Ranlo, North Carolina Speed Traps
Ranlo and Lowell Police officers constantly patrol this road between the two towns. Sometimes Ranlo will even have several officers working together, which is odd for such a small town.
There is a meeting hall just north of the intersection of Spencer Mountain Rd. and Mitchem Rd. that is regularly used by the regions law enforcement agancies: Ranlo, Gaston Co., Gastonia, Lowell, NC DMV (now Motor Carrier Police) and SHP. When they have one of those meetings, you can rest assured that there will always be several SHP cars and others sitting off the road picking off drivers as they round a turn prior to that intersection and constant patrols on Spencer Mountain Rd.
