I-85 North and South

High Point, North CarolinaNov 14, 20100 Comments

I drive up and down I-85 regularly, varying from trips to Charlotte up to Greensboro. The worst area of I-85 is I-85 North and South, between south Greensboro near Grandover golf resort and where Highway 62 intersects I-85. Highway 62 intersects I-85 in Archdale, NC.

There will usually be a NC State Trooper, Archdale city police or Randolph county Sheriff patrol car parked in the median between North and South I-85. This is, in my opinion, the worst stretch of I-85 between North Charlotte area and South Greensboro. There has been a lot of construction work in this area in recent years, but still, there is so much police on this stretch, it makes me suspicious that someone somewhere is getting kickbacks or something for bringing in so many tickets. That is speculation on my part, but it has made me wonder.

I have not gotten pulled over myself, but it does make traveling on this stretch of I-85 unpleasant. You have to be extra vigilant on this stretch, to the point of where it makes you want to avoid driving on this particular stretch of I-85 entirely.
