Coming off of the Bridge from Destin Entering Okaloosa

Destin, FloridaJun 07, 20101 Comments

The bridge is 35mph. At the base of the bridge, once you’ve turned the corner into Okaloosa, the speed drops to 25. The cop sits on the other side of the street waiting for your car to accelerate in speed do to the affect created by the decent from the bridge, and the fact that you normally accellerate into a turn. Then, before you even get to the corner, your being pulled over. He said he was giving us a break by not giving us a $300 ticket; he gave us one for over $120. Also, I noticed several cars stopped all along the main strip on Destin. If you choose to contest the ticket, and the judge finds you guilty than you may have to pay up to $500 in court costs/fees. If you go there (which I don’t recommend) include a budget for paying bogus tickets, from cops targeting tourists. I’ll never go back if I can help it.

I live in Destin and he is not describing either of our Bridges. It sounds more like the Brooks Bridge in Ft. Walton Beach, five miles west of Destin.
