George II Hwy & Brunswick Rd

Southport, North CarolinaJul 23, 20090 Comments

Small village north of Southport on NC HWY 87. The town appears bigger on Google maps than it actually is. A large number of the streets are not inhabited. There is very little traffic, except during rush hour when people are commuting through the town to/from work. Town speed limit on NC 87 (a.k.a George II) is 45 MPH. The city limits on the south end of town extend almost 1 mile beyond anything that resembles a town. Motorist approaching the town from the south and not paying attention, are tempted to maintain to their previous 55 MPH speed. When exiting the town to the south motorist are tempted to return to 55 because they mistakenly think they have exited the town limits. Town police usually hide around Brunswick Road and also patrol the highway heavily. Radar is the detection method often used. Up to 50 MPH he may not bother with you. Anything between 51 – 55 you might get by with a warning if the cop is in a good mood. 56 and beyond, expect to be contributing to the local economy.

Be very careful when getting off the ferry. I was disoriented and the sun was shining right in my face. The speed limit is 35 miles per hour when you get off the ferry and enter southport, even though the first mile and a half there are no houses. BE CAREFUL!!!!
