Asher, Oklahoma Speed Traps
East of town
The speed limit dropped from 65 to 40 and she was sitting hidden down in a little gully on the south side of the road, but facing east, just on the other side of the 40 speed limit. No way to slow down fast enough. First and last time through Asher!
Asher, near the 4-way stop
I drove through this town twice daily for 3 years. I was never stopped (because I was warned by everyone I knew), but I saw other cars being pulled over VERY frequently. The speed limits are different than most places (30, 40, 50 instead of 35, 45, 55) if I recall correctly. If you ask anyone within 100 miles what they know about Asher, 98 of them will say “speed trap”.
any direction you enter the small town, you will get stopped.
There is one officer and he stops anyone who is even close to speeding, There isn’t even a town there just a couple quick stops and the cop writing tickets.
Speed limit drops quickly……cops hidden behind trees, buildings, etc. They give no warnings. Many instances of people insisting that they were not speeding; especially those who were not residents.
North Asher on OK State 177
Asher police have been caught moving the speed limit signs closer together in order to give you less time to slow down. All the comments advising that Asher is a speed trap are true. My daughter received a ticket for 69 in a 45. She had only gone about 150 yards from the four-way Stop. She was driving a ten year old compact car and it won’t go that fast in that distance even if it’s down hill. She was also threatened with a ticket for not getting her insurance card out fast enough.
