48 Near Hwy 3
I was driving on 48 toward Ada at night. Very difficult to see. But I manage to see the speed limit drop from 65 to 45. Pressing on my breaks, I was trapped when suddenly, a few feet from the 45 speed limit, there was 35 speed limit. I was still on my break when I was stopped. The cop said I was going 55 according to his radar.
After handing me my ticket, he told me he didn’t run my license in case I was to be stopped ahead making me look like a repeat violator. How transparent! It was practically an admission of how challenging it is to navigate the little city at night without getting a ticket (or tickets). And when he pointed ahead, indicating “in case you’re stopped ahead”, there was a siren in view. Returning from Ada the next day, there was someone being pulled over in the same area. Clearly a trap from the faulty but purposefully faulty way of setting those speed limit signs only a few feet apart, with a drastic drop from 65 to 45, then immediately to 35. In private business, such a practice would be racketeering. Wouldn’t it?
