Along highway 411

Benton, TennesseeNov 10, 20170 Comments

The highway 411 abruptly slows down from a speed limit of 55mph to 40mph. The police department conveniently camps out right at the 40mph sign and radars anyone coming in over the limit, which to most would be 15mph over due to the abrupt reduction in speed, along with the speed limit signs hard to read and low to the ground. (Not exaggerating, lowest signs I’ve ever seen for a traffic sign.. I’d guesstimate that they are 3.5 to 4 feet tall)

Police do NOT issue warnings. Upon further investigation of their department, it has less than 15 officers and ~50% (250k) of their revenue is from writing citations for speeding on 411 coming into town.

As previously stated, no warning. The cop didn’t even offer a chance to speak about the incident. Just asked for information and quickly walked away to his car. Came back and gave a ticket for over $120. Stated that you had to send a check or money order to the court house. No online portal, no debit/credit card payments were allowed. Uh, okay.
