Hayesville, North Carolina Speed Traps
On Hwy 64 West approximately two miles outside of Hayesville, NC there is a long straight section of the road just after a steep decline. A patrol car waits near the beginning of the straight-away at the bottom of the hill. It is likely you will exceed the 55 mph limit while coasting down the hill.
There is currently road construction going on for approximately 7 miles from town to Cold Branch Road which reduces the speed limit to 45mph even when no workers are present. SHP patrols this area very frequently. It’s very easy to exceed the speed limit here because the downhill from town will allow extra speed. SHP will nail you with a speeding ticket as well as speeding in a construction zone. Clay County deputies are often present while the construction is active, but do not have radar in their vehicles.
Speed limit is 45 and it is normally not a road with traffic. There is a 2 mile stretch just heading east from Brasstown to Warne that is straight. The officers often drive it because folks normally clip along at 60 in this area until they get to Warne NC and slow it to under 45.
