Beechmont Avenue- West
I second the last post from the person who added Beechmont Avenue near the Beechmont Levee as a speed trap. I don’t know about it being so much as a speed trap, although as the other person said…one you’re on the levve, there’s no getting off. Traffic is heavier during the day hours so the police don’t stop too many cars. When the sun goes down and the midnight hour is at hand, it’s another story. I was stopped a couple of weeks ago on my way back from downtown. It was around 1:45 or so. I know better than to speed across there, but I got stopped any how. The cop that pulled me over came up to the car, told me that he stopped me for a headlight being out. He told me to be safe and let me go. The whole stop took 30 seconds. I’m sure he was checking to see if I had been drinking. Just a word of advice, if you travel the levee, don’t give them a reason to stop you.
