US 61 all through town and US 36

Hannibal, MissouriJun 25, 20150 Comments

On 61, the speed limit rapidly decreases from 65 to 55, 45, and 35 as you enter town from north. Every traffic signal has a red light camera. As you go through town, the limit changes to 45, 55, back to 45, 55 again, and 65 as you exit. Every time I go through Hannibal, I see at least one cop. Also, on US 36 and I 72, the speed limit goes to 55 for no reason as it is a limited access road. There are always cops patrolling. Be very careful or just bypass town.

From the north end of US61 to the south end, there are 3 red light photo radar with hair triggers. Speed zones and hills are a factor with dramatic down shifts in speed and blind hill stop lights that are now armed with stop light photo. If you are even close, they send you a ticket and you can even watch it on-line, but it does no good to argue as you always lose.

A policeman waits under the second 55mph sign as you come off the bridge from Illinois just after you are used to going 65mph. I got nipped at 71 and fined $125 plus $257 of court bond fees that even though I paid on time through the mail.
