NC Higway 50 Between NC 210 & US 70

Not so tricky, but you will pass so many radar emitting troopers that you might think there are no more left in the county, and then another on is right over the next turn.

In the 1970's the highway patrol needed a location to certify troopers in the use of radar. Part of that training was requiring future radar operators to estimate the speed of vehicles. We sat down with the highway patrol and found a location that suited their needs and the training began. The location was in the city limits and local politicians suffered severe heartburn. The location on NC 50, where you noticed all the troopers, is for radar training and they are not certified to write citations. In fact, they are not sworn law enforcement as they are in basic training. P.L. McIver Chief of Police (Retired) Garner, NC
