I-57 in Pulaski County
I’m 75 years old and have been driving since I was 16. I got my first and only traffic ticket here. The officer, who was driving a mud-colored unmarked car, pulled me over for speeding in a “construction zone”. Of course, there’s no actual construction and never has been. Because I live out of state (far from this godforsaken county) I couldn’t appear in person in court. This cost me $300 for an attorney and $872 in fines and court costs. Needless to say, from here on I’ll drive many miles out of my way in order to forever avoid this hideous county.
