Hwy 54. West end of town.

Curryville, MissouriOct 04, 20110 Comments

Curryville is a backwoods, destitute stretch of state highway on which some structures from long ago still stand. A ridiculous measure in Missouri allows municipalities to keep all proceeds from ticketing, so Curryville generally situates an officer on the West end of “town” (as the speed shifts from 45 to 35 over a very short span), and snipes people headed to or from Jefferson City or Columbia. There doesn’t appear to be a single commercially viable establishment in the town, and it looks like most of the buildings are abandoned besides a home or two (what could only be the police officer’s). They will definitely get you if they can. Tickets are fairly pricey.
Officer did not show his radar gun on request (my ticket was 11 over) but tickets are as follows:
3-10 mph over: $102.50
11-15 mph over: $142.50
16-19 mph over: $322.50
20 + mph over: $422.50

Some other ticket highlights distributed here:
Pass w/in 100′ of intersection: $102.50
Noise Ordinance: $142.50
Careless/Reckless: $272.50
“Following to [sic] close”: $102.50
