Starkville, Mississippi Speed Traps
Police patrol this road hard during events at the Mississippi Horse Park and Agricenter. When accused speed was disputed and asked to see radar reading, it was refused. Especially active during morning and closing event times harrassing people when the speed limit changes. Do not exceed the 35 mph limit on this road by even 1 mph.
As you cross over the bridge on Hwy 82, it becomes Martin Luther King Drive, speed drops from 45 to 35mph but there’s no sign of the speed change until after you get over the hill. The police is sitting at the foot of the hill, there is no time to see him or to slow down for the speed change.
Although not very apparent, there are two cameras facing this intersection from a decent distance. Radar detector K-Band is always set off at this intersection too. Probably part of the speed sensing system (or just false).
Be careful to stay within the speed limit of 20 mph, especially on sports gamedays and at night.
MSU PD will have no problem writing you a ticket for doing 30 mph in the 20 mph zone (the whole road).
And don’t forget that 4 way stop at the Lakeview intersection near the Coliseum. Although the signs are there, many people will run the signs.
Hwy 45 is a 4-lane highway both North and South of the Hwy 82 overpass. The speed limit is 65 MPH both North and South of the Overpass. However under the overpass the speed limit immediately drops to 55 MPH (still 4-lanes of traffic though), and both Loundes County Police and Miss. Hwy Patrol cars like to sit under the overpass and nail people who miss the 55 MPH signs. The also goes for people exiting off of Hwy 45 and onto Hwy 82 in either the East or West Direction.
