Greenville, Mississippi Speed Traps
State hwy 1 near where it connects to 454 which takes you to hwy 82 which crosses Mississippi River into Arkansas
State Trooper rides entire road which has posted speed of 55
Area is flat farm land and road is mostly straight and less than moderate traffic
Road is a “honey hole” as proven by how many cops ride it
Speed limit is excessively low for conditions
Trooper would not tell me where I was when he “clocked” me
Court date on ticket was 2weeks but woman at court made a point of telling me that was not the actual court date which would be later and I would get letter
City policemen give tickets to out of staters for speeds far in excess of what they were driving. In my case speed was 57 in a 55 received a ticket for 67 in 55 was not allowed to see radar reading, officer said he had another call.
Lady that was mgr at the state tourist breau a little further down the road said that several out of state people in the past, had stopped there with the same complaint. This occurred 7-2011 still mad $175 they set court dates 2 weeks later. Would have cost more to go back. Was my first ticket in 12 yrs.
City police have been running radar and giving tickets on the south end of town, especially on South Main where the speed limit goes from 45 to 35. Also on Tampa Drive between Highway 82 and South Main, where the speed limit is 35.
Usually sit just North of Rick’s Express and below Grandma’s Best Whole Sale in the middle of the four lane road.
