Interstate 55 north of Ridgeland mall

Madison, MississippiApr 14, 20140 Comments

After a meal at the Ridgeland mall we got back on I-55 north headed for Memphis. There was a constuction area but signs said 50 when workers are present. On Sunday afternoon there were no workers present! The trooper that pulled me over said he got me going 75 in a 50 with workers present, thus doubling the fine. I understand Mississippi doesn’t have the funds for a new Trooper class. They will soon with this practice in place.

Cotton Hill Road near Madison Avenue

Madison, MississippiJul 17, 20070 Comments

Speed limit drops from 35 to 25 at city limits sign, just before a very steep hill. There is no warning that a steep downgrade is imminent. Gravity immediately accelerates vehicle unless the driver is aware of the hill and slows before downgrade. Motorcycle officers wait under a shade tree and step out into the road to wave motorists over. Depression of grass at the side of the road indicates many vehicles were pulled over. Questionable if radar was actually used. Officer indicated tiny radar unit built into motorcycle just behind handlebars.

Old Canton Road near Madison Airport

Madison, MississippiJun 03, 20050 Comments

Madison Police will be parked in the grassy median, or behind the airport office. The reason for the patrol is because of the near by churches, a retirment home, MRA school, strawberry park, and two neigborhood entrances along Old Canton Road.
