Hwy 48 entering Tupelo, OK from the East

Tupelo, OklahomaFeb 19, 20120 Comments

The signs are small and very close together and the you need to decrease your speed by tapping your brakes. I was pulled over by a young officer in the fanciest cruiser I have ever seen – and brand new!!! I explained that I was bringing my very pregnant daughter to the regional Indian hospital for medical services (he could see her) and I did not see the signs. I am a mother and grandmother for heavens sakes and not some speedster. He gave me a ticket anyway – could just as easily given me a warning but I had out of state plates (Texas) and I am sure all he saw were $$$$$. Beware, Beware. Have talked with locals who told me that Tupelo got new police cars with the federal stimulus money and are giving out tickets right and left now.
