NC Highway Patrol and Cleveland County Police absolutely love this area for out-of-state drivers. Roughly about 65% of all tickets for speeding are handed out to out-of-state drivers in this area. I am a former clerk of court in a neighboring county and noticed this in the court dockets for several years. I asked a friend’s husband (a current NCHP Officer) about this and was told that drivers from other states will just pay the ticket by mail without contesting it therefore saving the state money by not having to hold court. If you are not from North Carolina, then driver beware! You are a target. I have personally seen dockets for as little as 5mph over in this area! All of them from out-of-state drivers!

This is not a speed trap. I85 is a major drug trafficking corridor from Atlanta east. The law enforcement working this road could care less about a speeder unless ur hauling large sums of money from drug proceeds or shipments of drugs your not a target. At least in the eyes of the sheriffs interdiction team.
