near rest stop on U.S. 280
Be very careful in this area. Cops like to wait aside then get behind unsuspecting drivers. I always go 55 MPH in this area, and it seems like the cops intentionally get right on my tail in the hopes that I will go above the speed limit. So my big warning is the following: If you are going through this area and someone is driving really close behind you, DO NOT speed up. Even if it isn’t a cop behind you, a cop may see you going above 55 then pull you over and ticket you – without hesitation. I thought that roads, especially U.S. Highways, belonged to the people who pay for them (taxpayers), and that they are free to be used by anyone without risk of harassment. I guess I was wrong!
