Hwy 48 entering Tupelo, OK from the East
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.
