Asheville, North Carolina Speed Traps
State Trooper hides behind shrubbery looking for speeders going East. May have motorists in scabby cars playing “leapfrog” to cause road rage. Is a very surly officer, and does not like people with CCW permits.
Speed goes from 55 to 20.
Recent (1 Nov) trap added.
The road is so terrible you’d hope they use the money to fix it.
Always be sure to ask the Magistrate in court for a “Non-Moving Violation”.
The speed limit goes from 45 to 35 sudden. If not careful they’ll ticket you.
Come off I-40 W at Biltmore Village. Limit posted as 35. 100 yards further, limit posted again at 35. 35 established, no? Suddenly it’s 20 for a couple of blocks, if you happen to catch the sign so soon after the second 35. Then 35 city-wide limit again. 20 limit is enforced at the request of the Grand Bohemian hotel, according to the officer.
I drove past the mother of all speed traps the other day. As I drove eastbound on I40 toward MM24, I passed 4) Haywood County officers with cars stopped on the westbound side all within 1 mile of each other. Then my V1 began alerting as I got closer to exit 24, and I spotted another Haywood County cruiser hiding on the westbound on-ramp. Then I noticed yet another of the same on the bridge over the interstate hitting cars going both ways as they approached and passed. Then as I continued past Exit 24 eastbound I saw two more cruisers with cars stopped on the eastbound side.
