Savanna, Oklahoma Speed Traps
Driving in the rain at night. Speed limit is 70 for miles. Then it quickly goes to 40 where there is an intersection. I paid attention to the light and intersection but somehow missed the speed limit change. I guess I was keeping up with the 18 wheeler next to me in the left lane. Cop came out after me and I was confused because I was doing 65. I have not had a ticket since 1986 so I was taken back when he said I was speeding. After departing I knew this place made a living from the poor speed warning. I hope I can help someone else.
I recently moved from TX to MO and then immediately decided to move back for many reasons. I’ve recently received a speeding ticket in March (3/25 at 3am). The speed limit had been 70 for miles… like 50 – 100 miles. The officer claimed it changed to 40 and clocked me at 67. I pleaded for a warning or reduction of any sort… to no avail. Unfortunately, I will have to pay today as I live in TX and no way to show up to fight. This is ridiculous and needs to be addressed for future victims.
NB signs go from 70 to 50 within one mile and last sign is hard to see.
