road has a turn with poor banking. They say instruments are checked for accuracy once per year. I greatly doubt their accuracy.
More interest in revenue than safety; speed limit signs hard to see before limits apply. In-process slowdown does not count here.
County Deputies are always parked somewhere in the middle of the 4 lane highway. The have both front and rear radars in the cars so watch out. There is a 20 mile stretch in that county which is highly enforced.
Division Road is an isolated, paved, straight country road. Going east from US 31, the posted speed limit is 55 mph which is appropriate, however, after the first stop sign the limit is posted at 45 mph without any change in the road design and equally rural. There the sheriff hangs out with a radar gun. Later the speed limit returns to 55 mph.
