Commercial Point, Ohio Speed Traps
They will set inside of the 35 mile per hour area with their radar gun and as you creast a hill it changes to 35mph from 50mph and they nab you. They even pull you over on a curve so when another vehicle comes around the curve they have to move over in the other lane of oncoming traffic to get by. All they are good for are speeding ticket or an occasional stop by these ex West Jefferson Police for others reasons. If you have an emergency in this village and call 911 the Sheriff will be the one to respond.
This place is like another New Rome as a matter of fact some of the police are rejects from there. They have a new radar gun and just love to use it. They stop people on a corner and when another vehicle come around the corner they are right there.
I personally know the police officers who patrol this town and they have a lot to prove so they are on any car who goes over the speed limit. St.Rt. 762 is 55mph for the most part, although most people do 70mph. However, once you get into Commercial Point the speed limit drops to 35mph, and the sign is hard to see, especially at night. If the cops aren’t busy doing "other things", I plead the 5th on that, then you will get caught.
