Fayetteville, North Carolina Speed Traps
As you come upon the on ramp, a patrolman is usually waiting just out of sight. The speed limit changes to 45 from 55mph just before the on ramp and many ignore it because the freeway ends just past that at a stop light.
Police and Highway Patrol regularly set up speed traps entering Fayetteville on Highway 87 (MLK Freeway) from Interstate 95 and vice versa. They usually set up at the Fayetteville city limits near the East Mountain Drive exit. The police usually set up their trap as you enter the city and the highway patrol as you leave the city heading for the interstate.
Along All American, the city police will use several techniques in finding speeders. They will back their cars into the hidden area directly next to the overpass bridge of Cliffdale Road. They will also park underneath the same bridge while facing traffic so that when you come around the curve and see them parked there it is too late. Lastly, the city has various undercover vehicles like Suburbans that will patrol All American.
Cops sit up on the over-pass over Raeford Road waiting for unsuspecting victims to reach 55 mph before the 45 mph zone is over. They wait for you to get on All American off of Owen on your way to Fort Bragg and then show their appreciation for all our troops sacrifices by giving out speeding tickets because we accelerated a little bit too soon….100 or so yards too soon to be exact.
