Near Walmart area all the way towards Deason

The speed limit has been lowered from 65MPH to 50MPH in order to “save lives” and, more importantly, to increase revenue. As it stands right now, about everyone going that stretch is simply ignoring the speed change. This will probably continue to be the case until the speed differential increases the accidents enough to warrant increasing it to at least 55mph.

Cops are everywhere. They will sit on the side of the road in the emergency lane, parked DAMN close to the oncoming flow of traffic, so you have to be careful or you could end up hitting them. They will also sit on a lot of the side roads where it is difficult to see them, until it is too late.

I would highly recommend a radar detector for this stretch.

To make matters worse, they ended up doing this without giving anyone any warning, and from what I hear the cops are handing tickets out left and right, instead of giving a warning to motorists that are accustomed to the reasonable 65mph zone it was before.
