Marshall, North Carolina Speed Traps
25/70 West goes steeply down hill from the Buncombe county line into Madison county as well as in the opposite direction. Two State police cars (facing opposite) are usually at the base of the hill. Speed limit is 55 and you must ride your brakes constantly to maintain this speed.

State trooper working this section almost continuously. Speed limit is 55 on a three lane Interstate. Nothing but a money-making racket routed to court in Marshall. Compare to reasonably set 65 mph limits on the old Saluda grade section of I-26 above the South Carolina line. Wonder if the state pension fund has bought stock in a brake lining manufacturer?
Road has just recently been improved to a 4 lane interstate. The speed limit has however remained at 55. I was caught within one mile of the tennessee state line where the speed limit is 65. Officers were staged about 3 -5 miles apart on Labor day weekend south bound to Asheville. I was ticketed at 71 mph. I cannot mail in a payment I must appear or pay an attourney to appear in my behalf. I received a letter from an attourney that would handle my case for $ 300.00 up front (minimum). it sounds like ambulance chasing to me.
