Louisville, Kentucky Speed Traps
Speed Drops to 55 MPH just before tunnel. LMPD sometimes waiting on left shoulder going northbound before the tunnel. Multiple LMPD cars waiting in left shoulder just as you exit tunnel going north bound toward the new east end bridge. Observed multiple cars pulled over at the same time just north of tunnel.
Belmar Drive by Camp Taylor school, the straightaway there. The same cop has been out there all day evidently. Gave me an over $200 ticket for going 35 in a 25 mph zone. He was still nailing people late this evening. Maybe they need money to pay for their body cameras and extra security for the “youth” problem, the cameras in waterfront park, etc. So they are extorting innocent people. They surrounded me on both sides of my car like they were going to put me in a crossfire. I bet they’ve collected a few thousand dollars just today.
Westbound I-64 limit drops 10mph at Hurstbourne, LMPD cop sit right over the hill with laser gun.
The posted limit of 25 should be 35 instead. Cops regularly lay in wait for rush hour travelers.
The Watterson has a maximum limit of 55. Maximum, not minimum. It is a heavily traveled and poorly designed intrastate. In construction, they used little care in in consistent elevation, correct camber designed for the speed limit, or entrance and exit tapers and placement. As a result, it is already prone to be a parking lot due to accidents. Tailgating, speeding and lane-hopping may only get you to your interchange (64, 71) so you can wait even longer. If we were all moving at 55, it would give the traffic ahead. already at the interchange, time to move through, instead of so many racing up there to contribute to the bottle-necked log-jam of traffic. Speeders slow everyone down on the Watterson, either by creating dangerous situations and accidents, or by contributing to a bottle-neck. Wait your turn. If you were going over the well-posted limit of 55, you trapped yourself.
