Carthage Bypass near Top of Hill Past Bluff

Carthage, TennesseeOct 23, 20063 Comments

Coming down the hill it goes from 55 to 40 to 30 within 100 yards.

Just FYI, since the new Walmart was built and a light was installed, the speed limit has changed on this strech of Hwy from 55 to 45. It doesn't go back up to 55 till you are either past Hwy 80 going toward Hartsville, or past the soccer field if you are going toward Gordonsville. In my experience, they will (gratefully) flash me if I forget going up the hill. Also in my experience, during the election periods the speed limit is rigorously enforced, beware. I got popped w/tickets in this and surrounding counties 3 times in 2 months and I know I wasn't alone! Gratefully, the counties didn't "communicate" with each other and I was able to go to defensive driving classes to keep them off my record... but they all got their money.. Carthage was by far the least expensive! Love my little piece of small town USA!

this area could become a speed trap but at present time it is not. if the city wanted to make money there they could very easy as almost every one is speeding here. it is 45mph from the parts house to the top of hill and theplace from turners to wal mart looks like a race track

There is no speed traps in this town because there is NO law enforcement especially South Carthage! It's a speeders paradise!
