The police sit in the middle of the 6-lane hwy and in the parking lots with their lights off. They clock you there. They are in a Dodge Charger and Old Crown Vick.
Officers set next to roadway at bellsouth and above.
Between The Island Creek Redlights around Dairy Queen to the Shelbiana Foodcity in that stretch a radar speed is just about always positive. D.O.T’s and KSP’s patrol in the fast lane waiting to Instant on you as your coming toward them. Also where the highway has been scooted over from the cliff for safetey, as you approach that curve they hide behind the old carpet building running instant on. A lot of mountains/turns/switchbacks so thats many places for them to hide.
Their is a speed zone for a school there. As soon as you come to the top of Buckleys Crk, The State/D.O.T is sitting there capturing your speed as soon as you get into the school zone. Usually, 60 in a 45 will get you busted. Immediately at the top of the hill it drops from 55 to 45, and there’s usually a trap using IO Ka Band.
Long stretches of hills with lots of steep grades. You get caught as you are coming down the grades.
