Hendersonville, North Carolina Speed Traps
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.
State Trooper hides along very curvy road with many varying speed limits in short distances. Driver trying to pay attention to dangerous road while speed limits change dramatically. State Trooper on this County Road usually mid month.
Toward the north end (Hwy 64) the Hendersonville City motorcycle police have started standing behind the power pole on the east side of the street with a portable radar gun. His partner is across the street ready to quickly pull the motorists over.
The city of Hendersonville, NC now has started using unmarked police vehicles. One is a white Crown Vic that is used by the parking officer, per their statement you can receive tickets for speeding.
One other is a tan suv that is actually used by a patrolman.
Hwy Patrol and County Sheriff’s are hiding near a vacant lot between Sevier Dr. and the Entrance to the Recycle Station. They do this during hours the collection station and recycling station are not open. This used to be 45 now it is 35 MPH
