Highway 64

The “inattentive driving” citations are STILL being given in Parkin, AR. Hard to believe that the state of Arkansas has allowed this to go on for several decades. I was driving on Hwy. 64 at 55mph and came into Parkin from the west. The speed limit currently drops to 50mph for an extremely short distance when you drive through the “town” of Parkin (at most it can currently be described as a community). A “police officer” (collector of revenue) was driving towards me and after passing me, did a U turn and pulled me over. A $275 citation for “inattentive driving”. I went to the police station (housed inside the community’s old high school) to speak to them about changing it to a speeding ticket. When I pulled up, the exact same police car used to pull me over was parked illegally in a handicap spot. I have the greatest respect for law enforcement, but without question this put them in a negative light. Of course they would not change it to an actual speeding ticket because it’s all about getting revenue for this declining community. Too bad, because it’s a pretty area.
