Polk, North Carolina Speed Traps
I can’t believe this one isn’t already listed. This spot is at the bottom of a very steep drop on 1-26 Eastbound just below where you look out over South Carolina from the top of the mountain. The speed limit is 65 and folks really build up speed here unless they ride their breaks.
That’s what they’re taking advantage of. The trooper sits on the right shoulder just around the last bend before the bottom of the hill. Talk about dangerous as everybody slams their brakes on when they see this guy.
I’ve never been stopped here as I’m aware of how dicey this section is and go slowly, but I resent their causing more problems by trolling for cash out there.
