Florence, Mississippi Speed Traps
Florence Police sit on side roads and at neighborhood entrances with Radar so they can nab another local Florence resident. Why would anyone want to shop in Florence when they get speeding tickets on the way to town?
Going south from the Battery Plant is downhill, so you can start out at the posted limit of 30mph and gain about 5 to 7 MPH coasting downhill. They will write the ticked for doing 45 in a 30 even though you are doing less than 40. Reason? How about the price going up when it is 15 MPH over? Officers that alter tickets is a disgrace to the Law Enforcement. However, City Hall don’t seem to care, just write tickets and continue to run the majority of people to Richland, Pearl, and Flowood to shop. No wonder no new business’ are building in Florence!
Coming out of Florence going toward Byram on Florence Byram road, you had better be doing 30 or below. The Cops love to park at the First Church that you come to. You cannot see them because they will park in the Parking lot, which is below the main road view, untiil it is too late. A speed trap you should be aware of.
Florence PD loves this road.
It is a 35mph limit but its straight all the way to the city limits sign. If you dont watch it you’ll be doing 55mph easy.
From Hwy 49 going East on Main St all the way to the city limits,Florence PD is always patroling and running radar in this area. The speed limit is 30 mph.
