Anywhere on Lumina Dr.

Wrightsville Beach, North CarolinaAug 03, 20031 Comments

when you first go over the bridge onto wrightsville beach, the posted speed is 35. you go around a bend towards the left and the road becomes lumina, and the speed changes to 25, which is hard to see if there are alot of tourists out (alot of distraction, and the sign isn’t very obvious). these cops will pull you for going even 4 over, their excuse is there are people out walking, but i live in wilmington and know about their erosion problem, so the revenue is going to repair the homes of rich people who live there (heard this from several people and 2 professors). i was behind 2 other people doing 35, so i was going their speed and the cop pulled me over. he was a real jerk about it, i was at least trying to show that i honestly thought the limit was 35, and that i had just moved there and was looking for the road i was supposed to turn off on. he didn’t care.

Writer may live in Wilmington and know of beach renourishment but, knows nothing about NC law. All traffic fines go to the New Hanover County School Board - not the municipality where the traffic citation is issued. WB population swells from 5K to 40K during Spring and Summer and this area is a heavy pedistrian area. Signs are posted but, most drivers are looking at the bikinis.
