Hendersonville, North Carolina Speed Traps
This morning a Hendersonville City Policeman is standing behind a power pole about half way between 5th and Hwy 64. He is using a handheld radar. Vehicle is hidden somewhere else
Hendersonville City Police sit in the southern corner of the parking lot at Shelton’s Pharmacy clocking southbound traffic in the evening hours. This is for traffic coming down the hill from the stop light at Berkley Rd and Hwy 25. That intersection marks the city limits.
On highway 25, north (Asheville Hwy) a Henderson County sheriff deputy is hiding beside the Wilkie bldg behind the chain link fence. Checking both north and south bound with “instant on” radar.
This is on the east side between Freeman Gas and the RV repair.
The motorcycles for the City of Hendersonville, NC were back on duty this afternoon. One lone officer using an hand held radar on Blythe St.
Late night trap where officer claimed the I-26 speed was 60 mph. Immediately after mile marker 43 the posted limit is 65.
Ticket mandates that violator because he was going over 15mph over the posted limit MUST appear IN PERSON before the judge or be subject to a warrant. So for out of state residents this is a real problem.
The ticket does not state the address of the place to go…only “Annex” in Hendersonville is given. Also oddly on the ticket the officer does not state where the speeding took place…only stating “in a zone marked 60” and makes me wonder if local police are exceeding their jurisdictional limits. The ticket does not say if it is generated by a state officer or a city or county officer and there were no markings on his unmarked vehicle.
