Wilmington, North Carolina Speed Traps
As soon as you leave the 40mph zone coming off Kerr into the 35mph zone on Randall before entrance where Tax Office is in tall brick building.
Just an FYI. I was traveling 45 on this road and blue mustang pulled me over and wrote me for 59mph. I live 1/4 mi. from here and wouldn’t speed; I know better. So, now I have to fight it. Why can’t Wilmington P.D. get funds honestly instead of preying on innocent taxpayers. Total ABUSE OF PUBLIC OFFICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Greenville Loop Rd is a huge speed trap. Althought there is a posted speed limit of 45, just before the big curve the speed is reduced to 35 mph. There is usually a patrol car or motorcycle policing that stretch of rd.
Due to a lot of neighbor complaints about speed and some idiot kids that do (who probably have not been cited), this has become a HUGE speed trap. Posted speed is 25 – and even slows to 20 near the CVS!!!! – they sit on side streets – like I said, the rotten apples that caused the complaints still manage to “elude” Wilmington’s finest … I still see them speeding through with no consequence!!! They must know the usual times — I do not.
Be careful when traveling west on Oleander, the speed limit on Oleander drops from 45 mph to 35 mph when crossing S. College Rd. It used to be 45 mph all the way west to S. 41st St, but no more. I got a ticket last year going 50 mph. and the WPD undercover mustang officer showed “No mercy” to my explanation re: speed limit change. Bye, Bye, $165.00 !
