Hwy 69 & Hwy 64
Police sit regularly at the 55mph speed sign on hwy 69 just 1/4 mile east of hwy 64/69 intersection. There is a 200-300 meter section of road on hwy 69 that is marked 35mph even though the road through the center of town is 45mph! I have never noticed the 35mph sign until it was too late; pulled over at the 55mph sign for doing 54. Anyway, the 35mph speed limit is set artificially low and Crump police use it for revenue. There is no traffic on this road to speak of nor is there any safety reason for having it. I have been in contact with DOT to see if any safety study has ever been performed on this and it appears there has not. TN state law requires the performance of a safety study.
